Looking for a high calibre caregiver with great references? Look no further. I am the one! :-)
I have 15+ years of experience as a certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), highly skilled, great personality, efficient, resourceful and well rounded. Assist with all areas of personal care, help with errands, transport to and from doctors' appointments, prepare meals, do laundry, assist with bathing and toileting, transfers with gait belts and hoyer lifts, etc.
Took care of last patient (bedridden last 4 years) as a live-in CNA for almost 10 years - 2008 through 2017 when she passed away. Available for live-in or hourly. CPR certified. Level ll background check and First Aid training. Hi my name is Hilda. I am a dedicated caring wife and best friend of over 34 years and a mother of 11 wonderful children who 8 of them have grown up to be strong loving adults and my younger three athletic and very involved with sports and art. I have devoted my time on the care nurturing for my family as all mothers do but the past 4 years had an unfortunate turn of events. My husbands knee implant was a failed prosthetic and cause him to become extensively disabled. Since 2012, I gave all my time in my husbands personal care, medical appointments, medication assistance and appointment scheduling. Aside from the basic help, I stood by his side listening to his concerns of pain, his inability to provide as he used to and him feeling lonely and limited. It's one thing to be a wife but it's a whole new ability to have when you need to separate that relationship and be strong for your patient not your husband. This taught me to encourage him, give him small goals with doctors approval that he'd want to reach and also to help him to focus on positive from the experience and not negative setbacks but to hope and push for a brighter day coming. I wasn't prepared for this but I was trained well. My caregiving isn't a job to me, it's the opportunity given to me to help others to improve their lives and assist as much as I can to help ease the pain they suffer in their recovery period. No one expects these setbacks but it doesn't mean they have to deal with it alone, confused, scared or sad. I know this walk because I walked it with him Today after advocating and reaching all options available for his recovery and proper food choices my husband has lost substantial amount of weight and he is almost diabetic free, no more high blood pressure and walks and cares for himself independently. That's the purpose to give - great outcomes for the ill. I am a caregiver for many years now, and i still enjoyed what i does best. I become a caregiver because i love to provide care to those who are not able to take care of themselves as before for whatever reasons. this job is very rewarding it makes you feel good about oneself, the joy and happiness you can bring to others,the smiles and thank you that you often get makes you want to continue,i have always enjoyed helping other so i know this is my calling and i will forever do my very best. When i was about nine years old living with my adoptive mother, in my Native country, I never forget how i had to tidy her, and fix breakfast lunch and snacks every morning before i leave for school, and after returning home i had to wash those dishes and even cook Dinner,because one day she was cooking a pot of soup and it fell and burn her real bad,I remember seeing her in that hospital bed in pain. I'm a honest, empathetic, loving, gently and reliable person,i enjoy meeting and working with people.I pay attention to all details,and like to be sure everything is just right. I am a creative thinker. And like to have an open mind about what will work best, i am efficient and highly organized, which enables me to be as productive as possible on the job.
