My 13 years experience in caring and assisting people who can't do for themselves. My characters (trustworthy, reliable, responsible, accountable, caring) shows me with so much compassion for the people I serve makes me a great Caregiver/Personal Assistant/CNA. I became a CNA/Caregiver/Personal Assistant because I enjoy taking care of people who have lost their ability to handle their basic needs. I like being a CNA/Cargiver/Personal Assistant cause I take comfort in knowing that I make people comfortable as possible, put a smile on their face, and help improve the quality of life for them during what can be a trying time in their life. One personal achievement I am proud of is being the main role, for 6 years, in helping a man regains a positive outlook on/for his life after suffering a Stroke that left him with paralized on his right side, wheel chair bound, and told that he would never walk again. I committed myself to be his leaning tower(Personal Assistant/Caregiver). After 5 years of going to Physical and Occupational therapies 3 times a week with him, learning the exercises, then assisting him with these exercises in his home.he is no longer wheel chair bound, he walks 2 miles a day , he drive his vehicle, he's continues exercising in a gym, and he's no longer depress about his ability but encourage others living with a disability.
For me, caring for clients, especially the elderly brings me joy. I've been in the health care field since 2012. I have a bachelors in medical sciences & presently obtaining my masters in health administration. I've worked as a caregiver for a year. For me, It's not much about the money, but about the joy I get from caring for the elderly. It's my dream to manage nursing homes & hospices and I believe that my experience as a care giver will help me better understand the true feelings and needs of these population of people. I see my clients as family and I care for them like family.
Helping others has always been a goal of mine, even as a little girl I knew I would be in the medical field in some capacity. My heart is into caring for others.

I understand signs and symptoms of most illnesses. I am unique in that I understand and have knowledge of tradition medicine, but also holistic wellness. I truly believe if we did both and all, we would be in a better health condition as a country. I have certification as a Medical Assistant/Patient Care Tech from 1986. I have been in medicine for 25 plus years. My most recent place of employment was with Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I only left for a job offer with a Chicago Union, SEIU.
I have been a caregiver for over 17 years. I most certainly love what I do. What makes me a great caregiver is that i am very patient, gentle and sensitive to the needs of my clients. I am very caring and compassionate and that is what has drawn me to become a caregiver because people need care and they most definitely need to be shown compassion. What I love most about being a caregiver is the many different awesome people i get to meet and care for as well as their families. I was just recognized for being caregiver of the month from one of my current employers.
