CircleOf spent time getting to know leaders who make a difference in their community, and we want you to know them too.
Roz Jones is a professional caregiver, coach, speaker and author based in Jacksonville, Florida. We highly recommend tuning in to her Clubhouse sessions or checking out her YouTube series too
I am a CNA (certified nursing assistant) and own a Non-Medical Home Healthcare business. I help caregivers to reduce the S.O.S. on their journey.
The relationship I have to my clients is a supportive companion for sharing stories, interests, and activities.
The person I was advocating and caring for was a member of my church. She asked me to go to the hospital with her while she was having surgery.
I wasn’t familiar with the term caregiver, to be honest. I didn’t understand what it meant until the nurse at the hospital told me I was giving great care to a patient who wasn’t related to me.
I learned to speak new languages (hahaha). I also take naps.
I not only teach, but practice meditation in my club on Clubhouse. The club was initially a hobby for friends, but turned into a safe place for caregivers to discuss their needs for caregiving and their self-care needs for themselves.
I have four specific things I want to tell all family caregivers to think about:
Having an enduring spirit of service and nurturing.
