Hello, my full name is Gina Brooke Canada and I have always been reffered to as Brooke. When I was only 15 years of age my grandmother passed away from cancer. I was the only one to take care of her until hospice finally had to take over when she became extremely ill and passed away. She made me promise that I would do my best to go into the nursing feild. But needless to say life got in the way so in 2012 I finally was able to at least get my CNA certificate and my CPR license as well as my First Aid License. I worked in the business world for quite a few years but when my stepmother was diagnosed with cancer I moved in with my father and my angelic stepmother to make sure that I could take care of her for the last 6 months of her life. Once again she as my grandmother had said that nursing was my true calling so those are the steps that I have been able to put towards a nursing career as of today. I love working one on one with patients because every person is different and everyone has different needs. I do my best to treat my clients as well as I would expect a caregiver to treat my own family. I have learned with my experience to pick and choose daily battles by getting to know the clients because with this sort of occupation some things don't have to go strictly on a set schedule if it means upsetting a patient over strictly by the book activities. I would rather see them happy as well as having some choices that they are still able to make for themselves. Everyone at every age still deserves a choice of as much independence as possible. So that is a little bit about myself and I hope to get a chance to show and tell you more. Thank you and have a blessed day. ... more
