About Alfreda

I became a caregiver after my brother passed from cancer, the treatment he received in the hospital and the way the nursing staff took care of him had an effect on me and made me want to become a certified nursing assistant to take care of others to give back for my brother, and it's been very rewarding. I love being a can because nothing pleases me more than to please others, I love the fact that I'm close to my patients and their families and they really love and appreciate me for what I do for the ones they love. My accomplishments would be that I enjoy doing what I do, I do my job very well , and I gained much satisfaction just knowing I helped someone and put a smile on their faces and made the families proud of me, I'm very proud of the work I perform. I'm a very compassionate person with a big heart I love to listen to others sometimes its best to listen to what a person has to say and I listen, I'm very caring of others, I respect others as I would want to be respected, I'm a dependable person very responsible and I'm a professional in every way.

They can enjoy, and experience everyday activities and things that matter most in their ever-changing life. 2) My Father needed help beyond what my Mother were physical able to provide for him.

I am honored to be trusted with families loved ones. I treat each client like I would my own my family. I enjoying seeing my client reach even the smallest of goals. I like cheering them on and assisting them to reach for the stars. In 2003 I worked with a male legally blind, and he only crawled. The mother was told he would never walk, and never see. We found a specialist 2 hours away who made a special lens for my buddy and when he put those glasses, he looked at me and said I see you. My buddy also learn learned to walk with assistance. This was one of my biggest accomplishments.
