I am searching for 8 hours minimum of work per day or more, flexible to live in also.
1. I became a Certified Nursing Assistant, CPR certified, and HHA, Home Health Aide in the early 90s. I have been certified ever since. I was working as a waiter in a RETIREMENT HOME, when I became involved in care without not knowing it, as I enjoyed helping the residents of the facility. Harriet Brown one of many residents there, thanked me for helping when someone needed it. She stated to me and others that I went the extra mile to assist others.
2. I Love to help people, I like to be in the right place at the right time to assist them.
3. It is very important that I make my clients/patients smile and feel comfortable.
4. I am a good companion, active person, super clean, and willing to help. I am a good listener and like to learn from every experience. We never stop learning, we never know everything. What makes me a good caregiver is that I want to be there when you need me.
I have been an RN for some years now. And I am retiring this month.
I was a CNA, have my caregiver certificate, CPR and first aide, fingerprint clearance card, an up to date on my TB. I have been in this line of buisness for over 20 years. I have worked with quads, paraplegics, elderly, children, dementia, cancer patient, burn victims, behaviral patients, sun downers, bed bound, Parkinson's, etc. I can use a hoyer, stand by assist, pivot transfer. Wherever I worked I was always asked to lift the heaviest. They say that when I do it, it looks easy. I tell them it is just how you use your body. I have done companionship, errands, personal care, wound care, housekeeping, etc. I have worked in hospitals, nursing homes, day care for the elderly, assisted living and my favorite is home care. I have worked all kinds of shifts. I'm reliable and trustworthy. Thanks in advance.
I get along well with people. I'm a very compassionate person. I like to make people laugh. I always go above and beyond of what is asked for. 2 families I have been with for 2 and a half years now!! There are caregivers and there is caregivers with a heart. I consider I'm the second one.
I'm always up to date on cpr and first aide and my TB. Companion, cooking, errands, light housekeeping, meds reminder, dressing, assist toileting, communication, grooming, showering, personal care
