I helped take care of my grand mother when I was in high school, it was from that I got the passion of caregiving. The thing I like about caregiving is, meeting new people and providing caregiving services that they can no longer do for themselves. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. Because of the love I have for caregiving I went to school got my CNA and later became a LVN.I have been a caregiver for 9years, I have worked in nursing home and private duties. I will be very grateful if I get the chance to care for your loved one.
I feel I was blessed with the caregiving mentality at a very early age. I have an aunt who is only 5 years older than me and she has Cerebral Palsy. We are very close and were inseparable as children, I did all of her daily needs dressing, bathing, transferring out of bed and to bathroom without being asked. I saw she needed help and I just jumped in and did it. Years later as an adult I went on to be a CNA and I did this work CNA, home health & hospice for 10 years until I started raising my 5 children then I stepped back because I felt I couldn't give my full dedication that a person or people need if my children needed me. Now my children are older and I am coming back into the medical field eager and ready to give wholeheartedly. I went back to school and obtained my LVN license and I'm taking an online course to get my BSN and RN. I am bonded as well. I take caring for others very seriously. It is my passion to help others in any way that I can.
I'm a outstanding , loving and caring Nurse and I have been in the Health care field for 11 years and a Nurse going on 4 years. I started out as a caregiver then I went to school for CNA ,Medication aide and Nursing school I am a LVN. I go above and beyond for any patient/residents I have been responsible for. It makes me feel good to know I have helped someone who needs help even if it's simply getting a cup of ice water. Although I am a nurse I would still love to do one on one care for a patient.A personal achievement that I am proud of is completing nursing school!
I take pride in what I do. Working with people from all walks of life is something i enjoy. I take great care of not only my family but others as well. I have wanted to be a nurse since I was 15 and I have made that dream come true. I still have a ways to go but I want to get experience anywhere I can and in all forms. I enjoy listening to stories of the past and assisting with making new memories. I understand families cannot always stay with their loved ones 24/7 so I would like to lend a hand or two. I am very patient with people and do not rush them; I try to let them continue to do what they can and not feel helpless.
Becoming a caregiver was my natural calling. I Became a CNA in 2010 to assist those who are not able to help themselves.

I am patient, caring, honest, dependable, and loyal. I am looking into furthering my education in the near future and am seeking employment that is flexible with my schedule with children and school.

I became a caregiver because I am compassionate and honest trustworthy and joyful to be able to help someone achieve their goal in life and to be able to live independently in their home. I feel that everyone has a purpose in life and this is my calling to help others that can't help themselves and to give my gifts and talents I have .

I enjoy the opportunity to uplift the spirit of the elder by giving them my care and love. I have a knack for making sunshine come in where there are aches and pains from becoming a senior. I understand seniors need companionship and someone who cares and can assistance them with their everyday tasks. Since I'm a nurse, I speak the language and my goal is to make this time of their lives as comfortable as possible.
I have been an LVN for 8 years, and I have worked with Alzheimer's and dementia , long-term and short-term, hospice and respite patients. Before I was a nurse I was a CNA for over 10 years. I am a caregiver because I want to pay forward the care that my mum received when she was ill.
