About Deborah

I have worked for 17 years as a Certified Nursing Assistant and have assisted hundreds of patients that have dealt with life limiting and/or fatal diagnoses. I have learned so much about compassion, kindness, and empathy and I have tried to incorporate those qualities not only into my work but also into my personal life. Working as a Certified Hospice Palliative Nursing Assistant has taught me to be grateful that I get to help the patient and their family at the end of their life. I have worked with a wide range of personalities and have proven interpersonal team building, leadership and motivational skills.

    I love working with people and helping them become more independent. Being a caregiver I know I am giving back to society. Being able to change someones life and making them comfortable is a great achievement. I am here to help people feel good about life because they know someone else cares. I am a people person and I strive to help people feel good about themselves.

    1. Why did you become a caregiver? I love providing home caregiving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. 2. What do you like about being a caregiver? I enjoy the opportunity to impact clients’ lives and make a difference to them. I appreciate the chance to get to know clients and their families and become an integral part of their lives. 3. what is a personal achievement you are proud? A personal achievement that I am proud of is caring for a client who didn't have any family and couldn't care for herself and becoming a big part of her life. 4. Tell us something about yourself? I am a very hard-working young woman I love being a certified nurses assistant. I love to helping people who aren't able to help themselves as if they would like to. I am very honest, passionate and loving.
