Hello my name is Jatara Coleman I'am 19 years of age .I first started doing home health care with when I was 10years old my mother she was a RN and PartTime CareGiver to family and friends for over 20 years this field is nothing new to me in November of 2011 Our family descoverd my mother had leukemia during this time i really became invested in the medical field to properly take care of my mother all the skills she taught me through out the years kicked in i even took up some basic nursing classes in high school to properly learn the skills .In the mist of all of this my brother was hit by a car in a hit and run which caused him to suffer from strokes and blood clots in his legs while my brother was home he was under my care because he was uncomfortable with a home aid so I made out a daily meal plan and daily exercises so he can one gain his strength and two learn how to walk all over again my brother battle ended December 25,2016 at the age 24 and My mothers battle ended Februray 6,2017 I took care of them both until the end these two are the reasons why I started working in home health care.What I enjoy the most about the job is that I am able to help someones day more better then the day before my object is to make my clients feel like family with love care and understanding . I have a couple personal achievements, because in the past year I over came alot I got my first apartment and car and still have both ; everyone around me expected me to fall and never get back up. At the age of 19 I over came everything that came my way with strenght,faith and wisdom I looked at everything as a lesson and I still do ; because I had to learn everything on my own with no help so it made my out look on life change.
