I first became a caregiver in 1989, taking care of my foster grandmother. I was with her until her last breath in 1992. From there I took care of my son who was terminally ill with brain cancer. He passed in Nov. of 1993. I started working Home Health as an attendant in 2001 with Oxford in Joplin and then with Independent Living. I moved to another state and worked as Dietary Manager for an Assisted Living facility. My dad became ill in 2009 so moved back to Joplin to care for him and went to work for Independent Living Center from 2010- 2014. I worked taking care of my father fulltime from 2015- 2017 when he passed. I am a go getter done gal who loves working with the elderly or any age needed. I have not worked since Sept of 2017 when Rheumatoid Arthritis took control of me. I would love to work part time preferring the afternoons and or evenings. Mornings are hard for me until medicine kicks in and movement begins.(humor) I am able to do most tasks except heavy lifting, and tight gripping. I love working and miss it so but physical labor all day is impossible for me I am sad to say. Would love to prove that I can carry on with meal prep, household duties, bathing, and numerous other tasks. I am very personable, and compassionate.

I was lucky enough to have been raised in a Military family, living all around the world. I feel accomplishment when I can change the life of someone.

I possess more than thirteen years of progressive experience in the Health Care field. Working with patients and specified seniors may be a difficult task for some but I do not find anything more challenging and enjoyable than making life easier for someone who has gained wisdom but lost control of physical and mental amenities. I have hands on experience in assisting individuals with disabilities and special needs. I have also had great success in developing and maintaining productive relationships with patients and their families to ensure smooth rehabilitation. I am certified in BSL and I will follow all proper procedures in emergency situations.

Hello! My name is Kayla I am 20years old and currently taking classes at Pittsburg State University. I have been a CNA since 2016, working in three different facilities. I am skilled in caring for those with memory care needs, and those with behaviors. My favorite part about providing care is seeing the difference I make in the live of those involved. Upon the completion of my bachelors I will be attending medical school where I plan to specialize in Pediatrics. The greatest achievement I have made thus far is spending my summers off traveling to foreign countries and assisting in the care and development of hospitals.

Hi. I not only have been doing this for as long as I can remember but I have been doing this since my nana passed away, last year. It's an a amazing feeling to enjoy your clients company and to enjoy the talks and bonding you do with them. It's about giving back for me that's why I got into this. I want to remind the people who are age so gracely before us that not all of this generation is corrupt. I don't just go to a job. I go enjoy time with "Sam." Or "mary." Whoever is my client I go to spend time with them so I can help them.
I received my CNA license in 2013 and have been working in either nursing homes or in home health care since then. I have since received my Level 1 Med Aide license through the Department of Mental Health, First Aid & CPR certification, as well as MANDT training. I am currently enrolled in Medical Assistant classes, so my job hours would have to work with my school hours.
I became a caregiver because, I like helping and taking care of people. I like to meet the patients and hear about their life and background. I am pride of my achievement of being a single parent and raising my kids up right. I am a quick learner, I am very flexible. I'm looking for a morning shift or an overnight shift.
