My 13 years experience in caring and assisting people who can't do for themselves. My characters (trustworthy, reliable, responsible, accountable, caring) shows me with so much compassion for the people I serve makes me a great Caregiver/Personal Assistant/CNA.
I became a CNA/Caregiver/Personal Assistant because I enjoy taking care of people who have lost their ability to handle their basic needs.
I like being a CNA/Cargiver/Personal Assistant cause I take comfort in knowing that I make people comfortable as possible, put a smile on their face, and help improve the quality of life for them during what can be a trying time in their life.
One personal achievement I am proud of is being the main role, for 6 years, in helping a man regains a positive outlook on/for his life after suffering a Stroke that left him with paralized on his right side, wheel chair bound, and told that he would never walk again. I committed myself to be his leaning tower(Personal Assistant/Caregiver). After 5 years of going to Physical and Occupational therapies 3 times a week with him, learning the exercises, then assisting him with these exercises in his home.he is no longer wheel chair bound, he walks 2 miles a day , he drive his vehicle, he's continues exercising in a gym, and he's no longer depress about his ability but encourage others living with a disability.
I am currently 27 years old, mother of two. I have been a home care aid and personal assistant for the last 3years.
The reason I became a caregiver was due to the fact when I was 7mths pregnant with my oldest child my mother had a stroke that effect her short &long term memory and was in much needed help at home with her daily need due to the fact my mother has difficulty remind certain things like she did years ago; I felt she needed someone to help but since she didn't like stranger in the home I became a caregiver to show her caregiver aren't just stranger they can become part of your family as well.
I am very familiar with all house cleaning, washing clothes, assisting with elderly needs, washing dishes, organizing furniture, running errands, cooking (basics), assist with bathing.
I currently have desired work schedule of which would consist of
Monday to Friday 9-3pm;
Sunday 7am-5 p.m.
due to kids being in school. I am mostly flexible with any job description except for transportation which at the moment don't have a vehicle.
