I am a very caring, passionate person! The PATIENT ALWAYS COMES FIRST! I have been taking care of patients for 8 years now! I am 61 years old and I am old school! I don't believe in rushing because that is when you make mistakes! Take your time with your patients and care for them like you would want to be cared for when you get older. Or if they were your loved one! Let them know that you can be trusted. Keep them safe and their home safe from falls. Wash their face, comb their hair, brush their teeth, etc....make them feel good and refreshed! Respect their religion and ask questions! Listen to them and pay attention to what they are telling you. Respect them and their home! I love helping others that have a hard time helping themselves. It's rewarding to me and it comes from my HEART! I have helped my whole family who have passed in their home with cancer, heart problems, Parkinson's disease, and not one went to a nursing home! This is why I became a CNA! It gave me such gratitude and made me feel good to see them smile at me everyday for making them feel good! When I walk through a patients front door I walk into Their home! With a smile on my face leaving my problems behind me! It's all about the PATIENT! The Patient Always Comes First!!

I am from Lawrence, KS but currently followed my husband to Seattle for the summer for his architecture internship. I am looking for a part-time or full-time caregiver position during the weekdays. I absolutely love meeting people, learning their stories and spending time with them. I would have to say my strengths are patience, creativity, compassion and flexibility. I am currently a nursing student and have one more year left to complete. Additionally I have my CNA in the state of Kansas. I would love to help YOU out in anyway possible!
Becoming a caregiver has been a great experience for me. I have learned so much from working with seniors and the great stories and life advice I get has been what makes working as a CNA something I love to do. I'm reliable and very hard working, always ready for the day staying positive and having compassion for others. I have been working as a caregiver for 10 years and have worked in skilled nursing homes, rehab, home health and hospice. Able to help with personal hygiene, showers, getting ready in the morning or getting ready for bed. Transferring in and out of w/c, meal preparation, meal setup, medication reminders, transportation for errands or doctor visits. One on one companionship and help with daily needs.
Im experienced i have my cpr first aid insulin trained i can tube feed depending on how the facility likes it done work well with others looking to move my family to texas looking for great job i been working this field for 7 years at the same job i catch on fast and i work my butt off.
I feel as if I am a great comforter, I have good communication skills, I have had a year of experience as a caregiver and all the resident's I have taken care of along the way have made me more experienced and confident about what I do for them, When I was about 13, I had an elderly neighbor/friend that would come over every day for coffee and to talk with the family, well, he started getting older and weaker and I just always wished I could help him but never knew how until I get a wonderful opportunity in High school for CNA class and I loved it so much that I have never thought about having a different job since. What makes it really worth it is knowing that these people I am taking care of, have families whom I am making very happy along with the residents, I love their personalities and different routines, and becoming friends at the end of the day, and last but not least,I am proud of how many "Thank You's" I hear throughout the day because I honestly do my best to make everyone happy, I am happy that I have become skilled in so many ways of being a CNA.
A little bit about me, My name Is Hannah King and I am an ambitious, caring, trustworthy, very optimistic and most of all a dependable person. I am available at whatever hours you may need me. I have experience helping elderly people with Depression, PTSD, Arthritis, and also Fibromyalgia. As a kid I used to go to my grandparents' house every weekend to assist them with whatever housework they might've had. Normally it would include cleaning their house (Dishes, Dusting, Moving larger furniture to vacuum, Etc.) I think that hiring me would give you a weight lifted of your shoulders as I am a great "People person". I am very confident that I will be able to help you with whatever you may need throughout the day and I hope you consider me as a candidate. I have dependable transportation and a very flexible schedule.
I have experience working in the hospital, SNF, and home health setting. I have a passion for helping people reach their highest level of independence and believe in quality care for all my patients. I have been certified in BLS and have two years of experience in caregiving in medication management, transfers, and basic ADL's. My favorite part of being a caregiver is the relationships I build with my patients.
