I have over 35 years in the care-giving and home care field. I am semi retired. I am passionate about caring for the elder generation, as they are mentors to me and living history. I have extensive experience in multiple disciplines of care, from basic home health, to sub acute (rehab) and hospice and palliative care. I am patient, reliable, compassionate, and energetic. Over 35 years of CNA experience I am showing interest, in your posting the care of you/your loved one. I am looking for a part time case and shorter commute. I am skilled in many aspects of home care and senior needs from simple companion care, non medical and medical care and hospice cases and special needs, such as medication, ADLs (activities of daily living) monitoring vitals according to Doctor's orders, carrying out therapies as directed. I am very patient and reliable.
I am 26 years old with 2 children and my husband is retired military. To give you an idea of where I came from and who I am- As a child I grew up around an uncle who needed constant care. I watched nurses in and out, from the time I was 3 years old, taking care of his needs and helping him, simply live. Eventually, I took on that responsibility, at 16 I decided to go into the medical field by starting as a general doctor's assistant in Greenville, MS. I worked for a nephrologist, Dr. Patel, who helped build me into the caregiver I am today. After high school, I then went directly into doing CNA work and continued throughout the birth of my children. I feel that the moment I walk into a home/room to visit my resident, a smile goes a long way. I have always been known for my super southern hospitality and for my great bedside manner. I always try to remember the values and morals my mother instilled in me (as Her career is private sitting herself) to remember to treat everyone around me, the way I would want my own mother treated. I absolutely LOVE talking and hearing of my residents past, when they were younger, how the world was different and seeing their faces light up, because someone is honestly intrigued of their journey in life.
Skills & Certifications: Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
I have 20 plus years of experience in the healthcare industry. When I was in my teens, my grandmother was diagnosed with terminal Cancer and was bound to a wheelchair. I moved in with her to care for her needs. I enjoyed being able to give her comfort. I administered her B-12 injections and her daily medicine, while cooking, cleaning and bathing her. I realized then, that I wanted to become a nurse. I did not have any backing to go to nursing school, so I attained my Registered Medical Assistant and my Registered Phlebotomist licenses. One of my personal achievements was when I took care of a patient who was a paraplegic. I taught her how to use the remote with 2 fingers. She was so ecstatic when she finally was able to do that one thing by herself. It was truly amazing!
