About Amanda

I became a caregiver because I love helping others! I was raised my by grandparents and when I was 11, my dad, (grandpa) became ill with cancer. I took care of him a lot even at that young age. I think that is why I became so passionate about caring for others. I love being a caregiver because I can brighten some ones day! Their is no other career that gives you the amazing gratification that caregiving does! I have been a CNA for 14yrs. I have had many personal achievements; however, their is one that really stands out in my mind. I was working in a nursing facility several years ago, and there was a patient there who had parkinsons disease and alzheimers . Everyone told me she rarely walked and if she did, it was very difficult. I began to close to this patient and trying to get her to walk more. I ended up singing a song to her when she walked that low and behold made it easier on her. I believe she focused on the beat and walked with it. She walked every day from that day on!
