About Sailimanuia

Hello my name is Sailimanuia Tafu and i'm Samoan. I'm also known as Birdie. I learned all about caregiving when i cared for my parents. To see them struggle daily not being able to stay independent, helped me to pursue a career in nursing. I became a certified nurse assistant 8 years ago at a nursing home and I loved it. Being a caregiver helped me to reach out and give as much support not only for elderly people but for those who are sick and lonely. Besides caring for loved ones, I love to keep them company and entertain through singing. I'm a team player and dependable. My priorities is to make sure my patients are comfortable and in a safe environment. Their needs are very impotant to me because they are impotant to their families as well. I've experienced diifferent needs from clients because of their situation and to help them to be independent, i know i'm there to assist them. I'm blessed to be a caregiver because I have love and patience for the work I do. It brightens my day to see happiness in my patients face, it shows they are well taken care of.
