About Colisha

I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping people and everyone needs some type of help. I enjoy my job and everything about it. I love sitting with my residents talking and getting to know them better knowing their background, and having a personal relationship with them. I am most proud of the fact that my residents request to work with me and are mad when I'm off work. I have been a CNA since July of 2012 I have been working as one since November 2012 and I enjoy it.

    Is my belief that EMPATHY is the #1 core characteristic I have because I totally can put myself in the place of who I am caring for. I am a dependable and reliable caregiver. I have 2 years of experience on dementia patient. I am able to communicate effectively and make my client feel respected. I like to think of ways to ease tense moments when client is resistant to care. Responsibility and punctuality identify me. A plus is SPANISH as a native language. I want to make a difference in the lives of those in my care.
