I'm a very upfront outgoing person. I've been a Certified Nurse Assistant since I was 18 yrs old. I was helping my Mom out with my Dad during his battle with lung cancer. I enjoyed giving my Dad one on one care. I cared for him while my Mother was at work. Allowing him to be comfortable in his own home. After he passed I went on to take the CNA, CMA, Phlebotomy class at Kilgore College. I enjoyed mostly the one on one time spent with my patients. Getting to know them. I've worked in Long term care facilities. Prisons, Home healths, Assisted living homes. I mostly enjoy going into the homes as a Companion. Just giving somebody the option of staying home. Helping them with all daily living routines. Allowing them to still stay active. Giving them respect, dignity. Also giving them all my attention.
I became a caregiver because I have always enjoyed helping people and find it rewarding. What I like about being a caregiver is knowing that I can make a difference in someone's life and the lasting relationships I build with those I care for. The personal achievement I am proud of allowing this field to inspire me to go back to school as a Medical Assistant to make this my career. Besides currently going to school as a Medical Assistant, I have been a caregiver for those with special needs for ten years. I have an Associates degree in Biology and am a Certified Phlebotomy Technician.
I have trained and worked as a CNA for over 25 years, which includes hospice. My experience far out way my training because of my desire to continually expand my skills and training, which adds to my services rendered to clients. There is no illness or disease I have not worked with. I will be a welcome asset to any client who acquire my services.
Hello! My name is Alicia. I am 30 years old with a wonderful family. I have been doing caregiving since I was 15 years old. I used to help take care of my grandparents and help them with baths. Being a caregiver is something that I am very compassionate about and I enjoy and absolutely love doing. I love the feeling of being able to help others.
I'm a very compassionate person who believes our patients should be treated like we would want our family members taken care of. I came into this field because I love to help people. My future plans I plan on becoming a Registered nurse. I believe I can offer the care someone needs. I don't mind being the ear just to listen when someone needs to talk.
What make me be a great caregiver is the compassion and love that I have for people. What attracted me to being a caregiver was when I worked in the laundry at a nursing home and when I would take the residents their clothes and their call light would be on waiting for someone to help them, but no one would come, I would try and help them. That's when I decided to go get my CNA license. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is listening to my client talk about the good old days and their family and watch their eyes light up and see the smile on their face. The most personal achievement that I'm proud of as a provider is knowing that I was able to give a family member love one the proper care and love that they so deserve.
I have been caring for people for what seems like all my life. Since 11 years old I hehelped take care of my cousin that has arthritis and then again worked for her when we were older. I am sensitive to others needs whether it be physically or emotionally. On a professional level I have 6 years of Home Health and just got certified a Nurse Aide. I have worked for a nursing home in Longview for one year. I love the work I do.
I am originally from New York and am of Italian descent. I am married to a retired U. S. Navy man and therefore have some basic knowledge and appreciation of the military. I have been in the healthcare field for the last 21 years and switched over to Home Health in 2005. I really enjoy helping people with their health needs, especially those who cannot do for themselves, such as the disabled or elderly. Most of my patients have been the elderly suffering from dementia or Alzheimers. However, I have also cared for a couple of centenarians who simply needed companionship and occasional errands done for them. I am a very friendly and outgoing person who is also very neat and clean.
I have an outgoing personality. I smile a lot and like to get others to smile back. I like to talk to patients, get them to tell stories of happy times. I am attentive to a patients needs. I am patient, physically fit and can stay awake as long as needed. I have determination and a don't quit attitude. Two years ago for my 50th Birthday, I hiked 1100 miles on the Appalachian Trail.
