I became a caregiver because my Mom's sister was a nurse and her husband was a Doctor. I helped out at my auncle's business by scorting clients in and out of his office. I think that I m a great caregiver because I m cheerful, honest, trustworthy, hardworking. Later on I helped to take care of my grandma and elderly aunt in their last days of life. I like being a caregiver when I see the difference that I make on them. I like to encourage them to get better, walk, eat, and have clean habits, and deal a normal life. A personal achievement I m proud about is that 95% of my clients like my work. I also like to mention that I worked for an MD until the last day of his life and I worked for him close to 2 yrs. Let me tell you something about me, I was born in Mexico city and now I m American citizen. I m bilingual in Spanish. I ve been doing CNA/CHHA for 20 yrs, worked for Long Beach memorial hospital for 16 yrs. I m a CNA/CHHA and I also have a Bachelor Degree, I got my Diplomas in the USA. I m a positive person and I go to the gym. I like to keep my clients happy and I do drive and have several references for their peace of mind.
