    I am a compassionate, trustworthy, and professional Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who provides hourly and live-in care to seniors of all ages and ailments. For the past 15 years, I have dedicated my life to providing quality care to the elderly and others who have expressed their interest in my services. I am familiar with all aspects of patient care, and have extensive experience in caring for patients with advanced illnesses such as: Dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson. In addition to providing care to these illnesses, I also provide the following services: Respite care, Hospice care, Incontinence care, Stroke care, Diabetes care, Post-Hospital care and all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). In 2004, I re-focused my career into health care by becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and acquiring my State License for both Virginia and Maryland. The decision to go into this field came about after my granddaughter was born and I made the decision to become her Caregiver. I cared for her from birth until her mother made the decision to enrolled her in a day care program and at which time, I decided to focused my attention on taking care of others and joining the Nursing Profession. Because of my past job experiences as a Caregiver and a In-home Care Provider, combined with my course work, I am very confident that I can provide excellent services to all clients. I have enhanced my ability to providing compassionate and dedicated care to others, and have worked diligently to provide excellence in all my professional endeavors and, have earned a reputation for my results driven work ethic; I have also received frequent commendations from patients and their families for providing exceptional care, and have received employee awards for dedication and performance as a caregiver, because caring for others has always been my passion since childhood.

    I love helping others, and realized that nursing assistance was a great way to do this. I have been doing home care since 2000 and am willing to go the extra mile to give my clients the best quality of life possible. Every effort should be made to bring comfort and a true sense of security to the family as well. My years of experience have taken me on a journey that has been both enriching and rewarding. I have learned so much and am blessed to be a part of the healhcare industry because it allows for a more personal interaction with the client.
