Skills & Certifications: Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
My role as a caregiver initially started when I was 17. My Grandmother broke her hip and I lived with her to help her live independently in her own home again. This was not a paid position but one out of love and respect for my grandmother. 13 years later she was my Maid of honor, danced down the aisle at my wedding, at the age of 87. I've always enjoyed working with people in various stages of their lives. About 4 years ago, I became very ill and after 3 hospitalizations, I was transferred to a nursing home for a month. I had to learn to walk again. That experience reminded me of seeing various emotions of my grandmother when I was 17. However, this time it was me that was in her shoes, except I was at the mercy of strangers. I now understood the roller coaster of emotions that my grandmother verbalized. I made many friends in my stay at the nursing home. It was actually very sad when I left. My friends I made there wanted me to stay and work there....both clients and staff. That was when I decided to become a caregiver to help others continue to live independently in their own homes. I love what I do. I know my clients enjoy my presence in their lives. And that feeling has no price tag.
I love being there and caring for people, I prefer being there to assist someone and making them feel better and stronger. What I enjoy most about caregiving is helping someone with their independence, making someone feel better about themselves and just helping someone have a better grateful day. My personal trait that I'm proud of is being able to put in all my effort to make someone's day beyond better, whatever it is I need to do for someone I'm there to do the most I am able to.
Why I became a caregiver is because I like helping people I think that's the best job u can have . I had a grandma who I heloped take care of In the last years of her life she had dementia ,parksisons disease, and many other health issues . That definitely made me want to help other individuals and other families through things like that. What I enjoy most with being a caregiver is helping people and making a difference in someone's life and getting to know that person and help out . I'm a very kind and caring person . I'm very reliable and responisble as well. I have a good heart that cares about people . I am a laid back person who is very patient as well . I was recently a caregiver to elderly couple as well .
I am a very loving and people person . I decided to become a caregiver when I started working at a care center in Hiawatha Iowa as a Dietary Aide . I decided that I wanted to work with the residents instead of serving them . I found a job shortly as being a resident aide at Mayvil assistive living , I didn't have to be certified. I then began to wonder what was the difference in being certified or not ... I started to look into classes to become a certified nurse assistant, I was determined to get my certification. So I took off a month of work to go to school . Believer it or not I loved it , when I finnished school I got at westridge care center , I loved my residents but I decided to return home to my hometown. I would like to get into some home health care ! I enjoy waking up everyday and being the first person my resident interacts with for the day , I smile definitely starts the day off . I also love to be able to tuck my residents in at night !
My name is DeAushia but I go by De. I am very outgoing and bubbly. I tend to smile A LOT and always laughing. I feel I would make a great caregiver because I not only have a little bit of nursing background and caregiver experience but I am very hardworking, currently in school to further my knowledge and education. I really miss working with people face to face and helping people in their home. i really enjoy being a caregiver because not only does the family feel more comfortable in their home, they are more likely to adjust better in my opinion. My personal achievement that I am proud of is getting into the Bachelors Program for integrative health.
