About Tamekia

I became a caregiver because I enjoy working with the elderly. I have great experience providing care and satisfaction for people. I like putting a smile on my patient's face. I have encouraged a depressed elderly to take a walk around the block when no one else good. I encouraged seniors who didn't want to eat to start eating. I am a hardworking, dedicated, punctual, compassionate young woman. I strive for success in whatever I do.

    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.

    I became a caregiver because I grew up in a children's home and there was a particular elder lady who took an interest in me. I grew to love her and felt a need to protect her, as we developed a close bond. When I became 18, I was visiting her at the nursing home until she passed unfortunately. In addition, I love working with the elderly & interacting with them.
