I am a passionate caregiver who loves the work I do. I started out taking care of my ill grandmother at 17 years old in North Little Rock, Arkansas. I graduated two year ahead of my class at 16 years old in May of 2011. As soon I received my diploma, I quickly enrolled in CNA classes where I soon graduated first in my class in February 2012. I have been in the medical field ever since. My grandmother thankfully recovered fully in good health and since then I have worked in facilities and home health areas. I am an easygoing person with a bubbly personality. I love to make people laugh as well as feel comfort and peace in my presence.
I became a caregiver at the age of 19. I have been employed in nursing home facilities and by individuals (couples). I have cared for my grandparents while they suffered from cardiac issues, dementia, anurisuims, and kidney failure. I have owned and operated a group child care facility while my children were growing up. I have raised three of my own children, a neice, nephew, and two grandchildren. I have worked for over 14 years as our church nursery supervisor. I am fun, energetic, creative, dependable, and resourceful. I have cared for individuals with dementia, Alzheimer's, ALS, HNPP, heart conditions, incontinence, cancer. I am able to assist with personal needs, (dressing, bathing, grooming, toileting, medications, housekeeping, grocery shopping, meal preparation, errands, appointments, yard work, physical and memory exercises), and most of all provide companionship. I feel it is important for individuals to engage in activities (as they are able). I am very resourceful, creative, reliable and dependable. I am trained empathic listening skills, grief, c-pap, bi-pap, cough assist, feeding tube, basic first aid, adult and child/infant CPR certification. I have a clean driving record. Please contact me for additional information.

I have been doing caregiving all of my life, approximately 25 years or so. I started as a Nanny in Greenwich CT. I then had my own son at 25 and wanted to try something new. I worked with the developmentally disabled for a few years and then I had the opportunity to do home health care for a total quadriplegic diagnosed with MS. I loved everything about caring for her. I took care of her for 5 years. I have done home health care ever since. I treat people as well as I would like to be treated. I am skilled, caring,loyal, responsible, and love to laugh!
I've been assisting seniors for as long as I can remember, I began as a volunteer when I was 12 years old, I've held various positions in the Healthcare industry, Activity Director, Social Work, Administrator, but I always find myself pulled back to the hands on care, to me there isn't a more rewarding career.
