1. I have a great sense of humor and understanding. I was a CNA at a nursing home for 4 years and then was an at home health care caregiver before I joined the administration team for my current job. 2. I was a dietary aid for 2 years and decided that I wanted to be more hands on with helping the elderly. In the nursing home I was at I saw some great caregivers and some not so great. It got me thinking that I should be doing more and I know that anyone I would take care of would receive the best care I could give. I wanted to do more and let the family members know that their loved one would be okay. 3. What I enjoyed the most was bringing a smile to the person I was taking care of. I also enjoy to know peoples stories and what makes them who they're today. If I can be that one bright spot in their day, then it's all worth it to me. Everyone deserves great care and understanding. 4. A personal achievement of mine is because of all the training I have, schooling on long term care/ elderly and understanding of what it takes to be a great caregiver- I am able to provide great care to my grandmother who lives with my aunt due to a stroke. She can depend on me when my aunt needs extra help and I know exactly how to take care of her the proper way without causing her to be in any danger.

I am a great caregiver because, I always sacrifice and always put people's needs ahead of me than my own. I became a caregiver when my own lovely father became ill of stroke, diabetic, hypertension, urine retention and cardiovascular disease; that was when I understood how important it is to be a caregiver. And afterwards, I always go out there to give a hand for families who needs help but can not afford hiring a private aide or through an agency. I receive the gift of kindness and longsuffering for such peoples. I have the heart of being patient, I am very humble and respectful due to where I was brought up . My personal achievement I am proud of is I have develop that kind of heart to towards all people through being a caregiver. Again whenever I go to peoples homes, everything negative changes to positive because I am a positive spirited person and I have the I can do spirit. I am a life changer inwardly and outwardly. I am very proud of that. I am always happy, even in times of difficult I put on smiles I don't allow the darkness to rule my light. I am not a pet person. I am a Christian, down to earth, very neat and clean, i don't smoke or drink, i drive, I cook very well, clean, wash, well experience in stroke, broken hip, diabetics, Parkinson, cancer, companionship. Am able to lift up to 125pounds. Why don't you set me up for an interview and try me for 5 to 7days I bet you wouldn't let me step an inch out of the door.
