I genuinely care for the wellness of people I am very helpful with all daily activity's of living.

Love helping & caring for others in need , I absolutely love my job being a CNA , license for 11 going on 12 years was a caregiver 3 years before I got my license , very caring and understanding . To me this is not just a job to care for someone you have to have love and compassion and understanding .
I am a nurse aid, about to take my CNA certification test this month. I currently work for Home Instead Senior Care. I provide both personal care and companion care. I have additional training in caring for Alzheimer's and Dementia patients and most of the clients I currently care for have this. I also have additional certifications in Arthritis care, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) care, and shower safety training. I have a bright, bubbly, uplifting personality. I love to care for others. I always treat my patients with the same respect and care that I would my own grandparents. I am willing to work around other's schedules, and can accommodate special and unique needs. I get along well with family members and children, I also love animals. I have my own transportation and am prompt. I always try to go the extra mile to better the lives of others.
Between my work experiences and personal needs of family and friends, I've spent most of my life as a caregiver. I raised two special needs children of my own while attending to my aging parents, including my mother with dementia. Shortly after the passings of my parents, I was the caregiver for my husband who eventually succumbed to COPD. On a volunteer basis, I've provided end-of-life care and post operative assistance. I'm very comfortable working with all ages. Other than heavy physical lifting, I'm capable and enthusiastic about providing care and support to a wide range of potential clients. My first aid and CPR were recently updated and I have extensive recent training in a variety of topics related to care giving, particularly with special needs children.
I was born with an overabundance of empathy, compassion, and a drive to provide love , care, and companionship to the elderly, special needs childen , and animals ! Starting at the age of 10 years old and in elementary school, I volunteered to be in the reach program at Grandin Court Elementary that paired me with special needs students as their " care buddy " I proudly escorted them to their buses and made sure they were belted in securely in their seat, assited with teaching them how to tie their shoe laces , brush their hair , and escorted them to the restroom and back to class as needed. I read them books , I included them in conversation and play time whenever I could. I chose to eat my lunch with the special needs children every day. Even in high school I sought enployment at Elm Park estates retirement home where I prepared and helped with meals , worked with dementia residents ,parkinson, cancer fighters and survivors. I coordinated fun activities like board game day, card games, walks, and even a dance ! After high school, I provided care to an elderly male with stage four colon cancer and dementia for several years until sadly, he passed on. I later assisted a 92 year old hospice patient with spoon feeding after meal prep, errands , medication reminding , light house keeping, laundry, dressing, and bathing, transportation, attending her doctor appointments and reporting her health and status updates to her family. I worked with her for five years when she passed on. I have always been dependable and punctual as I respect others time and know how critical my job is. I treat all as if they were my own mother, father , or child ! I am an advocate for all who cannot speak up for themselves.
I have been a caregiver going on thirteen years! I love every second of it.. It's nothing like seeing the joy on someone's face who is in need of care, or that extra care and support. I enjoy knowing my work is appreciated and it's needed.. I never saw myself in this field as a child. As I proceeded to get older and seeing the old or young in need of help it made my heart ache for them. I just pray that in my golden years I find the same care of joy and compassion the same as I enjoy to give to others..
I take my job seriously and go above and beyond, I love the elderly especially I learn from their wisdom, I have a history of family members that are nurses, I like giving one on one time and my most highest achievement is adding being a phlebotomist to my resume. I'm dependable and flexible, I cook clean bathe meds laundry yard work doctors appt vitals and so much more. I like being a part of the extended family of my patient. Been a cna for 3 decades and I love my career. I have references. I have current cpr ppd test, background check, drug test, I have a current cna license. I have no children and 5 dogs!
I'm grateful to be a caregiver! especially thankful to those who trust me enough to care for their a love one. I have dedicated my time thirteen years now in this field. I wouldn't change it for the world. It brings joy helping others, I use to only want this career to only follow in my family's foot steps. I see now it's for the love, and passion, the joy of helping those who are in need. I pray one day someone will feel the same about me. Im outgoing, compassionate. Patient, and very understanding. I have many many skills I have developed over the years, Hospice, Feeding Tube, Dementia, sundowners, and etc...
I am a nursing student and certified nursing assistant. I used to work at a nursing home and now work at Carilion NRV part time. So if you need someone to be a companion or caregiver part time, I believe that I'm the right choice! I have always loved helping people. I find great joy in being able to assist someone in a task or being able to see a smile on their face. I enjoy getting to know the people that I'm helping take care of.
