For the past decade, I have assisted aging, ill, and terminal friends and family in all aspects of their daily living to improve their quality of life in any reasonable manner possible. Although my certification expired, I have previously been certified in CPR and will re-certify ASAP. I am quite familiar with medication regimes and am experienced in IM injections, such as those required for a diabetic client, but I am not certified for Intravenous Injection. I have inserviced and provided/administered many forms of occupational and physical therapies for clients and am accomplished in therapeutic massage and pedicures. I provide reading services, am an accomplished Scrabble player, enjoy card games, such as Rummy (but no Poker or Bridge...), and play other board games and enjoy jigsaw puzzles, also. While my Bachelor of Arts is in English, with a minor in Speech Communications, much of my professional work has involved in crisis management and governmental processes so I am very familiar with "Red Tape" and dealing with the requirements of documentation for personal/ medical / and social programs. I am also an accomplished cook and homemaker and if I don't know the recipe or the process, I will locate or take direction for the best possible results in the kitchen, bath, and home. Finally, I am an intelligent, caring woman, raised on a farm in South Louisiana, educated and well-read, have a good and practical sense of humor and a well developed caring mentality, steeped in patience and compassion. The things that makes me a great caregiver are my compassion for others, my caring heart, outgoing and friendly personality, I love helping others and seeing people happy, My warm and sincere smile that says you can trust me. and last m perseverance to never give up.
I decided to become a caregiver because my grandmother became ill. The family kept her at home. so everyone had to take turns taking care of her. That showed me that i had to heart and care to do this job, and I loved doing it.
I like being a caregiver because, I love to help people, make them smile, and bring as much joy to their day as I can.
there are so many people out in the world with no family to make them feel loved and let them know there is someone they can depend on when they need help or just someone to listen to them.
I am proud of the day I decided to become a CNA, I think back to my grandmother. Taking care of her let me knew this was something I would love to do. And she encouraged me to do so. She told me that I have the heart for this line of work, and that's the kind of person people like to take care of them, a person that has a heart for the job they do.
