I enjoy helping people, in almost every way - I decided to pursue a career because I'm forever volunteering among family and friends to help out in some way like take someone grocery shopping, cleaning the house, organizing, talking, exercising/stretching, cooking, small paint jobs, truly almost anything. Everyone needs help sometimes. I'm the person that is always willing to help out. Like family, but not family :)
I am 31 years old and have been a CNA since 2010. I also starting doing home care on top of nursing home care and absolutely love it. I love making people smile and helping them with daily task they need assistance with to make their day go a lot easier and happier. I look at my clients as family. I treat them as i would want my family memeber to be treated.
From the time I was a little girl I always wanted to help people. My mother a sweet warm hearted women was born with a rare condition at the time hyperglycemic leucine sensitive. Which is a rare disorder that caused her to have many seizures due to the fact her body was unable to regulate insulin levels. From this condition she had mental retardation. The medications to help her condition have always been trial and error. I can remember while my father was at work if my mother’s sugar dropped or she began having a seizure knowing to give her orange juice to rise her sugar level.Than when she became stable giving her protein since it’s a long lasting stabilizer. Sometimes if her sugar dropped and wasn’t caught in time she would go into convulsions. I knew to keep her from banging against something and prevent her tough from going back into her throat. Growing up with a mother mentally slower than I was; I was forced to mature fast. I often times was taking care of my mother more than she was taking care of me while my father was gone. But I enjoyed doing it. I love the satisfaction of taking care of others. From then on I always had a high interest in the medical field. I loved science and anatomy. And I often read books on rare conditions such as my mothers. I took my course and become certified as a personal care aide and a home health aide. I have experience taking care of males and females with all different medical problems. I also have administered medication to most o
I have experience with working in a memory care day program for 5 years, while also assisting families with their loved ones at home in evening/weekends. I currently work PT in various long term care rehab settings as a PTA. I'm looking forward to helping out as much as I can on days, weekends or evenings!
What attracted me to be a care giver is when my mum got sick for a long time and that's how I learnt today sickness can knock your door and tomorrow it can knock to someone else . I took care of my mum untill her last moments and she died a happy soul. So when I see a client Inneed I see as my own mother I do it deep inside my heart. It has taught me to care for others , humility , patiences, sympthase with the sick .
I am the oldest of four, and a single mother, caregiving is natural to me. I cared for both of my grandparents in their later years, so they were able to stay at home as long as possible. I find immense joy in spending time caring for others. I have always been good with children and found that I am also gifted in dealing with elderly patients with dementia. I would love to spend my extra time caring for others as I work my way through seminary to become a pastor.
