I've worked as a nurse assistant over 16 yrs caring for disabled, elderly, ill, and mentally challenged clients. I have worked in nursing home, hospital, home care, senior facility, respite care, private duty, direct care service, and hospice care, and trained in massage.
I like to challenge myself as a caregiver with promoting new work skills. My time is giving care to others, that cannot do for themselves. My achievement is to see my three children succeed in the life that values them. For myself, to be recognized for my work performance, that's giving to each individual that has been cared for, show appreciation. I had several resident tell me that I'm wonderful, and I had a tearful moment. It's a blessing to hear positive thinking from a client. I'm a certified assistant living manager, private caregiver, and studied massage technique . Thank You. Hello my name is Venita, born and raised in Dallas, TX. I come from a religious background, raised to serve others as a suitable servant upon God. I enjoy helping to care for others; have it be family, friends or strangers. I truly believe that everyone needs someone in their lives through the good and bad times in life. When I care for others, I treat them and their family like they are my family members.
As a caregiver, I am proud of being able to use and share my wisdom and learning skills throughout the years amongst others. Being a caregiver at earlier ages has made it possible for me to start my own family and allowed me to care for them correctly in their personal need areas; mental, emotional and physical disabilities. I believe that I wouldn't have been able to understand upfront, had I not encountered those challenges in working with others with similar disorders and diseases.
My proudest achievement is determining my own diagnosis in 2016, Multiple Sclerosis, after working with patients who shared similar diagnoses and symptoms like myself. I have been able to care for myself and manage a healthier lifestyle after going through a near death experience to be in the position to start over and not give up in life, to continue serving others. :J
