I have a somewhat goofy personality, I like to joke around and sometimes be silly, but I'm very good with the elderly. I'm very kind and understanding about them not being able to do things on their own or that they may take a little longer. I don't rush them. And they tend to appreciate that. I decided to be a CNA in 2002 because I was tired of working as a waitress and needed a better paying job to support my children, but I also enjoy being around elderly people and talking to them, learning about their lives, what they did for a living, their families and I LOVE looking at their old pictures and helping them walk down memory lane. I think an achievement I'm proud of is paying 50,000 dollars cash for our house. My husband got a settlement and that's what we did with it. My PERSONAL achievement that I'm proud of is of course my children but also being able to survive the death of my 5 year old daughter and to be able to tell parents how important it is to keep medications locked up. There's a lot of things I'm proud of in my life, way too many to list here.
I am a caring woman who enjoys helping others, that explaining why I became A healthcare worker. To see someone smile from just hearing A few kind words is very gratifying. I have worked very hard to support my four daughters alone. I enjoy learning a lot! I plan on starting school in the near future and I can't wait. I am Very easy to get along with. I appreciate constructive criticisms From co-workers and bosses, also I think good communication Especially in the health care field.
I'm a new member of the Wichita community. My husband and I moved here from the Manhattan area where I worked as a para educator for 9 years. Needing a change, I worked toward my CNA,CMA, and HHA certifications. I have worked in Memory Care, Assisted Living, and Home Care and Hospice all of which I loved. I have an early work experience as an EMT,(no longer lisenced), and years in phlebotomy. I've also worked as a CNA in a surgical center in various areas of the building. I spent 1 1/2 years after we moved here, recovering from shoulder surgery and working in a preschool center while getting situated in our new to us house. We have two daughters, one is married with a 4 yr old and 8 month old and the other is a Jr in college at Bethel. I grew up a farm girl, spent valuable time with my grandparents, and have been involved in many activities myself and with our kids. My family has always come first and I have always worked jobs that would allow me to live and be in their moments as they were and are happening! We are total hands on grandparents to our grandchildren when needed and possible. I love flea markets, refurbishing furniture, I have my own picture painting site, yard sales, shopping, and being in our yard. My heart and soul are extremely down to earth and when I enter a clients home, they are what matters while I am there. Their comfort and happiness with my work, long after I leave, is important to me until I see them again.
I am a very passionate, dedicated, and committed to delivering selfless, purpose-driven service. I believe in servant leadership and making sound decisions in the absence of direction. I want family members to feel like I am an extension of their family, someone they can rely on when most necessary. I was attracted to caregiving by the reward that comes from helping others. Seeing people that were in need for care, when family members simply don't have time, money, or emotional longevity that is required in long-term assisted living and care. I am very proud of raising my two teenage daughters as a single mother, while working multiple jobs. It was very difficult, but highly rewarding seeing them grow, and exhibiting the same work ethic and love I try to possess.
I take care and love my residents/Clients like they are my own family. I became a caregiver because it's always been a passion of mine after I took care of my grandmother until her last days. I am a very trustworthy,Loyal, Prompt & Responsible care giver. Take a chance on me I won't let you down.
I became a CNA cause I like helping the elderly and being their for them. It makes my day when I put a smile on their faces and hearing them say Thank You. When I did HHA, it made me so happy that a couple of clients did not want anyone else but me and that got my self-esteem and pride up so high, because I never thought I was that good, until then and this was just recently, and they would also ask me if I am coming back and I would say yes and they would say that's great cause we like you and you are a great person and it would feel great when their family member's felt the same way. I have been a CNA for 27 years. I have experience in working in a nursing home and doing home health. And I also helped take care of my mother-in-law that had dementia, which was very sad seeing her have that and when she passed away it made want to do home health, so can help people, be their for them like I was for my mother-in-law. I really enjoy working with the elderly, and plus I always thought that if that was my mom and dad that they deserve the best care because that is what I would expect from everyone, no ifs and butts about. I did not work from Aug. 1997 to Feb.2013 as a CNA due to moving to Wichita, and plus since I did not Work as a CNA for awhile thought I would have to take the whole CNA course all over again and there's no way I could afford that, but then found out that I just needed to get reinstated, so I got it reinstated, which I was so grateful.
I became a caregiver because i love working with the edlerly and listening to their stories and so they can have someone to talk to and enjoy being around for companionship. For them to like me too. I love being around the edlerly i would visit my grandparents so i could get to know them and they could know me.
Hello, my name is Sarah Grunwald, and I've been a CNA since 2011. I've worked in both settings as a CNA at an assisted living facility and clients homes. My personality traits as a caregiver are super friendly, I try to get to know and understand a client and their families to provide the best care for a client to keep both family and client at ease. Being a caregiver is something just indented into my DNA. My goal is to give the best care I can give, while maintaining a client's independence so that they may stay in their homes as long as they possibly can. I enjoy caregiving it gives me a sense of accomplishment seeing that clients families are at ease knowing their loved one is being taken care of with the best care given possible.
I have always been a caregiver since I was a little girl. I knew than I wanted to get into the nursing field to do just that , take care of people. I love being able to do for others what they can't do for themselves. Or to be able to assist them to get back to where they can be more independent. I left school at a young age but I went back in Oct of 2013 and by December 2013 I had my diploma. I right away enrolled in college for the C.N.A program and got my certificate in April 2014. I used to do direct care but before I was certified so only cold work for friends or family. Not I am certified and ready to help make a difference. I have no kids so my hours are pretty flexible. hope to meet you soon!!!
