I am a passionate caregiver who loves the work I do. I started out taking care of my ill grandmother at 17 years old in North Little Rock, Arkansas. I graduated two year ahead of my class at 16 years old in May of 2011. As soon I received my diploma, I quickly enrolled in CNA classes where I soon graduated first in my class in February 2012. I have been in the medical field ever since. My grandmother thankfully recovered fully in good health and since then I have worked in facilities and home health areas. I am an easygoing person with a bubbly personality. I love to make people laugh as well as feel comfort and peace in my presence.
I have a strong affinity to Seniors and believe that they are entering in a unique but confused time in their life. They are proud and have worked hard in their life and unfortunately the world as tech savvy as it is has created additional confusion to their life than necessary. I have great care and compassion with anyone with differing needs. I have been around the world in missions in SA, USA teaching and working with children and adults with differing needs. I have taught handicapped children therapeutic riding, I have taught adults with differing needs how to connect to technology to see a bigger world and gain enjoyment by using a computer. I am a extremely caring and compassionate young lady that has lost her father to Dementia. I have seen all sides and respect the changes that occur. I have worked for a large facility and did medicine management as well as direct resident care and any chore the resident required. I appreciate the fact that most of our elders are not in need of being in a community, however, they may just need that helping hand at home that assists in day to day tasks that they can no longer do. I am willing and capable to drive the resident to their necessary appointments or grocery shop or whatever or where ever they need to go,
I've been assisting seniors for as long as I can remember, I began as a volunteer when I was 12 years old, I've held various positions in the Healthcare industry, Activity Director, Social Work, Administrator, but I always find myself pulled back to the hands on care, to me there isn't a more rewarding career.
Hello! My name is Erika, sociable, responsible, and most importantly caring. I want to be a caregiver because I love taking care of others, and medicine is what I want to pursue. Though I enjoy the science and learning that goes along my journey, the reason I wake up every morning for this type of work is the people I get to directly interact with. I'm most proud of my experience making connections with the elderly in my nursing homes experiences, but also of my academic progress and leadership progress that I am taking with it.
I like to see the look on the person's face when I walk in knowing that I'm there to help them out for the day or just there to sit and talk with them if they need it. Because sometimes that's just what a person needs is some there to talk to. I was attracted to this job because I knew there where people out there that needed the companionship at there own personal residence.
I feel that my purpose was to be put into people's lives to help them with things they cannot do alone, and to help them succeed in general. I love helping other's and just the thought of knowing that I can be there to assist makes me happy. I am a great caregiver and does whatever is asked of me

I have been doing caregiving all of my life, approximately 25 years or so. I started as a Nanny in Greenwich CT. I then had my own son at 25 and wanted to try something new. I worked with the developmentally disabled for a few years and then I had the opportunity to do home health care for a total quadriplegic diagnosed with MS. I loved everything about caring for her. I took care of her for 5 years. I have done home health care ever since. I treat people as well as I would like to be treated. I am skilled, caring,loyal, responsible, and love to laugh!
Priding myself apon three basic principles; Always be honest, (it is the best policy,) treat others as you want to be treated,(with compassion and understanding,) and always respect other people's wishes, choices, and dignity, ( little respect goes a long way). Taking care of others is such a rewarding career choice. Over the years I've often said I didn't decide to be a caregiver I was born to be one! It is part of me and just who I am. My mother says I've been mending broken wings and bringing home strays since I could walk. I am a highly skilled Certified Nurse Aide with excellent references seeking a position in which i can utilize my skills and experience. Having skills in self direction as well as the ability to be self reflective coupled with strong values and morals I feel sets my quality of care above the rest. Respect, Trust, Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty, Compassion, Tenderness, Patience, Understanding.
