I am searching for 8 hours minimum of work per day or more, flexible to live in also. 1. I became a Certified Nursing Assistant, CPR certified, and HHA, Home Health Aide in the early 90s. I have been certified ever since. I was working as a waiter in a RETIREMENT HOME, when I became involved in care without not knowing it, as I enjoyed helping the residents of the facility. Harriet Brown one of many residents there, thanked me for helping when someone needed it. She stated to me and others that I went the extra mile to assist others. 2. I Love to help people, I like to be in the right place at the right time to assist them. 3. It is very important that I make my clients/patients smile and feel comfortable. 4. I am a good companion, active person, super clean, and willing to help. I am a good listener and like to learn from every experience. We never stop learning, we never know everything. What makes me a good caregiver is that I want to be there when you need me. I have been an RN for some years now. And I am retiring this month.
I have been in the field of Nursing for more than twenty years, caring for all kinds of people, from babies & young children to seniors. Most of my work as a Nurse has been in Home Health and Hospice Care, as well as Alternative Medicine. I love my work and deeply enjoy being of service to others. I am a deeply spiritual person, without being overly religious, and I strive to see the goodness and divinity within each person that I meet. I have had experience in all areas of Nursing, and I am very proficient with my clinical skills. In addition to being a Registered Nurse, I was trained as a Medical Social Worker, and this training has been of great value as I work with people who are ill and facing difficult challenges and I work with the family members as well. I am very aware of the difficulties and challenges that families face when a loved one is ill and disabled, and I make myself available to the those family members as well as the patient, knowing that they are also in need of support and care. I see every day as a special gift, and every moment as an opportunity to serve, to love and to experience the joy and sweetness of this gift we call life, even when life is full of challenges and pain.

I am a great caregiver because I know how to advocate for my patient. I have excellent nursing skills which include patient assessment, critical thinking and compassion. I am always trying to broaden my knowledge base in my field. Currently I am enrolled and have started a Critical Care Course. I enjoy the diversity in nursing , meeting and working with people with various backgrounds and beliefs. I am honest, open and willing to be of service to others. I will be a wonderful asset for any company who is about helping others.
