About Carl

Having worked in the healthcare field for over 3 years, I knew that my decision in becoming a CNA was the right one. I have a caring, compassionate attitude and have always been a caregiver to family, friends and anyone in need. As a CNA , I find great satisfaction in serving patients/residence/clients with the care giving skills I have learned. My positive attitude, work ethic, dedication and ability to work independent or as a team make me a exceptional CNA. Having been fortunate to work on a Memory Care Unit has given me great insight and knowledge into dementia and the changes , both physical and psychological and the special needs of these people. Challenges are always a new learning process which always betters ones self. I feel having an inherent capability to handle all situations in a professional, calm manner is one of my attributes.
