About Lakeschia

What makes me a great caregivers / CNA what makes me a great CNA is that I have compassion for all my patients I understand that they need my help I am here to help them I'm also there to put a smile on their face but they really don't understand that they put a smile on my face and make my day good and great all because I can help them with their everyday living and also encourage them to do the most that they could do by guiding them and encourage them and uplift them, and motivate them, strengthen them. Okay I became a CNA because I love helping other people. I'm apart of the reason why they smile and talk to them and let them tell me that stories and they good old days I think that's why I love about being a cna just been there to help. What makes me different from other CNA is that some CNAs do it this for money and not do it for the compassion. I understand my patients understanding that they had lost something that they so used to doing for they self I know how much hurt that must cause also I was working a long term care facility and a patient had cancer and she was dying and she looked at me and said I was her angel and she told me she loved me then I knew right then and there that I was doing my job to the best of my ability because I go beyond for my patients I get my job 100% of me plus more I think you have to understand how people feel when they lost the site vision hearing are they lost the function of doing things on their own it has to be frustrating that's where they count on me at so I can show them and help them and guide them that's why I am different from other CNAs.
