About Ashleigh

July 7, 2014 From: Ashleigh Roberts RE: Online Profile My name is Ashleigh Roberts. At the age of seventeen, I became a CNA. While in High School, I had worked as a Dietary Aide at a local nursing home. It was there that I decided to become a CNA. I enjoyed working with the residents and knew that I wanted to do more with the elderly. I have worked in four very different environments as a CNA; home care, assisted living, nursing homes, and an ALZ.Locked unit. I enjoyed every minute of it, and became very close to some of the residents. My first position as a CNA was with a sweet couple, Bill and Helen. It was private in home care.

Then we would pick out her clothes, see to her shower and she always insisted on “helping” me. It gave her a sense of pride and self-worth to help. After 10 months with them, Helen's medical status required her to return to the nursing home. Even after this, Bill would call me to help with her doctor appointments, or just to give me updates on Helen. This profile asked me to list the achievement I am most proud of, and this is the one that brings a sense of accomplishment and pride. I feel I touched their lives in a positive way, and they embraced me as “family”. Though they both have passed, I always remember them with great af

    When it comes to caregiving for another person, you have to be open minded and patient. Being able to learn and adapt to their environment and how they live. To have good strength in order to help guide or transfer clients to different rooms or vehicles. Have the ability to keep up with the house keeping duties, meals, errands,appoitments. I have lots of experience in this field of experience.
