About Louanna

Growing up in a family of medical professionals I surely thought that one day I would become a nurse. After watching my aunt take care and aid the sick in her home, I knew I wanted to become more hands-on with patients. While still in high school. After high school I became a childcare provider in a facility, and I ran my own daycare from my home taking care of nieces & nephews. Although I loved what I did, it didn't bring me as much joy as caring for the elderly. Years down the line, a job fell into my lap at a home care/housing facility where I educated and assisted developmentally disabled individuals from the ages 21-50. I must say working there was very inspirational; not only did it open my eyes to the world, but it gave me the opportunity to help those who couldn't help themselves. This is what prompted me to further my education in caregiving by attending CNA school. I became a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) and started working at a nursing home/rehabilitation center. Boy oh boy was this CNA job different - but it challenged me to push myself harder and give 100% at all times. Being a caregiver is such an honor - it's all about putting away your needs to assist others. Knowing that a smile on your face can bring joy and happiness to someone else is priceless. The moments when you can reflect back and see how you have helped someone is what caregiving is all about. For Me, being a caregiver is more than a paycheck.

My expertise in caring for the aged is my patience,love,empathy,trustworthliness and flexibility makes me stand out in this field of care. My grandmother inspires me to be a great caregiver. When she was sick, i accompany her to the hospital,wash her clothes,cook for her and made sure im there when she needed me. The excitement and joy she had on her face when im with her makes me proud that at least i made her happy before she died. When caring for the aged i have the empathy because i feel like caring for my grandmother and to make someone feel happy means me feel good that my grandmother will be happy wherever she is. Being a caregiver is full of ups and downs but it has a great influence on my relationship with others. When a loved one whether they are of a sound mind or not deserve to be treated with love,needs attention and this is a priceless gift
