I am a kind hearted, caring, compassionate, empathetic, hard worker with a great love for for for helping othets. I recieved my CNA Certification in 2003 and began working in Nursing homes caring for residents ambulatory/ non- ambulatory suffering from Alzheimers, Dementia, stroke/heart attack victims, rehabilitation cases and surgery recovery. I assisted w/ incontinence care, bathing, dressing, wheel chair transfers, vitals, feeding, companionship and maintaining an overall healthy environment. 2006 I transitioned into Home Healthcare also assisting w/ all activities of daily living, housekeeping, meal prep., errands, Dr.s appointments and companionship. My most recent experience was as an In Home Private Duty Caregiver for an elderly woman suffering from Congestive Heart Failure. I assisted her with all ADL's as well, wound care (hospital bed sores), wheelchair transfers w/ & w/out lift, meal prep., administered meds/ insulin, bill organization and provided companionship. I continued to work with her, Dr. and nurses through her Hospice Care and was with her up until her passing in late 2012. Although it's difficult to see such wonderful people face challenging times in their lives it is very rewarding to get the opportunity to make a difference providing piece of mind, comfort and having such a positive impact in the lives of those who have lived and accomplished so much and deserve the absolute highest quality of care.
