My two passions in life have always been children and the elderly. After teaching, I've always wanted to spend more time with the elderly & being a caregiver/ companion affords me this opportunity . I have a CPR/ Basic First Aid certificate. I was a CNA in a Nursing Home for 8 yrs, before my teaching career even started. I've been working as a caregiver/companion for the past 4 years. I have a very outgoing personality. I am caring, dependable, flexible, and compassionate. The main reason that I really enjoy doing this job is because it allows the elderly to stay at home and be in their own environment. I feel that this makes a more positive impact on their whole being, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, and/ or psychological. I want to try and make their last days as happy as I can for them.
