I became a caregiver because I care about the well-being of the elderly. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel good inside. I am dependable, responsible, and honored to take care of the patients I meet and have a positive impact on their lives. I have up-to-date CNA and BLS certifications. I also have 3 years' experience working with the elderly, assisting them with eating, bathing, dressing, toileting etc. I get a sense of satisfaction from helping patients feel comfortable and loved.

This not only includes physical appearance changes that the patient may be going through, but any signs of emotional distress as well. I'm understanding and empathetic, listen when the patient wants to talk, and if I feel that there may be issues with the patient contemplating suicide, or any other psychiatric issue, I report it to my head nurse. ... more
