About Tonya

I became a caregiver when I was 19,during that time I was caring for my uncle who was dieing from stage 4 cancer.Yes it was hard but sence then I've cared for clients who suffer from Alzheimer's, dementia,Parkinson's and mentally challenged. Knowing I've made a difference in their lives gives me great joy.I think my greatest accomplishment is going to school to get the training I needed to do an awesome job.

I am a caregiver because I love people. There are not enough people to give care and attention to folks who need another set of strong yet gentle hands. I like to listen, talk and generally make people feel important and worth while. Caring giving is rewarding work. It makes me feel good when I can ease a burden and make someones day better because I was there. I am very proud of my ability to make friends and win trust. I worked for a nursing home in Iowa. There was one resident in particular that was hard for CNA staff to get along with. She wasn't very friendly at first but I squatted down in front of her, and explained this was the job I chose to do because I love helping people. She could see I was sincere, and warmed up to me knowing she wasn't a burden to me, and I liked helping her. I am in my second semester of school for Respiratory Therapy. I am love being in my yard gardening. My first grandchild will be 1 year old this July 21st. I'm a pretty good cook and a tidy house keeper.

1. I decided to become a caregiver after, being employed at Greenville Regional hospital and realizing I would prefer working one on one with an individual and have the opportunity to build a closer patient/employee relationship. 2. I enjoy being able to devote my time to one patient. 3. Volunteering on a 19 day medical missionary trip to South America. 4. I am a mother of three precious children!
