Some people ask me, "why are you a caregiver?" I smile and simply respond, "I care to care."
Caring for others has not only created an occupation for me, but also a way of life.
Waking up in the morning and knowing that I am on my way to make someone feel better, either by assisting with daily living activities, by listening, or by telling jokes that make a client smile, makes me feel a great sense of accomplishment and joy.
I have been a caregiver for over six years and have never had a dull day since I began. Each day provides me with an opportunity to make a positive impact on someone, and I cannot think of anything more rewarding.
I am an empathetic, forthright, punctual, honest, and patient individual who maintains professionalism at all times. I believe that these fundamental characteristics put me on level ground with the clients I have cared for throughout the years, and with their families and loved ones.
Since childhood I have wanted to make a difference in people's lives, and being a caregiver I can make an impact that goes above and beyond that goal. I have seven years of experience in the field of nursing as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and a Certified Medication Technician (CMT). I have demonstrated the ability to meet and exceed goals, and I have a proven history of valuable skills.
I also have extensive ability to resolve key issues, communicate pivotal concepts, and develop innovative ideas. I always love helping other people and I enjoy impacting clients' lives in a positive way. I appreciate the opportunity to get to know my clients and their families, and to become an integral part of their lives while providing excellent care and support. I am proud of going back to college to further my studies in nursing. I have the ability to take initiative and prioritize my workload, and am very punctual, hardworking, dedicated, kind, respectful, honest and extremely attentive. Before I began my experience and interest, let me introduce myself.
My name is Miheret. I prefer going by Mercy. I am from Ethiopia. I enjoy reading books and hangout with my friends. I am a positive person, patent, listen more, friendly, hard working, and more
Before I become a caregiver, I was a cashier at retail store. I enjoyed working as a cashier but it was not what I need. And so, I did not stay long because I need a job that will prepare me for my personal goals so medical field has been a good fit. So I started by taking CNA class. Afterward, I start working a nursing home and home health aide. Currently, I'm working asRMA. I like being a caregiver and RMA because It makes me happy when I met their need. Eventually, being a good caregiver and RMA will benefit me to become a better nurse. All in all, I have a good experience of doing ADL and administering meds. Through my experience, I have learned and practice a good patient care and go by according to patient/client need. I enjoy being a caregiver and RMA.
