Hi, my name is Lacole Dotson i an 43 years of age I have 20 years experience in Home Health Care and as a Personal Assistant i have experiences in going into the client home to perform duties such as light house keeping, cooking, laundry, outtings, shopping, doctors appointments, wheelchair assist, lifting, bed bound clients, medicine reminder or assist and more. I love being a care give i love helping other and putting a smile on thier face. Thank you I became a Certified Nurse Assistant, because I was fascinated by the opportunity to help others in need. I particularly enjoy caring for individuals in the comforts of their home. I have been a CNA since 1997, working in hospitals, home health, mental health, and nursing homes. I have always went above and beyond my job description. I take great pride in my work and give my clients the best quality of life to the best of my ability. I possess a vast amount of experience, and have always strived to perfect my profession. Therefore always taking opportunities to learn and become knowledgeable of new procedures, etc. I have always made it a priority to be knowledgeable, and able to perform duties that over exceed my credentials. Whether those procedures require the supervision of a higher authority, I'm always fascinated to perform them when given the opportunity. I'm always trying to take my job title, and credentials to the highest level of my potential and knowledge. Therefore will make it a priority to take those skills to the next level when I continue my education, and earn a higher degree in the health care field. I am a wife and mother to three children. My oldest son is a missionary in Australia and Papua New Guinea. My middle son has high functioning Autism and has required a lot of dedication and care for his 17 years. He has taught me so much about life and helped me to have incredible patience. My daughter is a competitive gymnast and we've dealt a lot with training injuries and healthy eating to keep her body strong.
I've been a caregiver for as long as I could remember & took care of my younger siblings. As I grew up, I helped take care of my ailing grandparents. After they passed, I took care of a fabulous woman who had MS and Lupus. I started school to become a nurse but didn't finish because I started having children and wanted to care for them. As they have gotten older, my passion for health care has resurfaced and I'm looking to finally finish nursing school.
I am very compassionate, trustworthy, hard working & loyal. I have helped others who have become like family, in very difficult situations such as hospice care and extreme hoarding situations. I am very non judgmental and kind. Often times people have mentioned they are embarrassed at first (by either the state of their home, being unable to care for themselves properly due to health issues, etc), But I have always helped ease their anxieties and embarrassment by just being kind, loving, and patient. I am very professional, but try to help make clients smile or laugh and help make difficult situations a little bit easier. I care about everyone and everything. I have worked with many families to help care for their loved ones and make difficult times, a little less stressful.
