Senior Caregiver Summer Photo Contest Winners (Part 2)

CNAs, CHHAs, professional caregivers, and family caregivers were invited to participate in a summer-long contest on the Caregiverlist Facebook page and the photos were heartwarming. The winners of our first-ever Summer Photo Contest for Senior Caregivers were announced yesterday. In that blog, we highlighted our first-place winner (based on the number of votes per photo), Christi M., who won with 877 votes.

Today we highlight the other two of our top 3 winners.

Edward Hatfield, second-place winner for his photo submission, “Our Wedding Day,” with 848 votes.
Mr. Hatfield will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

My name is Edward Hatfield. I am 50 years old and disabled. I have a rare form of arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis which causes bone fusion. My neck and spine are fused. As part of this disease I also have Degenerative Joint Disease. Before my disability got bad I was a crisis- alcohol- and drug-respite counselor for about 12 years.

I am married to my wonderful wife Susan who is also disabled with Spina Bifida. She means the world to me and is one of the sweetest loving persons I know. Due to her having Spina Bifida, she developed a severe bed sore on her tailbone. She was hospitalized twice due to a severe infection. I got my First Aid, CPR, and Caregiver Certification so I could take care of her properly. Also who could better take care of her then her husband or a family member to give her the love and care she needs? Being a Caregiver means the world to me. A Caregiver has to be a loving and caring person — not someone who just collects a paycheck. I have always loved the healthcare field and helping take care of others. This take a special person.

Caitlin Villasenor, is the third prize winner. Her untitled photo shows multi-generational caregiving and received 420 votes.
Ms. Villasenor will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.

I’ve been a caregiver for the last few years and I have to say it is very rewarding. You really can learn a lot from being a caregiver. First, you are helping those in need which is simply amazing in itself. Also, I’ve found that it is a great way to learn about the past. I’ve heard so many stories about how life used to be. I’ve learned a lot of history, and that’s very rewarding. Finally, I find that I made a life-long friend. I feel that I can talk to them about anything and they really listen. Its some of the most amazing work I have ever done. Sure, sometimes it is really hard and there are days I want to quit, but then I realize I have someone depending on me and needing me and I cannot and will not let them down.

Caregiverlist congratulates all our Summer Photo Contest participants. It takes a special person to become a caregiver. If you know someone who fits the bill, you can still win! Enter our Refer-A-Friend program and you can win a free t-shirt, lapel pin and 10-hour online caregiver training program, or you may win our monthly grand prize — Scrub of the Month, courtesy of Scrubs Magazine.

Caregiver Winners of the Summer Photo Contest Announced

Certified Nursing Aides, CHHAs, professional and family caregivers entered Caregiverlist’s first-ever Summer Photo Contest for Senior Caregivers. We counted the votes were and the winners were announced this morning. The top 3 voted photos submitted of caregivers with the seniors in their care win Amazon gift cards. Runner-ups receive free t-shirts. The contest was conducted on Facebook and ran from Monday, July 8, 2013 until voting closed on August 31, 2013. You can see the results of the voting here.

First prize of a $100 Amazon gift card is awarded to Christi M., whose submission “Clary and I” received 877 votes.

Here's a little bit about her:

I am a 29 year old caregiver in more ways than one. I am a daughter, a wife, a Mom, a Granddaughter, a transporter and a friend of the elderly. During the day my job is to transport the elderly. I am responsible for 6 people at a time. I am responsible for keeping them safe and making sure they arrive to their destination without any trouble. I make sure they trust and know me so they feel safe in my care. I have to admit some days are harder than others since you never know if the patient had their medication or if they are just not in the mood. I always put their needs first and approach everything with a smile. A smile is the best cure and is highly contagious. I transport a gentleman who loves to sing. It is the same song "Take me out to the ballgame" over and over, but it seems to make everyone's day. When I see him sad, I start to sing and he perks right up and starts signing. I believe it reminds him of his childhood.

My day does not end there. I also care for my husband and two children, which is a 24/7 365 days a year job. There is no sick days or vacation days. There is no paychecks or breaks, but I wouldn't give it up for all the money in the world. I also helped take care of my Grandmother, which consisted of changing sheets, cleaning bed pans, sponge baths, dressing, giving medicine, feeding, transporting, long sleepless nights, all while still working. She passed away and if I had it all to do over, I wouldn't change a thing. I would empty a thousand bed pans as long as I knew it was helping someone. To me, being a caregiver is about passion, love, caring, and being selfless. Above all the needs of everyone I care for comes before my own. I remember everyone I have ever cared for and each and everyone of them have touched my heart in one way or another. They have helped mold me into the wonderful caregiver I am today. Caregiving can be both rewarding and challenging at the same time but I wouldn't change it for anything.

Edward Hatfield was a close second with 848 votes for his photo submission, “Our Wedding Day.” Edward will receive a $50 Amazon gift certificate.

Caitlin Villasenor, is the third prize winner of a $25 Amazon gift card. Her untitled photo shows multi-generational caregiving and received 420 votes.

We'll be featuring each of them in upcoming posts.

Senior caregivers provide emotional support and socialization for seniors, enabling many families to continue to support grandparents and parents with quality care in their home. Adult children often do not live in the same city as their aging parents which means caregiving often becomes much more than a job for senior caregivers.

Caregivers perform the essential job functions for their senior clients—from seniors who need 24-hour care to those in nursing facilities. Working as a professional caregiver provides employee benefits along with a fulfilling career. Caregiver Training is crucial to providing professional care. Caregiverlist offers a 10-hour online orientation training course that meets most states' requirements and was created by members of the senior care industry's national association. 

Caregiverlist continues to show the love to caregivers with our Refer-a-Friend program. If you know someone who would make a great caregiver, refer them to Caregiverlist and be entered to win a free t-shirt or $50 gift card.

Caregiverlist congratulates all those who submitted photos of themselves with the seniors in their care.
