About Armando

I believe what makes me a great caregiver is that I take care of all my patients as if they were my own family and make sure they are comfortable and most importantly I listen to their needs. I first became interested in health care when my mother was ill and needed care herself and realized that I had a real passion for helping others. I enjoy knowing that the family can be at ease knowing I'm there taking care of their loved ones. At Long Beach Memorial I was know as the "sitter whisper" because whenever they had a difficult patient they would alway assign me that patient and by the end of the day the patient would no longer require restraints or was completely compliant and friendly. They always ask what was my secret and I would say I simply listen to what their needs are.

When I was a teenager, I provided care for my uncle when he was really sick and bedridden. I was on vacation and decided to be with him instead. He improved after a couple of months and I helped him with transferring, feeding, comfort, toileting and grooming. I really enjoyed assisting him and knew I wanted to become a caregiver or a nurse. I really love providing for the needs of my patients, improving their care and giving back to the patients and families. Sometimes the joy you see in their faces after a job, and the smile and thank you makes all the hard work worth your time. During my job, and past experience, I have assisted coworkers to help patients that needed extensive help such as transferring, toileting, grooming and companionship. I am a reliable person, friendly, organized, patient, hard working, strong, and flexible. I love helping others and always have this smile on my face that gives hope and happiness to others. I am highly talented as a nursing aide with a lot of experience in performing work caring for residents. I am bilingual in French and English; have excellent interpersonal communication skills, am compassionate and technically skilled in attending to patients. I am adept to helping patients in diverse healthcare settings. I am a certified nursing assistant with experience working with the elderly and adults. Nursing professional with 5+ years extensive experience.
