About Linda

I would say that I have the calling to be a caregiver. I have always loved to take care of children and the elderly because of my compassionate spirit. I am a very easy going person and do not take things personally but rather I learn to understand why some people behave in certain ways. My previous job experience as a Human Resource and Administrative Manager has helped me in dealing with all kinds of people. Knowing my clients and residents and understanding them has made me deal differently with them on different days. I notice every little detailed change in the client or resident because of my attentiveness and thorough care i give.

    Experience & Education

    CNA

    May 2015 - Oct 2015
    Rockville Nursing Home
    Assisted with feeding, provided personal hygiene like oral care, bathing and toileting and also assisted with ambulating. Took care of dependent and total care residents with expertise. Because of the love of the work I did, I learned very fast and provided care as if I had worked for more than three (3) years. I always pay great attention to the individual care plans since they might change every time. At the end of each shift I had to key in the care I had given to each resident on the computer and also the residents' ability to function. I did that in a little time and with accuracy because of my computer literacy.
