Hello, my name is Annette.
I have been a caregiver since the late 90's. I am caring, kind, compassionate, and driven to get the job done. I first became a caregiver because of my passion and care for others and the process of healing. This has proven true to date as I care for families and family members of my own that have gone through mild to severe terminal illnesses such as broken bone(s) and cancer.
In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering at homeless shelters, reading, singing, and nature walking. As a caregiver I am most proud of my ability to provide both empathy and sympathy with upmost professionalism. It is my promise to myself and clients to live, practice, and learn from the Golden Rule of life. What makes me a great caregiver is that I'm a caring loving person and I care about my clients/residents and how they feel, I'm a very understanding person, working as a caregiver I consider it my calling not just a job ,I become a caregiver due to being encouraged by my grandmother who is no longer with me, giving her the best care in her last moments and hearing her say you will make a good nurse someday really encouraged me to get in this field, It became a part of me and every person I care for I remember what my granny said to me, So I do it to the best of my ability and each person I touch I try to make a difference in their lives, what I like about being a caregiver is comforting my clients,making them feel safe and secure being there for them just listening to them,understanding their needs ,comforting them and knowing I'm making a difference in their lives.My Personal Achievement is I'm proud I can make someone mom or dad smile and to hear that I'm doing a great d job with their family member,and being able to make a difference is what makes the difference I am a licensed CNA, seeking the very best for their loved ones, many years of experience.
