Hi, my name is Donnetta. I have been a caregiver for 4 years now. I currently work in a Senior living facility, and take care of my grandmother that has Dementia and a Psychotic disorder. I became a caregiver because I love being able to help others, and it really hits home with me. I also really enjoy seeing them happy, listening to them reminiscence, getting to be a part of their world as it is now. Being a part of their world, the way they currently see things, that's something that you have to embrace. I am TB negative, my background is clean and I am drug free. I am not CNA certified, but, I have been trained just like a CNA. I have applied for a background check, its just not in yet. Good luck with your search for great care!
