I became a caregiver 12 years ago at a developmently disabled adult group home. I loved working there, and giving care to such special people. After 3 years I decided to become a CNA to be able to work in a nursing home. I have been employeed now for 10 years as a CNA, and have worked in many different settings. I have done assisted living, nurding home, home health and hospice. I personally enjoy hospice care to provide care for the end of life is such an honor. The families are beyond appreciative and respectful of thr hard work and dedication I give. I am a people person and thats what has made me into such a great caregiver this is just what I made to do. I listen to what my patients and families want and expect from me, and bulid a plan together to give the best quality of care.
