Hello my name is Jessica and I've been a caregiver for over 15 years. I worked in many nursing homes and even did sitting work before hurricane Katrina. I love helping others, and taking care of those who are unable to care for themselves. My personality traits are that am very compassion about taking care of others and I put my all into my work. My work really speaks for itself. I love working hands on with the patient and the family members also. what attracted me to be a caregiver was working for different company made me say that this is something I can do on my own, because of the pride I took in working for others, and I went home one day and said that I was going back to school to be a nurse. While in school, some things took place in my life that were personal and it set me back from entering nursing school, but it never stop me from having a passion for be a wonderful caregiver. The best part I enjoy about being a caregiver is seeing smiles on my patient and family members faces and being the best that I can each and everyday. I'm most proud of being able to learn skills daily and keep those skills up by caring for others and listening no matter if I know something or not.
