I have a bubbly personality. All of my clients absolutely adore me because I communicate with them in terms of what they can do. For example, if a senior client can't walk but is healthy mentally, I tell them that their job is to supervise. I keep it as light and fun as possible in a professional manner. When clients are having a bad day, it's my job to make it better! I love working with seniors and children. I stay in tune to their needs by paying attention and listening. A safe and clean environment is of utmost importance, and I strive to ensure my clients are receiving the best care possible. A \"tailored\" routine, reliable service, good communication, and a good working relationship with the client and family has been the key to my success in this business.
For the past decade, I have assisted aging, ill, and terminal friends and family in all aspects of their daily living to improve their quality of life in any reasonable manner possible. Although my certification expired, I have previously been certified in CPR and will re-certify ASAP. I am quite familiar with medication regimes and am experienced in IM injections, such as those required for a diabetic client, but I am not certified for Intravenous Injection. I have inserviced and provided/administered many forms of occupational and physical therapies for clients and am accomplished in therapeutic massage and pedicures. I provide reading services, am an accomplished Scrabble player, enjoy card games, such as Rummy (but no Poker or Bridge...), and play other board games and enjoy jigsaw puzzles, also. While my Bachelor of Arts is in English, with a minor in Speech Communications, much of my professional work has involved in crisis management and governmental processes so I am very familiar with "Red Tape" and dealing with the requirements of documentation for personal/ medical / and social programs. I am also an accomplished cook and homemaker and if I don't know the recipe or the process, I will locate or take direction for the best possible results in the kitchen, bath, and home. Finally, I am an intelligent, caring woman, raised on a farm in South Louisiana, educated and well-read, have a good and practical sense of humor and a well developed caring mentality, steeped in patience and compassion.
Hi, my name is La Toya and I'm 35 years old. I have 3 years experience as a CNA. The reason I love doing CNA because I care about people who needs care and can't do things on their own. I had to stay home and take care of my mom until she passed away from Alzheimer's disease. That made me love it even more. I love to treat a person like I treated my mom and how they are supposed to be treated. I just enjoy being in the company of people who know they are being treated right with patience, kindness and a lil laughter every now and then. I wouldn't give that opportunity up for nothing in the world seeing a person happy and content.

I became a caregiver because I love helping people. Making life easy and comfortable in your own home. Helping with everyday needs and chores. The thing I love most about being a caregiver is the fact that. Caring for someone other than your self is a blessing. The biggest achievement I am proud of is over coming things in my life. To the point where I want to help others over come things in they life. I'm 39 years old. I have been taking care of other people for over half of my life. I love living I love life and I love helping others live their life to the fullest.
I am a caring and compassionate person. I am patient and kind. I grew up volunteering at the nursing home my mother worked at. I enjoyed getting to know people and hearing their histories. Taking care of my grandmother with Alzheimer's disease taught me patience and sparked an interest in how the mind works. It is vital to know that clients are people trying to have the best quality of life possible. It is a privilege to be the person helping someone to maintain their dignity. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver would be the ability to make the person I take care of feel as independent and happy as possible. To help someone maintain as much function as possible or even improve their daily functioning is an uplifting experience. A personal achievement that I am proud of would be when working with hospice patients, I was able to make their transition comfortable and peaceful. To me, to take care of someone at the end of their life is the greatest privilege of all.
