About April

I became a caregiver because I enjoy taking care of others while my 20 years of being a certified nursing assistant I learned that in order to do this type of work you have to have love, patience ,communication ,etc.Patience because you are dealing with many different people and when working some going to move slower than others but you can't rush them and commmunication because when working you have to be able to talk to the people you are working with and let them know what you are doing for them and you love because without loving what you are doing and loving them you will never be fit for healthcare I enjoy working with different clients and meeting their family members so they can know the great care I give their family member I am proud of being able to say I finished school and as of 04/03/2018 I have been a CNA for 20 years
