I'm 56 years old and I have been a caregiver most of my life. I'm a very caring person and I am compassionate to others needs. People are my passion and I am always available to help someone who's in need of a lot of love and affection, and companionship. My goal is to be able to make a difference in their lives and to see a smile on their fac, let's me know I did my job well, and their heart is also happy when I'm with them. I always put thier needs first.
I am CPR and first aid certified, have been for 4 years. I'm the oldest of 4 kids, I have custody of 2 of my younger siblings. I have a 4 year old sister I watch on the weekends. I watch my niece and nephew from time to time. I've been in JROTC all 4 years of high school. I'm outgoing and absolutely enjoy being busy, and having things to work on and do helps pass the time by. I enjoy being out of the house, and running errands. I've been around animals all my life so no pet bothers me. I can cook and clean been doing all my life and will continue to. I absolutely love kids, kinda have a little baby fever but i'm too young to have my own kids yet, so caregiving children help get that out of the way. I get emotionally attached to anyone I take care of and it makes me even more of a good caregiver because I care wholeheartedly.
Professionally I work at KVC Prairie Ridge Hospital in Kansas City. I started October of 2014 and currently work there as a CNA. Personally I took care of my grandmother who had Alzheimer's for 4 years; which ended in the Fall of 2014. I then took care of my aunt during the Summer of 2018 whom was on hospice. My aunt had stage 4 breast cancer.
I have experience working in the hospital, SNF, and home health setting. I have a passion for helping people reach their highest level of independence and believe in quality care for all my patients. I have been certified in BLS and have two years of experience in caregiving in medication management, transfers, and basic ADL's. My favorite part of being a caregiver is the relationships I build with my patients.
