Initially, I started as a caregiver for my mother. After being laid off from my job, I was asked to help out in different capacities: transportation, companion and home health for different agencies. What I like most is being able to help someone who requires assistance. A personal achievement I'm most proud of is my clients telling me I'm a good caregiver, because it is not for everyone. After three surgeries, and requiring assistance myself, I can actually see how important it is to have a caregiver who is caring and attuned to the needs of their clients. Bottom line, I treat people the way I want to be treated and everyone does not have that mindset. I develop relationships and treat my clients like family, whereas others approach it as just a job.

I've worked for the same agency for 6 years..I started with only weekends 2 hours a day. That was tough to go see just that one patient but I was determined to prove to my employers that they can assign me more clients, that I'm not your typical CNA, I really care about what I do and the patient/clients that I serve, by being dependable, reliable, taking on assignments nobody else wants, getting to job site on time, assisting and having working knowledge of skills in assisting clients with there special needs/ ADL's and being a great friend or companion to client; someone they can trust and reliey on. Within a month period of time, my employer relized i was that honorable women and assign me to a full time position with a client. I was with her until her passing. The next assignment, was the same. I believe in great quality care. I believe if i had a loved one that was in need of care, i would want someone, like me, who has the patients, time, skills, compassion and commitment to see about my family member and not have to worry or have doubts about if thy have the right person or not to take care of there loved one. So if i was to take this internally and visualize how family members would or could feel, thats why i know i have the confidence and working knowledge within me to do and be the best person i can be, and care for them the same way I would want someone to care for me.
