Hello I am a wife to a Veteran, and a mother to 4 children and 1 fur baby. I started caring for my Grandfather several years ago, up until his recent passing. To list a few things I did so you can get an idea. Bed Bathing, Grooming, Denture Care, Hearing Aid, Emptying Catherter & measuring urine, Blood pressure with machine and kept track, Stayed the night with him in hospital and cared for him there as well and called nurse when needed, flipped with help every 2hrs to prevent bed sores, used mouth suction, and more. I decided when he passed that I wanted to care for others the way I cared for him, and that is what lead me to be a Caregiver. I am not a CNA but would love to become one. I have been a stay at home mom for the most part of 12 years and cared for my children while my husband served in the Navy. I worked here and there when I could. Now that my children will be in school this year I am able to work. If you think I would be a great fit please feel free to contact me and we can talk futher. Hope you have a blessed day !!!! The things that makes me a great caregiver are my compassion for others, my caring heart, outgoing and friendly personality, I love helping others and seeing people happy, My warm and sincere smile that says you can trust me. and last m perseverance to never give up.
I decided to become a caregiver because my grandmother became ill. The family kept her at home. so everyone had to take turns taking care of her. That showed me that i had to heart and care to do this job, and I loved doing it.
I like being a caregiver because, I love to help people, make them smile, and bring as much joy to their day as I can.
there are so many people out in the world with no family to make them feel loved and let them know there is someone they can depend on when they need help or just someone to listen to them.
I am proud of the day I decided to become a CNA, I think back to my grandmother. Taking care of her let me knew this was something I would love to do. And she encouraged me to do so. She told me that I have the heart for this line of work, and that's the kind of person people like to take care of them, a person that has a heart for the job they do.
