My name is Tieshikia Kennedy , I am 28 years of age. I love the caregiving field because I love to make my elders still feel like they still have a reason to live. I love doing activity with my patients taking them outside for walks playing games to keep their memory sharp. I also love for my patient and there family to build trust and companion with me because I really love what I do and that's to make my patient as comfortable and happy as I can.
I decided to become a caregiver about 8 years ago while caring for my 86 year old father. He had several medical issuses some include... COPD, seizures, stoke dementia etc. After his passing i realize how important it was to able to care for those who can not care for themselves. I also realize we may all be face with the need of someone to assist us with ADLs, errands and so forth one day. It brings me joy knowing i've helped someone continue to enjoy a quality life despite their limitation. I'm recently in the process of furthing my career in nursing. I'm currently enrolled in school for CNA/GNA which I'm proud of doing for myself. Iam a easy-going, compassionate, funloving a little quite at times self motivated and serious minded female. My passion is to help others make the most out of their life
I'm a 39 yr old mother of 4 children, grandmother to 1 granddaughter. I like being a caregiver because I like being able to help those in need, whether it's physically or mentally. A personal achievement I'm proud of is being able to fill an empty space in my residents life on a daily basis even if it's just helping them pick up something off the floor or just being that extra ear they need to vent when they don't have anyone else. That really makes my day.
I became a caregiver because I believe it is in my nature and I am compassionate about helping others. I like being a caregiver because no matter how hard I may work or how my day is going, it doesn't feel like work. I would like to help others by doing what I like. I am a mother of four, very energetic and friendly. I recently left my position full time for a major dialysis company in downtown Baltimore and have been in healthcare for a while and started working for Catholic Charities in May 2017, part time on the weekends. I am hoping to start nursing school fall 2017 and would prefer to work overnight Monday thru Wednesday or Thursday but I have open availability and flexibility with my schedule. My personal achievements that I'm honestly most proud of are my children. I am a Certified Nursing Assitant and Cettified Medication Technician through the Maryland Board of Nursing. I am also CPR and First Aid certified.
What makes me a great caregiver is that I am very enthusiastic to help, very sweet loving kind compassionate. I've had family members on hospice before and I feel as though they weren't treated as good as I could have treated them if I was old enough to take part in that position. So my life goal is to always feel and give the feelin i've had family members I have been on hospice and I feel as though they weren't treated as good as I could have treated them if I was old enough to take part in that position. So my life goal is to always feel and give the feeling I am a part of your family and you are a part of mine. What attracted me to becoming a caretaker is as I've said a couple of my family members have been on hospice and in nursing homes and I just feel like I could've done a much better try at helping them and making them the most comfortable in the positions they were in. I enjoy loving people and talking to people I enjoy making conversation with my Residence, I like getting to know you as much as I possibly can. I'm a very loving Christian who knows how to treat someone how their family members would love them to be treated. My achievement in goal in life is to become a doctor's assistant. And starting as a caretaker to a CNA two LPNs to a registered nurse to a doctors assistant is my goal in life
