The best part about being a caregiver is assisting clients in being as independent and comfortable as possible. I have a deep respect for the values and character strengths I see in my clients. It is a privilege to take care of them. I enjoy providing direct care, cooking simple nutritious meals, and doing what is needed to maintain their homes.

Ever since freshman year in high school, I have always wanted to do something that related to the medical field. First it was orthopedics and then pharmacy. I did not know that my mind would change to care giver until my junior year. I took a health science technology class starting my junior year. It was a two year class. Junior year was more focused on anatomy and physiology and Senior year we got to decide which path we wanted to go down. I chose the LNA path. I have always wanted to help people and going towards this path seemed like a sure-fire way to get there. I loved doing my clinicals at the two nursing homes near my school. It was an amazing experience. Knowing that I can help someone get through their day a little easier meant the world to me. Almost six years after graduating high school, I am still doing what I love and taking care of the people that need it the most.

Becoming a Caregiver was out of necessity, to fulfill one woman's simple request of not being placed into a nursing home. She had had a challenging childhood: daily nourishment often was tea and bread; coats were used as blankets during the evening. She persevered during her marriage, raising a brood of children while being the dutiful wife. So, when called upon, it was an opportunity to give back. I have found that I have great resolve, have not floundered in my integrity, and have given care with compassion and kindness. In doing so, I have been greatly rewarded.
I have been working in the health care field for over 40 years. I started when I was a teenager working in special needs regional care camps. I have worked with a span of different kinds clients, from special needs clients to Elderly clients. I have worked in camp setting, group home settings as well as personal homes. I also have had clients that have lived in my home and received around the clock care. I have always enjoyed helping others and have been told by many of the families of my clients that they could never have done it with out my help.
My greatest passion is people. Seeing them connect with others and helping them reach their greatest potential whatever season of life they may be experiencing. Family connections are very important to me. Being a mother of five daughters and grandmother to many grandchildren, I see the vital role of family connections, friendships and personal interactions which are needed to create a healthy environment. One special moment I facilitated, was to invite the local editor of the newspaper to interview my current veteran client on his 90th birthday. I had also organized his two best friends who are veterans, and also turning 90 in the same month to attend. It was a privilege to hear their stories and help capture this unique moment.
I love what I do, and I treat my clients with respect and honesty. I care for my elderly clients as if were my own family. I'm great at what I do, from experience with so many different aspects of my career. Started as Lna in 2008 and continued my education to Mna and phlebotomy. I wanted to learn more about certain diseases and what happens to our bodies with age. My curiosity pushed me to learn more and take classes in Alzheimer's research and Dementia. To further understand my clients so I could help them the best way possible. Also to meet there needs. Every person is different and with age is change..its not easy for them I'VE LEARNED TO JOIN THEIR JOURNEY!
