Hello, My name is Christina. I've been a caregiver for just over 10 years now. I love my job. I love getting to know someone on a very personal level and trying to make life alittle easier, if only for a little while. I've always wanted to work in the medical field. After getting some wisdom from some family that had been in it for many years, I decided to start with my Certification for nursing assistance first. I've done facility and private care for many years each and love the impact that I have had and equally received from my patients. I've done almost every skill that you can think of, from driving to doctors apt. to staying over night for end of care, and everything in between. One of the things Im most proud of, in regards to caregiving is becoming 'part of the family'. I love that I can give the family members a sense of security knowing that I am there for thier loved ones.

I have about a year left before I am a registered nurse, I'm 20 years old, and I decided I wanted to work in healthcare in high school and have been a CNA ever since! I prefer in home care because I find it easier to work with my school schedule, and i prefer the one on one time with my patient!
I'm very passionate and dedicated. I enjoy taking care of others. It's not only a job but it's a job I can be proud of at the end of the day. If I can help just one person I feel like I've accomplished something good. I like listening to their stories. I might be there to help them but at the same time these cars clients have taught me something in return.
Hello! My name is Katie and I have been working in the Medical field for over 20 years. I have experience working with patient's that have Alzheimer's, mental illness and intellectual disabilities. I have worked as a CNA in skilled care, long term care, assisted living and patients in the Alzheimer's unit. My passion is to help others and to bring a smile to their faces. I am blessed to have a career in the health care field and a job I love!
I first became interested in working with the elderly in high school. I have worked in care facilities as well as in client homes. Personally I enjoy working in the homes more allowing the person to stay in their home versus going to a facility. The smiles on the clients face is priceless and it makes what ever chore or task worth doing. I have always went the extra mile for the client even if it meant I wouldnt be paid.
I am 21 years old, I am currently out of school on winter break. I was at Kirkwood Community College for 2 years, I finished most of my prerequisites, now I am back in the Quad Cities, to get a lot more experience until I'm back at Black Hawk in the fall! I have been working with the elderly since I was 16, I have worked in assisted living/and nursing homes but I'm home care is my favorite. I like to be in their home, where they feel happy. So they can feel comfortable at all times. I like to do things that they would like to do, ( nails, shopping, eating, sewing, talking,bingo,puzzles,music, hair salon etc. The little that they might think they can't do anymore. I make sure that they are having fun! And for the ones who can't get out, I do activities in home to.
I think what makes me a great caregiver is that i'm caring, honest, trustworthy and dependable. I'm also a very hardworker. Through my years of job hunting I have worked in a variety of fields such as, janitorial, retail, food and then I worked in a retirement home for a year. Now I'm in the dsp field for coming up on a year and I love it. What attracted me to being a caregiver is when I was in an abusive job, I looked and looked for jobs and finally I came upon dsp work, I started not long after and realized that I loved it. I also have always loved helping people and caring for them. I enjoy mostly the smiles I cause, knowing that they can't help themselves or do it all alone and I can help, that's amazing. One of my personal achievements I've conquered is my health/mental health. I've overcome a not that great health history. As for achievements I would have to say the fact I got my cpr/aed certificate and that I've been working on my medication management certificate through the state of iowa. I would love a chance to be part of a family and to help. I've become very interested in being a personal caregiver but also very open to group homes to. (As that's what I do now aside from hourlys) I hope to hear from you and hope to meet/work with someone great!(:
