About Amber

My care giving style is just natural. I adapt to my environment of the client/patient I'm around. I have a outgoing playful fun personality that is easy to get along with whoever you are. I was attracted to being a caregiver due to my grandmother passing in 2006. She was in a nursing home and I was young but still didn't spend the time I should have with her. Her care took a dramatic turnaround and we lost her quickly but quicker than expected. 3days and told we had a few weeks. I made a promise to her then I would make sure that I would go into the field of nursing to help and be there for others in whatever position I'm in to support them and give them the love they need to be ok. At the end of the day I know I've made a difference in someone's life. I feel full of love when someone's else is benefiting from me working. You might work so hard that you're exhausted but I promise you it does show in this field and does become accountable and rewarded. If it wasn't who cares you made someone life easy by being in it. The years of dedication I put into this field and never quit or gave up on the medical life. I fully believe in it's work.

1)I became a caregiver because I love to help others and make a different in someone else's life .2)What I like about being a caregiver is,to be able to help someone and it make me happy . Because I am a loving & caring & respectful ,trustworthy person .When I'm helping someone I feel very happy , especially for those that can't help themselves. 3) A personal achievement that I am proud of ,is all my four children are done with college and one of them is married and started with new job and my last one/son is graduated done with college & already starting working. To me that's a big accomplishment and very proud of all of them. I'm going to be a grandma next year That's make me really happy &they are really close to God that 's making me even more happier. Only God can do such things ...To me it's a dream come true & Glory to GOD. 4)About myself , I've been married for 31 years and I have four children and I am God fearing .And I've been Cna for more than 17 years and I love what I do . The reason that I love it is because I was in car accident 20 years ago I could not do nothing for myself and my family took care of me and I said to myself I have to help others who needed help & won't be able to take care of themselves. And because I have compassion for what I tell anyone that who want me to work with a loved one if they don't have enough money to pay I'm willing to negotiate. Because our Father in heaven wants us to care for one another.

I am by nature kind and caring. When my father became ill with colon cancer I was his caregiver. I would pick up and administer his meds. Knowing I could bring comfort to him mentally and help in his physical needs made me feel better as a person. He had come to a point where he was wheel chair bound. I drove him to all Doctor appointments. I also manicured him by that I mean shave his face, cut his hair, and fingernails. Prepared lunch and served him, I did anything to make him feel good about himself. I stayed with him for many hours daily till my mom came home. I also took care of my mother-in-law and she lived with me and my husband for 2 years. She was 91 and had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her care was different than my fathers. Nonetheless, her remaining years with us were eased, The care for her was serving her meals, help with bathing, walking with her, getting her into bed and out of bed. General all around every day living and care taking. Then there was my mom. I took care of her when she no longer could walk. She had had a triple by pass and severe emphysema. A few years later, she had a serious fall which led to a slow demise . I took care of her for 3 years. I enjoy knowing that I can help one in need.
