am dependable and compassionate caregiver, quick learner and able to follow directions. I have worked in Medical Field for over 10 yrs, worked in homes, facilities, hospitals and group homes. In the past, I have assisted clients with their activities of daily living, companionship, recording intake and outputs, recording vitals signs, experience in using hospital equipment like Hoyer Lifts, and Stand Lifts. I also assisted with light house keeping, grocery and laundry. I try to connect with my clients by spending time with them, going for walks, taking them to appointments. when necessary, I am great caregiver because I have been in this field for a long time and I have enough experience, I treat client client like my own family, and I have enough skills to benefit my client. I started out in a privately owned Assisted Living in 2003, not needing my LNA. During my first year there, I fell in love with taking care of others. I went back to school and got my LNA license in 2004 (NH requires you to be licensed).
I enjoy serving our seniors by helping them lead full and productive lives each day. Their needs are always put before mine, I like to focus on quality of life.
My personal achievement would have to be moving to another state and challenging my skills to take the test and get my CNA here in NC in 2010. I also took the state test to become a medication tech in 2016. I feel that I can adapt easily to any environment and can work very well with others. It is said, that I have an out going personality and am courteous to everyone.
I am 41 yrs old, met my husband when I was 19. We had a son, who is now 21, got married in 1999 and had our daughter, who is now 18. We are from NH. Moved to NC a little over 8 yrs ago and love it here.
