I am a Certified Nursing Assistant. I have been a CNA for a little over 10yrs now. I started off helping to care for my great grandmother, who suffered from Alzheimers Disease, 15yrs ago and i have been doing it every since. I love being able to help others out and that includes both my patients and their families. I've learned that doing the smallest things for people can make their whole day, sometimes their whole life, better. There id nothing more rewarding to me than knowing I've help to make some one a little more comfortable or I've helped give someone a little piece of mind. I know that aging and disabilities take a huge toll on not just the patient but the families also. I love what i do and it gives me peace of mind, to be able to give others a peace of mind and it makes me happy to know i affect so many peoples lives.
Prior to caregiving, I used to clean homes and businesses. My clients would always tell me there was nobody else that cleaned as detailed as I did. I am familiar with all types of care . My grandfather had dementia and cancer and my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor and 99. My father had cancer and my mother has high blood pressure. My younger sister has diabetes and is insulin-dependent. I have worked with many different diagnosed conditions i'm chronic long-term issues. I truly enjoy providing care from cooking meals and doing laundry to making sure my client has a bath. I also will make sure my client gets to nearby appointments and encourage my client to participate in activities in and outside the home. I have two small and a medium size dogs plus a cat so I am animal friendly. I do not smoke and prefer to work with same or an outside smoker. I have worked as a caregiver and CNA as well as management in homecare and been in the industry for 10 years .
I have tried other lines of work but returned to home heath care cause thats where my heart is and I find it very rewarding and fulfilling . I have many years experience and a heart of gold and many wonderful references from past and present clients. I am licenced, certified and Insured with a recent level 2 background check. I also have a new vehicle.
I'm a non-smoker certified CNA with CPR training, Since I was a teenager I've always enjoyed caring for the elderly as I had to care for some of my own loved ones. I'm a very honest, patient, compassionate, attentive, reliable, and dependable individual with a great sense of humor which allowed me to provide excellent hands on care as well as joyful companionship to your loved one in the comfort of their home while maintaining their independency as long as possible. I'm skilled in- assisting the elderly with activities essential in their daily living, experience with alzheimer's, dementia and combative residents, checking b/p, pulse, respiration, temperatures & other vital signs, hands on experience in assisting residents with toileting, bathing, dressing & oral/personal hygiene care, meal preparation, feeding, medication management, light housekeeping, transportation, errands as well as joyful companionship.
I believe a combination of my 18 years as a caregiver and compassion working with the growing elderly population makes me stand out amongst all the others. My experience growing up on a farm taught me work ethics, customer service, humbleness, and a love for being around and helping people. I fell in love with healthcare and and music, gaining a Bachelor's degree in Music Therapy. My work from there was a mixture of using music as a tool to help others and caregiving as a certified nursing assistant. I am currently certified as a cna and have my cpr certification.
I have been a caregiver for over 17years, I think a good care giver is not made by a license or for what ones learned at school, but what you are inside. It`s in the heart. It`s how much you love caring for others. Being a caregiver is a gift that you make into a profession. I am a caring person and I really love what i do. Please feel free to contact me. Thank you and God bless you.
