About Donna

As a caregiver I am, observant, patient, kind, caring, and a team player. But I believe what sets me apart is my Respect for my patients. As a person ages and their independence and mental capacities reduce, it's easy to fall into the trap of being patronising... Am also Empathetic. Empathy is one of the most important qualities I need to perform my duties. ... My Experience, I have built a career as a carer with the aforementioned personal qualities - it would be rare to be attracted to the career without being a certain type of person. However, as well as personality I also have the experience most families need. For example, if your loved one suffers with dementia, then you'll ideally want to find a carer who has experience caring for others with the condition, that's me. I got into caregiver initially to care for a love one. To me no one could have done a better job. I soon came to realize that it was no easy task. However in no time I came to love, the smiles and the laughter I got as an added bonus for a job well received, it was awesome. Ensureing one's dignity and independence are kept intact goes along way. I love the history lessons. I AM super thrilled to be a nurse, "I changed careers, going from 17 years in Security Management into nursing. Haven't looked back and so blessed I had the opportunity to take this once-in-a-lifetime step. Now I'm in a different country, everything is new, and working on becoming the best CNA/GNA I can be. I can't wait to learn new cultures and meet new people on every case, I AM LIVING THE DREAM!"
