I had an experience as a caregiver for an in-home hospice client that completely changed the direction of my life. The assignment only lasted about a week. But it set me on the path to care-giving as a profession. I'm now proud to be a California registered Certified Nurse Assistant, eager to put what I've learned in service to the elderly in my community. I have a free-flowing affinity for this kind of work... patience, compassion, empathy, honesty and a sincere desire to make life better for those I serve, as well as the knowledge and skill needed to do the job. There's something magical about conn ecting so personally with another human being in a way that has them appreciating your being there. It's this aspect that, I think, makes being a caregiver the best job in the world. As a former high school teacher of ED (Emotionally Disturbed) kids, I found the above attributes essential in getting my students to trust me and buy into the learning process. I'm not a great multi-tasker. So I like the idea of focusing on one client at time, concentrating my energy and efforts. My ideal job would be live-in four, sometimes five days a week, 2 or 3 clients who are "good people", while earning an excellent living wage. ... more
