Seeing my Grandmother with Alzheimer's made me want to be around her all the time to where i was considered her caregiver. Knowing how much i loved to do the work, I decided to go for my CNA to be more educated in the field, but I can't seem to stay away from caregiving. What i love most about caregiving is putting a smile on my clients face. Making them meals because i know they'll enjoy it, try to give them that sense of humor back and a fulfillment of live they have left. My biggest achievement of all that i am proud to say is the fact i was 9yrs old going to work with my mother in an in home care facility with 6 clients and i always told myself i want to work in a place like this. now 11yrs later i found a job in the same type of environment. My name is Marshanique Johnson. I'm 20 with lots of ambition. I take my work serious because it's all about love in my eyes. i have a soft spot for the ones i take care of because i look at them as they need me and i would want to fulfill their needs and wants, in a professional manor. At the same time make them feel like family because that's the bond that's usually formed.
