My name is Deanna Richardson, and although I am only 20, I would like to consider myself as an experienced caregiver (although I know that there is much more to learn). I also consider myself as very hard working, reliable, trustworthy, and compassionate. Before getting my CNA certification in October of 2016, I cared for several family members in high school that had mental disorders, a stroke, and dementia. After receiving my CNA certification I went straight to work. I have worked home health, in a hospital, and hospice care. I am very passionate about caring for others; I truly believe that it is my "calling." I do not see being a CNA as a job, but as an opportunity to be there for someone during their time of need. As a CNA, I know that it is the little things that count. I enjoy being able to make my patients feel better whether it is from helping them get a bath or just being their for them through companionship.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
