Applicant's Story

Regarding your work experience, what's most appealing to you?

'The purpose of my work'

When do you know you've done a good job? 

'I feel it'

Why are you a caregiver... or want to become one? (What's most important to you about this work?)

'Being a caregiver to me means providing individuals with not only physical care but emotional as well. Companionship has been shown to cause healthy dispositions in the elderly. To help those that otherwise would be alone is something that would be very rewarding for me. I am passionate about making a positive impact on individuals lives. '

Tell me the story of a time when you were there for someone who really needed you?

'I have a friend that suffers from sever depressive episodes. When they slip into one of these episodes I provide support by checking on them daily, cooking meals, encourage them to get out of bed to shower and eat. I make sure their cat is fed and the fridge is stocked with their favorite snacks. '

How can I help create a supportive and positive work experience for you?

'Having clear expectations is essential to a healthy work environment for me. I am here to earn my wage and do the best job I possibly can. So knowing what is expected of me and having good communication will help me to do that. '

Think of the person who was most meaningful to you growing up. What makes them special to you?

'My father has always been the most supportive and encouraging person in my life. He grew up in poverty and faced many challenges in his youth. He over came bullying and abuse and is now very successful, happy and thriving in life. He taught me to never feel inadequate, that I am capable of achieving anything I want in life and is a living example of that. '

Please share one or two memories that you have with that person.

'When I was 10 years old I wanted more than anything to learn to ride horses. He set up lessons for me and devoted 3 hours every Saturday evening to drive to them and stay with me. We connected so much during that time. He cheered me on and encouraged me to stick with it when I would get insecure. One day I had an accident and ended up falling under a horse. As a parent I’m sure he was terrified, I was scared as could be and crying but came out of it unharmed. He picked me up, dusted the dirt off of me and told me that I am brave and strong and that I needed to get back on the horse. He wiped the tears from my face and told me how proud he was of me. He didn’t show his own fear I’m sure he had. Sniffling like crazy and still fighting back tears I gathered my horse, rearranged my saddle and got back on. He still talks about that day with such pride and every time I’m taken back to that moment and I feel so empowered. I love that I am my fathers daughter and work every day to make him proud. '
