I am a natural nurturing person. I I decided at a very young age that I wanted to be a nurse or a doctor. I had a grandmother that suffered from Alzheimer's disease for 13 years. Majority of the time that she was sick I cared for her. I always knew I needed to get into the health field because I saw how important it is to have a support system. When you have someone in your family who can no longer take care of themselves it seems to have a ripple effect with everyone surrounding them. At some point we could no longer take care of my grandmother in the house so we had to hire a home health aide and in doing so I really grew to appreciate the nature of the job. You become an extended family member you grow great bonds with your clients or patients and their familes. I love being an aide.

I'm working as a Hha with patient that suffer from traumatic brain injuries. Being a care giver to me is more than just providing care to someone. Caring for another is about showing compassion, respect, being by their side. Patience is also a key in the aspect of taking care of the patient. I always had a passion for taking care of loved ones. I believe that i am very emphatic and compassionate working with people in their home I want to make sure I give the best care that I can in every possible way, by showing compassion and empathy I allow my patient to understand that I'm here for you, also allowing them to know that I care. I am very patient, I been working with patients with traumatic brain injuries for about 2 years and I've learn to cope and understand how they feel. I'm flexible as well. I enjoy being a caregiver the reason for that being is because at the end of the day I know that I've made that patient comfortable/happy even on their worst days. I know that I did the best that I can in helping them. A personal achievement that I really proud of as a caregiver is helping a little girl with cerebral palsy walk. I work with her for about a year, everyday we tackle small milestones until she walk. She still need some assistance but the most impaortant things is that she can do it on her own with her walker.
