The thing that makes me a great Caregiver is : I love caring for people who need my help ! I'm a CNA , and have worked in a Nursing Home , Private Group Homes , and done Private In Home Healthcare for the elderly . I even took care of my own Mother in my home for several years , seeing to her meds , personal hygiene , meals etc... I took care of her until she was almost 88 years old , became extremely ill , was put on Hospice , and she passed away in my home , with me present ! I basically love people , and find caring for those that need the help of a CNA , very rewarding . A little history about me : I was a stay at home Mom for 20+ years , and raised 5 beautiful children . They are all grown now , and very successful ! All my patients loved me because they knew I really cared about them , and their families ! I have been a Certified Dementia Practitioner since 2014. I have extensive experience with Special Needs and Seniors (since 1987.) I have had been lucky enough to work with the elderly since (1987.)

I have always worked as a caregiver of some kind. In 1995 I switched gears to work as a live in caregiver for a disabled young lady with Cerebral Palsy.
