Being a caregiver is such an honor - it's all about putting away your needs to assist others. Knowing that a smile on your face can bring joy and happiness to someone else is priceless. Have been providing home care to seniors for more than 20 years. I have worked as direct pay and through home health agencies. I enjoy helping others to stay in their homes where they are most comfortable. I first became a CNA in 2011 after attending the Ann Rose School of nursing. I shortly after was able to return to work in an office environment, and completed my National Certification as a Medical Assistant. My previous employer was in a doctors office. The position was eliminated due to budget constraints. I have just completed nurse aide training in May of 2019 at the Larchwood Nurse Aide Training Center and obtained CNA re-certification in June of 2019. I am a QMAP and also BLS certified. In 2017 I worked for a wonderful family as a caregiver to their 90 year old father. He and his family would be more than happy to provide a reference. Earlier in 2019 I helped a woman for 2 hours a week who is wheel chair bound, and I know she would be pleased to give a reference as well.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
