I have worked for SARAH Tuxis for the past 3+ years. Within this non-profit organization I have received a great deal of training and information on how to care for others. I have worked in group home settings assisting mentally challenged adults with their everyday needs. My responsibilities included but were not limited to: medication delegation, money management, diet, daily schedules, fundraising, community outreach, attending doctors appointments, housekeeping, personal care and hygiene, and striving to meet clients personal goals. I would like to be a caregiver to better the quality of an individuals life. I received my bachelors degree in psychology in 2008. My interest for entering into this field was to better understand people and as a result ultimately be able to help them mentally, physically, and emotionally. After working as a direct support provider for over three years I have learned that I can apply all of those principles by caring for others that need assistance. I feel it is a greatly rewarding profession that I have come to enjoy immensely.
