Hi, my name is La Toya and I'm 35 years old. I have 3 years experience as a CNA. The reason I love doing CNA because I care about people who needs care and can't do things on their own. I had to stay home and take care of my mom until she passed away from Alzheimer's disease. That made me love it even more. I love to treat a person like I treated my mom and how they are supposed to be treated. I just enjoy being in the company of people who know they are being treated right with patience, kindness and a lil laughter every now and then. I wouldn't give that opportunity up for nothing in the world seeing a person happy and content.

My mother was a dialysis patient, and an amputee, I went to school in order to be able to take care of her. Before I finish the program, my mother passed away. I knew that there were other elderly patients that needed to be taken care of. I treat every one as if they were my mother, or father. I love taking care of people. I truly believe that being a care giver/certified nursing assistant is my true calling. I believe that my greatest achievement is being love by my patients, and loving them in return. I am 59 years old, I have worked in nursing homes for 14 years, I have also done private duty. I have done both. Right now I want to be able to take care of only one patient at a time.
