I am personable and enjoy being a home care provider. I became a caregiver because I wanted to help others by assisting them with their activities of daily living. I enjoyed caring for many seniors over the years and learned quite a lot from them. I believe I'm a great caregiver because I have had extensive training in a skilled nursing facility as well as in many private homes. I also enjoy seeing the difference that I often make in people's lives. I became a nursing assistant back in 1982 and acquired my Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) license at the convalescent hospital where I worked. I then went on to work for several home care agencies and acquired my Certified Home HeaIth Aide (CHHA) license. I have worked as an independent contractor caregiver for years. I am willing to commute for full-time employment. I have great references and will be happy to submit them upon request.
Nursing is a calling for me. Making sure that people receive the best possible care I am able to provide is my most important goal. Safety first always, compassion, dignity, privacy, respect and hope are all important attribute's that I find essential to good nursing care. It is a meaningful gratifying experience to know that I can add to someone's life and possibility bring goodness when health issues can be a challenge and so often depressing. Good nursing requires being completely present while in someone's home or in a facility. My standards are no cell phones while at work, no clock watching, and I always address people with respect by using MR.or Mrs. (last name) until I am encouraged otherwise. Using Mama or Papa and other terms of endearment are not appropriate for me personally in professional healthcare. I use old fashion "yes Mam, yes Sir, no Mam, no Sir. and in an audible understandable language. CNA #00648980
I started as a caregiver ten years ago while looking for care for my father who was a retired Viet Nam Veteran. The agency who came to interview my father to see what his needs were, liked me so much they asked me to work for them. They are contracted through the V A and had lots of veterans who they said would benifit from my care so I stopped workung as a Dental receptionist and joined their team. My father passed away at home 3 years later in hospice during his illness I quit my job to be his caregiver and felt a strong desire to keep his legacy going by continuing to help those that can't help themselves. Just a year ago my husband had a brain aneurysm that caused a stroke where 6 months later he passed away at home in hospice where again I was his caregiver and needed to be there for him til the end. My heart goes out to familues who struggle with the pain of taking care of a loved one who is sick and even more so of a loved one who is in the end stages of life. Not only do I know how they feel but I understand their grief . I want to be the one who can comfort not only the patient but the family as well.
Wanted to find my better traits when I started giving back to others, making myself more aware of the ageing process and what can be expected. I connect with people that I can help out as it opens my eyes and heart in different ways. Listening to others life stories how they may differ through the ages and yet how similar they may be. Gaining not only new personal experiences but friendships from clients to family members.
I am an experienced Care Giver with 5 years of experience. I have recently moved from Australia where I gained all of my care giver and AIN (Assistant in Nursing, equivalent to CNA) education and experience. I have completed Certificates in Aged Care, Home and Community Care, Dementia care, Palliative Care, Medication Administration and Management, Skin and Foot Care, Alcohol and Drugs, first aid certificate and Criminal Background check. As well as having a clear TB test and drug test. I have also supervised the high care dementia wing at the Facility I worked at in Australia. Aged Care and Disability Care is my passion, heart and sole and I have CHOSEN to do this line of work because I believe I was born to do it. I tell people that my method of caring is to care with the absolute greatest love and kindness for the person I assist. I have recently spent 12 months caring for a 47 year old man wit ALS. I gained extensive knowledge of this terrible disease as well constant communication with the Dr's and staff at the Forbes Norris ALS Research Center. I have found there are not many ALS specific caregivers or people who know enough about the disease to properly care for the person. I am that person. Know that if your loved one has ALS I am truly one of the best to care for them. I am a fantastic cook and am more than happy to run errands or complete household chores. I also love dogs and cats. I look forward to assisting your needs and hope I may get to meet you if i am the right candidate for our family.
I enjoy helping people who can no longer fully help themselves. I decided to become a caregiver and then a CNA after I took care of my mother for about a year before she passed away. The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that I can possibly make someone's day better by helping them with the things important in their life.

My name is Nicholas Hernandez and I have been a CNA/Caregiver for 8 years now. I recently moved to Granite Bay from the Bay Area where I worked as a CNA at 2 senior care facilities. I began vocational school in the Bay Area where I recieved my CNA license and started working a day after in Millbrae, CA. I have much experience caring for many people in diverse settings including those with dementia and Alzheimer's. I decided to become a caregiver because I was greatly inspired at a young age. My mother fell very ill when I was 11 and I handled most of her care including feeding, administering meds, ambulation assistance and more. She later passed away and since then I knew assisted living is what I wanted to do. I now live in Granite Bay next to Roseville with my step mother, younger sister and 2 doggies. I am very outgoing and love socializing and meeting new people. I take great pride in what I do for the elderly community and strive to do my best to help others live comfortably. I'm honest and responsible and know I can make a difference in caring for our community. I have a resume handy and professional references available upon request. God bless!
I am a great caregiver because I anticipate what the person I care for needs and will do it for them without having to be asked. I go above and beyond what is expected of me. I am extremely caring and loving towards the people I care for. I am strong and healthy and that makes my clients feel very safe while assisting them with walking or transfers. I love caring for the elderly. They have a world of experience to share.
