I was raised in a family of all nurses. I had a strong interest in helping others so I took the CNA course. I have been a CNA and have been actively working as a CNA since 2009. I have worked in all different types of settings, such as hospitals. nursing homes, private care duties, group homes, and home care. I love to give back to people that are in need of help. I love it sit and talk with people. I love what I do because it gives back to the community especially the elderly that need the extra help and have worked hard their whole lives. I'm recently married to my best friend. I was born and raised in Aroostook County, Maine until almost 3 years ago I relocated to southern maine for work reasons and of course to be with my now husband. I have an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. Before I was a CNA I was a waitress for almost 5 years. I have great customer service skills. I enjoy reading, learning new things, and being outdoors. I love any outdoors activity.
I am deeply committed to treating all of my clients and families with dignity and respect. My goal is to win the trust , and help alleviate any embarrassment or anxiety when needing assistance with bathing, toileting, grooming, or other personal care. I strive to make a difference in the lives of my clients. I am very out going, friendly, honest , and dependable.
I am a very compassionate person with a drive to make everyone smile and feel cared for! I first started as a caregiver back in 2009 and fell in love with being able to help people. I then developed my career into working with adults and children with developmental disabilities and behavioral disorders. I am certified as both a DSP and BHP. I have gotten my certifications in CPR/First Aid and also am certified as a CRMA. I constantly am wanting to learn more and better myself to help others. Some traits I feel make me a great caregiver are that I'm kind, trustworthy, reliable, patient, caring, and pretty positive! I like to see the best in any situation and learn from troubled ones.
I first started caregiving when I was 17. My first job was for glorias helping hands. At first i wasnt sure about how i felt about the type of work. I didnt have much experience as to what i was doing. I took some classes and got my rcs1 and crma first. Rcs1 is a residential care specialist and a CRMA is a certified residential medical assistant. As i learned more and worked more I realized that is was my passion to help others who may need some assistance in things they can no longer do. Honestly u really do have to have a passion for this type of work because u never know what could happen or what situation u may end up in. And some of the disabilities, and some health issues can be challenging. Ive been very lucky to continue and have worked and learned various disabilities, as well as illnesses. Today i have my rcs1, pss,cna, and also insulin certified, cpr certified, and first aid certified. I love knowing that I'm making a difference and im helping and am there for someone who needs some support and help in their life.
When I look back on my 15 years of working as a Licensed nurses assistant I like to think about the people that made me who I am, with each senior I helped or assisted I learned something new, I learned about my self as well, I have a lot of compassion for seniors because of my own grandparents who I loved more then life it self.I treat people they way I wanted my own family to be treated. I enjoy home care because you get to know people, seniors love to talk about their life stories and I enjoy listing to them.It was one of the main reasons for me going into home care because I love to hear about the old days of long ago, and I love being around the elderly because they have a lot more to say that what people think, I like being around people who are nice funny and just good people.
I possess 20 years of Direct Support and thoroughly enjoyed that position as it afforded me the opportunity to put my caregiving and compassion into motion. I became a caregiver because of the enjoyment I get from helping others. Patience and understanding are high on my priority list as well as punctuality and being a Team Player. My invaluable experience is one of my strongest assets. I especially enjoyed being a part of the Quality Assurance Team because it afforded me the opportunity to learn and put my knowledge into practice to ensure excellent quality of life for this population
I have been taking care of people all my life! I started out at 16 years old as a nurses aide and worked my way up to an RN while raising my family. I have experience with children, disabled children and adults, geriatrics and hospice. My belief is the patient/clients needs come first. I am open and honest . I stay calm during a crisis and maintain my patient/clients dignity at all times.
What makes me a great caregiver is my many years of experience, I have been a nurses aid for 30 years. I have worked in Hospitals, Rehabs, Nursing facilities, and I have done private duties. I have also worked as an office manager at a Boarding House and worked with the Homeless. I became a caregiver because I was brought up by a caring mother that has always found satisfaction in helping those less fortunate than herself, I truly believe in giving back the same love, and understanding I was raised on. I have Bachelors Degree in Science, I specialized in Addiction. I hope to become a counselor some day to help those to have a better understanding of themselves.
