About Donna

I guess I have always been a caregiver. Being the oldest of four I loved helping my mother with my brothers and sister. As I got older I helped take care of my grandma then when my mother got Alzheimer's I was there to help. I love making a difference in someones life. Making new friends and hearing all the stories from the old days. I'm good at helping Seniors that are confused with a situation. I'm very proud of my two kids. My daughter Jessica 30, She works for the Post office and Tutors special needed kids. My son Jay 30, works at a Restaurant and goes to school part time. I have been a caregiver for over 25 years. This past year and a half I have been helping my friend Jenny start her mornings. She is 30 and has Cerebral Palsy. I live in Lake Hughes with my boy friend of 10 years. I belong to our women's Club and we make bed quilts, Lap Blankets and Turtle pillows for THE PAINTED TURTLE. Its a camp for kids that are sick and it was started by actor Paul Newman.

I became a caregiver so that I may help those who may need that help to perform there activities of daily living, as well as to provide great care and companionship. What I like about being a care giver is the ability to enhance a persons day by giving them the best care possible, as well as getting to learn who my patients are through the stories they tell. one personal achievement I am proud of is working to give my children a bright future and doing it alone. My name is Marcy Miller and I am a single parent of 4. I have been a nursing assistant for about 15yrs now. I have worked as a nursing assistant in the comfort of a patients home and in the privacy of their room at a nursing facility. I love caring for others as well as giving them the best possible care.
