About Emily

I decided to become a caregiver at a very young age. My grandmother's battle with cancer had a huge influence on my decision to join the medical field. I applied at Oakview Health and Rehabilitation to participate in their CNA classes. I was more than thrilled to have gotten a call saying I was accepted, this was in May of 2014. I was certified, then later started working as a CNA there. I left in February of this year to try a more personal type of caregiving. I honestly didn't like being in a rush while feeding, grooming, bathing, or just simply helping someone. I went to a home health agency in Rome, GA and worked with several different clients. I had two full time clients both located in Lafayette, Ga that I cared for 12 hours a day, 4 or 5 days a week. Needless to say, I was extremely attached and they were like my own grandparents. They both passed away, and because of lack of clients, I decided to go back full time at Oakview. I have absolutely fallen in love with being a caregiver, it gives me a feeling that nothing else can compare to. I love to care for others, and every patient I've ever had immediately becomes family to me. I get along very well with other people and have a lot of patience. The home health agency I worked for actually sent me to the difficult clients because they knew I could soften them up! I have never had a complaint from a client or a family member, and I intend to keep it that way. If you have any questions or would like more information, fee

    I've been an LPN in Ga. Since 2004, I specialize in senior care,I'm CPR/ first aid certified as well, flexible, friendly and available to work lots of hours. I have worked in the private duty/home setting for several different couples, and on and off since around 2008. I am highly skilled and have excellent references, upon request. I love working with senior clients. I do everything from meal prep, bathing , grooming to medication reminders. Also taking clients to/from Dr's appointments or physical therapy. No task is too small or too great. I'm confident and I know I'm a great nurse/ caregiver, been doing this professionally for over 20 years. My resume & references also speak volumes about my work ethic. I look forward to hearing back, and hopefully giving your loved, the care & compassion, that they deserve . Thanks for reading. - Saisha

    I love the elderly. Friendly personality. I've always had the passion for caring for others, especially elderly. I'm very respectful and I wear my heart on my shoulders. I am an easy learner if I haven't handled something before. I enjoy finding the problem and taking a step back to observe all possible solutions.
