1. I became a caregiver because I genuinely enjoy taking care of people. My mother worked as both a cna and medical assistant and she inspired me as we'll. 2. I like being able to make someone feel cared about and not like they're a burden. I also enjoy being able to make someone smile. 3. I am most proud of all the times that my residents tell me how loved and cared for they feel from me. I'm also always being told how patient and kind I am and that makes me proud that I can make a person feel better about their situation. 4. I am a caring individual with a big heart. I stand up for the rights of all my residents and provide the very best care I can. I am a very patient and low key type of person and am able to get along with all types of people, including psych and dementia patients. In my free time I am a painter and I think doing something creative fuels the type of person I am. I think I see the world a little differently because of it. I strongly believe in compassion for others no matter what. I am also a huge lover of animals.
