I became a caregiver because when I was in my early teens my grandmother suffered 2 severe strokes leaving her entire left-side of her body paralyzed. for the first year and a half i volunteered to take care of her bathing her, transferring her in a hoyer lift with the assistance of family members later on in my teen years when i was old enough i took on trainings and volunteered at L & M Hospital in New London, transporting patients. Therefore from me doing the care for my grandmother made me realize how great it would be for me to pursue a career in healthcare. Helping other families like my own. I en joy making family's feel confident that their loved ones are being taken care of in the best quality of love and care. One of my favorite things I've experienced in being a CNA is when i sit down and talk to my elders. Hearing how they feel and ensuring them that i am someone they can count on. Working in different medical environments, Fast- paced or even slow paced i have always had Elders as well as their family members acknowledging how different i am and how grateful they are to have me. Also the fact that people see the hard work and effort you put in to make people happy, Which is a great feeling being appreciated. A personal achievement that i am proud of is earning my CNA certification. I feel that was one of the greatest things i have done. Currently i am a student at Three Rivers Community College, Continuing my healthcare career journey in changing lives. ... more
