Became a caregiver to care for my Father in Law, Hospice trained me and he originally stayed in my home 5 months before passing at 92 years old. Since that time I've stayed with individuals and couples in different settings with different medical conditions. I am Good hearted, happy Christian woman; enjoy helping others-giving. Very sociable, kind, honest , trustworthy, dependable and caring. Love reading & cooking, If I can make a difference in the life of a loved one, then I am fulfilled.
I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant with the State of North Carolina for 9 years. My certification is current. I am also BLS/CPR certified which is also current. I have worked in long term care settings as well as assisted living. I am very passionate about what I do. I love helping people and taking care of them when they can no longer care for themselves. I am compassionate and empathetic. I have a heart for nursing.
I am a dependable, healthy, hard-working individual. In addition I have more than twelve years of healthcare experience - in home care and in a hospital. I am interested in focusing on home care as I find the one-on-one relationship more personal and rewarding and have the skills and temperament to do the work. The accomplishment I am proudest of is having owned and operated a successful cafe/coffee shop.
I have been told I am very easy to talk to. I love helping others and have always wanted to work in the health care field. I enjoy being able to help those in need. It makes me proud to know that I may have changed someone's life even if it's just a little. I am constantly praised and thanked for the work that I do and it makes me feel good and let's me know I have chosen the right profession. A personal achievement I am proud of is having my children. They keep me grounded and I love that they see me as an example and are learning to help and love others as I do.
I have been a caregiver since I was in my youth by taking care of my paternal grandmother and all her needs. Then I took care of my maternal grandmother on and off for about 25 yrs. I took care of my late husband who had cancer for 7 yrs and then my father who had dementia after a stroke for about 7 yrs between my sister and I. This was not a fulltime 24/7 situation but took up a lot of time out of my day. Then I took care of my newborn grandson for 2 years as my daughter was not well. After that my mom had several surgerys and had radiation. I have been staying with a 90 yr old woman who is an old friend here in Forest City but she has new help now. I guess it is in my genes to do this. I gives me satisfaction to know that I have helped someone to stay as independent as possible while helping them through their day. I want to get my CNA license so I can stay in this career. As for a personal achievement I am proud of is that I worked for a motivational speaker who spoke about positive thinking and follow your dreams and he taught me a lot about life and how to enjoy every moment. I look forward to each caregiving position that comes my way and doing my best to make a difference in that persons life. I am able to travel up to an hour one way for any position as that is the time I listen to music and tapes in my car.
I currently work in an assisted living facility as the lead Medication Technician on the memory care unit. I administer medications, give insulin shots, take vitals, and keep narcotics records up to DHEC standards. I have a lot of experience working with Alzheimer's, dementia, traumatic brain injuries, etc. I'm finding that my work is becoming a bit too stressful with school. I'd love to find a job caring for just one or two elderly adults. I enjoy making crafts, cooking healthy meals, and being outdoors. I love gardening and being and being around animals. I also have experience in the activities department.
I have a very open personality to people of all kinds. I do not discriminate or judge based on someone's past or present. What attracted me to being a caregiver of sorts, is caring for my father when he was dying with stage 4 lung cancer. After the treatments stopped he declined rapidly and I was at his bedside 24/7 delivering medications every 3 hours and bathing, changing, cleaning, administering as much fluids as he could take and attempting to have him eat. As well as many hugs, kisses and love from his little girl. Helping him in his degrading state is what is helping me cope with his passing. If I could give back to people who don't have family or loved ones such as a daughter to do what I did for my father I would love to provide that to someone. It would make me feel like I was in this area of work for the right reasons. I enjoy being able to be a companion to someone who is lonely because I certainly couldn't fathom having no one and being elderly. I am proud of the fact that I stayed by my fathers side until the end no matter how heart breaking it was to watch him lay there like that. In the end I know I did the right thing and that feeling beats anything else I've ever experienced. Humbling to say the least.
