Approximately 12 years ago, I became my mother's Caregiver after she came home from Rehab for a major stroke. I realized how rewarding it was to feel the satisfaction of really helping someone. In the past 9 years, I have worked as a Home Health Aide and CNA, providing many services to families and their loved ones, including (but not limited to) companionship, transportation, meals, light housekeeping, pericare, input/output, taking and recording vitals, catheter care, colostomy care, medication reminders, assistance with bathing, showers, getting dressed, and oxygen maintenance. My special focus has been with Alzheimer's and Dementia care. I am a CNA and certified in CPR and First Aid. As a Christian CNA, your loved ones peace of mind, comfort and health is my priority. Taking care of others has always been a passion of mine, from family to friends. Becoming a nurse 14 years ago, gave me the fuel to be able to bring quality care, companionship, and helping patients become great advocate for their health any many ways. I dedicated myself to private duty several years ago, after my clients passed on, I thought I wanted to be back in the field again. I miss it, I want to be able to know that my one on one care is not being taken for granted and that the ones that I care for know that their concerns, mental, emotional, and physical status is priority, along with giving their family a sense of knowing that they made the right decision allowing me to care for their loved one. I'm a compassionate caregiver, friendly, reliable, flexible, patient, and trustworthy, with high sensativity and empathy for others.
I love providing help to those who need it, or can't no longer provide for them self, but that's just my giving nature, and my nurturing desire to help those in need, and provide safety and emotional needs to my clients.
Something I like about being a caregiver is that I take pride in what I do. I enjoy working and providing care on one on one with someone and developing a relationship with my client, by conversing, and participating in my clients daily activities. I just love making a different in someone's life. I feel proud of myself when my clients say "I'm the best caregiver they ever had." What makes me a great caregiver is my heart and passion and patience to want to help people that are sick or may not necessarily be able to do everything thereself and need a helping hand. I'm very nurturing, reliable, and a responsible caregiver and I love what I do and love having the ability to help others. I am a licensed stna certified in CPR and first aid as well have over 10+ years of experience caring for individuals with disabilities, seniors, children with disabilities and also catheter care, j-tube/g-tube care, als,cancer recipients, cerbal palsey, medicine administration/reminders, incontinent care and Hospitalization.
