About Waka

I have been volunteering for the red cross over 20 years, I love working with people. I became a care giver in 2006 because thats the only thing I enjoy doing, I like to make a different in people's life. I have learn a lot from working with elders , even if they have dementia, there is still a lot you can learn from them.Some of the elders I have worked with became so closed to me to the point that some times their family members would ask for my help from home to go and talk to their patents if they get agitated, I treat elders like my own parents. I am currently working part time with Wakemed hospital at the surgical department.

    I decided I wanted to become a caregiver when I accepted the job of caring for my elderly grandmother. I enjoy helping and assisting those who are in need of assistance in their daily routines. Going to school and receiving my CNA certificate. My passion is helping people.

    I started out in a privately owned Assisted Living in 2003, not needing my LNA. During my first year there, I fell in love with taking care of others. I went back to school and got my LNA license in 2004 (NH requires you to be licensed). I enjoy serving our seniors by helping them lead full and productive lives each day. Their needs are always put before mine, I like to focus on quality of life. My personal achievement would have to be moving to another state and challenging my skills to take the test and get my CNA here in NC in 2010. I also took the state test to become a medication tech in 2016. I feel that I can adapt easily to any environment and can work very well with others. It is said, that I have an out going personality and am courteous to everyone. I am 41 yrs old, met my husband when I was 19. We had a son, who is now 21, got married in 1999 and had our daughter, who is now 18. We are from NH. Moved to NC a little over 8 yrs ago and love it here. The activities of daily living I can perform includes.. Hygiene/bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting assistance/incontinence, mobility assistance, transfer assistance, feeding assistance, transportation, managing medication, light housekeeping/laundry, exercises, groceries/shopping, companionship and more!
