I am a highly experienced Certified Nursing Assistant and Geriatric Nursing Assistant with a focus on caring and quality of life. In addition to my focus on caring for the physical needs, I work to make the quality of life as rich as possible. I believe in a proactive approach, engaging the client even when there is nothing that requires attention. Caregiving is a natural for me. I came from a very large family and experienced caregiving early. My early showing of the caring tendencies let my siblings to call me "Mom," even as a small child. I love my clients like they are part of the family. Like family members, I want them to have the best care plus the best quality of life. The skills from formal training and certification and the experiences I have had allow me to give the quality healthcare and quality of life enhancement. My personality, which is positive with a large dose of laughing, is an important part of improving the quality of life of a client. I find being able to improve the health and quality of life very satisfying. If I can help the client have fun, that is the best. I had one client, who was an Alzheimer's patient, for three years until she passed. I take great satisfaction in the fact that the healthcare prolonged her life, and the outings and other things we did made her life pleasant. Distinctive Healthcare awarded me Employee of the Quarter for the work I did with her.

Mariama was very skilled and had many suggestions to help my wife with her condition. She cared for her very well, fed and gave her plenty of fluids, and helped me by cleaning and vacuuming.

I enjoy working with people and I most enjoy jobs where I have one-on-one interaction with others. I enjoyed taking care of my elder family members and would like to help others in this way. I like older adults and feel I can get along well with a variety of elders. I like doing work that has the potential to make a difference in someone’s life. I like doing a variety of tasks in a day. I don’t ever say, “That’s not my job” but instead like pitching in to do whatever is needed. I like making someone smile and doing little things to make a person’s day better. I take pride in attending to detail.

I have compassion for people and i have firsthand experience. I have my son who is 25 and autistic and still lives with me putting him in a home is not an option. I understand that people always choose to stay in their homes over a nursing home. I love people and my goal is making them comfortable and happy.
