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?

'I enjoy assisting people with their needs, I'm detailed oriented and have proficient computer skills. I like working in an office setting and working with seniors. I feel like the Office Coordinator would be a great mix of those two areas.'

Tell me of a time when you were there for someone who really needed you.

'This summer my 81 year old mother-in-law was on a trip with a church group. They had a weather delay in Dallas, Texas and ended up with an extended layover which required a two night stay in Dallas before returning home to Oregon. On the second night she was able getting into the shower and fell. Her roommate called the paramedics and at the ER it was determined that she had fractured two vertebrae in her back. Most of the group was leaving the next morning and the rest that evening. She was going to be alone in a strange city. I flew down to Texas to be with her and help her through the process. She was in severe pain and was having lapses in memory and losing bits of time. She was completely disoriented and could not keep up with what was going on. When the doctors told use that she was going to need a surgery and would be in the hospital for at least a week. That week turned in to two and a half weeks. I stayed at a hotel and the entire time. I would go to the hospital in the morning - take notes on every thing the doctors said, make notes about changes that would be needed at home, update family back home and collect all data and imaging that was done for her while there. Once we were able to fly home I had everything arranged for her return. I'd ordered all the assistance devices she would need, had home health scheduled to start through her doctor here at home and even found a hospital bed for her to use during her recovery.
I was at their house every day to assist her and ensure that my father-in-law had time to rest as well. My mother-in-law is now back to most of her normal activities and able to live without assistance again. She calls me every day and continues to tell me how much it means to her that I was there for her given our past. She states that she never would have made it through without my assistance and is happy to have me in the family.'

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

'I didn't have many positive role models growing up that weren't on TV. As a kid I was ecstatic every time Mr. Rogers came on because he cared. Growing up I believe that person who was most meaningful to me would be my younger brother. He made me need to be stronger for him and no matter what I did he was always there to support me and love me.'

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

'I don't honestly know that I can narrow my brother down to one or two memories. All my life he has been a sounding board, a place I can go to vent, to laugh, to love. There hasn't been many moments in my life where my brother wasn't involved in person or in heart.

In 2001 I moved to Oregon from Ohio. In the fall of that year I called my brother up to tell him I was pregnant. I informed him that I was having a boy and that there was no other name that could be appropriate to give my son. I asked my brother if he would be ok with me naming my son after him. He was so proud to have that honor. Now, even 17 years later, every time I look at my son I think of my brother. It's like I have a piece of him living right here with me.'

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

'I think honesty, assistance, kindness and having a good heart with always create a supportive and positive work environment'
