I've worked as a nurse assistant over 16 yrs caring for disabled, elderly, ill, and mentally challenged clients. I have worked in nursing home, hospital, home care, senior facility, respite care, private duty, direct care service, and hospice care, and trained in massage.
I like to challenge myself as a caregiver with promoting new work skills. My time is giving care to others, that cannot do for themselves. My achievement is to see my three children succeed in the life that values them. For myself, to be recognized for my work performance, that's giving to each individual that has been cared for, show appreciation. I had several resident tell me that I'm wonderful, and I had a tearful moment. It's a blessing to hear positive thinking from a client. I'm a certified assistant living manager, private caregiver, and studied massage technique . Thank You. I have 20yrs experience in caregiver/companion. I started working as a caregiver after my father had a stroke and heart attack and i had no one to help me care for him. After my father passed away, i became committed to helping other family and it became my GOD GIFT to care for my clients with as much of love as it was my own family member. It give me great pleasure taking care of peoples. This is not just a job for me but a blessing!!!

I am a very reliable caregiver with over 15years of experience(the experience sums up my overall performance)
I have patience, very attentive, compassion, dependable and trustworthy... for many years, going back to as young as 8years old I've always had a heart to reach out and help others with greater needs than my own. When I realize just how much my efforts touched hearts and made a difference I made it my duty to continue pushing forth in assisting others with their personal care needs. I've cared for disabled children, childcare license/daycare, nursing homes, special needs facilities, retirement homes, and in home care... I've had many opportunities to redirect my passions/careers and I've found nothing else more heart filling for me than my duties as a caregiver.... I've always been told "any type of work you do, if your heart is into it, that's where you belong" and to sum it all up... I enjoy making a difference for the better in others lives!!! I'm proud to know I'm still accomplishing my mission in seeing to it another life has hope for a greater day! I believe I have good instincts to provide safety, comfort, understanding and I have been professionally trained as a CNA/CHHA. I'm flexible when there are schedule changes. I will treat you with respect and dignity. Mindful of privacy. Conscientious of time management to complete duties. Considerate to know the way you prefer, to have things taken care of, in your daily care needs.
One day, I woke up and had a calling, then I began caring for Developmentally Disabled people. Later on, I met someone who suggested, to obtain a CNA certification, so I can help more people. I experience much gratitude, in helping people in all kinds of circumstances.
I find it interesting with the many opportunities, to enjoy meeting and caring for people, from all walks of life. I can utilize my abilities, skills, observations and responses to assure good quality care for families.
My personal achievement that I'm proud of is becoming a certified Massage Therapist and opening my own business.
