Hi I've bin providing health care for the elderly for many years now. I enjoy spending time attending to there needs because i learn hands on and listen to stories about the way things were done when they were once young and full of bounce.In settings ware there no cell phones and no air conditioners in cars. Ware you had to walk for miles to get from point A to point B. Ware no one would give it a second thought about borrowing a cup of sugar from your next door neighbor.A place in time ware the milk man brought your milk to your front door.This gives me a sense of accomplishment to know this person might of fought for my country, for my freedom. This person is someone's son, someone's husband.Someone's best friend and now it's the time to give the respect and care for there needs no matter what the case.That most of our elderly yesterday paved the way for all of us to today.
I consider myself a great caregiver because I am very caring, patient, responsible and a very strong person. I decided to become a caregiver because I have always wanted to help others. I feel joy when I care for others, it makes me feel good that I'm helping others or assisting or helping care for others.
I became a caregiver because i love helping people and seeing people smile. I love my job for one reason only my residents. They make my day if even if i am having a bad. Seeing them happy because i helped them out with their ADL's. My personal achievement is actual being a cna and being a mom all at one time. I personally will do the best i can to help someone who needs help.
I became a caregiver because I truly enjoy caring for others. I started out as a feeder when I was 16 years old, working at a nursing home where my dad worked part time. My mother and father Daniel taught me alot about loving people, respecting and caring for them. My dad would explain things to me like don't feed the patient so fast that they choke and don't walk away from them,claiming he or she did not want to eat because they were eating too slowly. To this day I've seen workers feed patients too much too fast because they don't want to take the time they need. I immediately speak about it if I see that type of behavior anywhere. The elderly are precious and at times vulnerable from perhaps being in a weakened state at times or constantly. Sometimes they can feel alone in their dilemma. I'm a caregiver because I love to make a difference in the lives of people I care for and grow to love. When they can't get out in the sunshine I want to bring the sunshine to them. It's hard for me to speak about something I'm proud of. The only thing I can say is that I keep a thankful heart. I'm a "funloving" and peaceful person. I have a BS degree in Education and Psych from SUNY Old Westbury and attended RN school at Nassau. I pursued paralegal studies at Marist College and enjoy blending nursing and law together in the capacity of doing nurse-paralegal contract work. I'm a CNA, EMT-D and phlebotomist as well. I'm definitely an upbeat person and I love learning.
