I started out my journey in the healthcare field because of my sick mother. I was amazed at how at ease she was having people come into her home and help her with things so that she could remain at home. I decided then that I wanted to help people be able to stay in their home and live a normal life.
Honestly, I moved in during the last year leading up to my grandfathers death. He had many issues and heath problems and i helped with everything i could. I administered his meds, emptied his stoma for his colostomy, set up his food & water (kangaroo pump). Laundry, and anything else he needed. I recently moved away from my home town (las vegas) and Im missing him so much. I would love to help out a family that needs someone who's been in their shoes & knows the difficulties of finding quality people to look after their loved ones, and i promise you- I am that girl! Thank you
1. What makes me like a great caregiver is that I treat my patient like my own family, I always to my mind that taking my patient is like I'm also taking care of my family 2. I love doing caregiving because it is my passion to take care of them, love them and give them the needs they needed, 3. I enjoyed most being caregiver is that being able to handle the behavior your patient is giving to you and yet you find your self it is very interesting and you still love your patient. It's like loving them with out asking for return to love you back 4. Personal achievement I am proud of is that I was able to stay calm in times of emergency when my patient oxygen sat went down to 52%, when shes having difficulty in breathing, she became cyanotic or become blue and I was doing a back percussion to her, her breathing went back to normal, (Ps. She had most form so I couldn't able to do CPr- that's why back percussion was applied)

I started volunteering at the keep home back in the 90s when my mother was a nurse on the 7th floor and my father worked at the hospital with mentally disabled people. I have been raised around the medical profession all of my life. I enjoy being in this atmosphere because I learn alot from the individuals. I get to know and see allot of great things and learn about the person outside of what they have been diagnosed with medically.
