I love working with people and taking care of them, it's a great feeling to know that I have made an impact in someones life especially when they are not at their best. To see them smile warms my heart. I've always taken care of family members before I knew anything about home care. My personal achievement that I am most proud of was I was working in a nursing home and young lady had Aids and she wasn't expected to make it through the night and none of the other CNAs wanted to take care of her, so I took care of her after I made sure my other residents were alright. I gave her dinner, her last request was to have a Pepsi, after I asked the nurse if it was alright I gave her one. I gave her a shower, lotioned her up, put fresh linens on her bed and sat with and watched tv with her and within an hour she said thank you and expired. Also taking care of my mother.
