About Shakia

I'm very friendly and compassionate about my job and the residents I care for.I developed a passion for care giving when I was 15 and my grandfather was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer.I realized how drastically you can change a persons life just by being there for them and showing them you care.My grandfather was on hospice majority of the time he had cancer and I was the person who helped take care of him after hospice caregiving hours.Bonding with him and knowing how much he appreciated me and the things I did for him made me realize I'd love to be a blessing to other people in the same way and from that day forward I knew I always wanted to work in the field of health care.I am very proud of the loving and patient person I have became in my journey of caring for others and I'd love to further my experience and be of great assistance to someone else's life.

I am trustworthy, patient, respectful, generous, and compassionate. The expertise that helps me to be a great caregiver is being a mom. Being able to help others is what attracted me to being a caregiver. Seeing the person, I help feel a sense of accomplishment, brightening someone's day, and just showing others that there are people who are willing to help is what I enjoy the most. One personal achievement I am proud of is that it seems my child is growing to be a thoughtful person by observing myself and others.

I ABSOLUTELY love helping/caring for others, it makes me FEEL good,like I'm GIVING them freedom of living at home, a chance of living out the best where they have tons of memories, without having to be put into a care place! Having over 11+ yrs of experience of being a professional Personal Care Aide, in home & live in facilities , as well, I've worked with dementia patients as well as others who just needed a caring hand, and I'm a VERY compassionate person who is responsible and reliable. I CAN be on call if NEEDED! I've always enjoyed & respected my ELDERS, it's just part of being myself, an Empath,plus they have so much wisdom to share with someone who TRULY CARES & I FEEL like this is my TRUE calling!
