I am very dependable, focused, determind, fast learner, team player, loving, kind, respectful, I love the elderly. I discovered at the age of 12, when i was helping my grandmother take care of her older sister who had altimers and she allowed me after she showed me how to wash her, help her brush her teeth, dress her and feed her and it was not only fun but my aunt enjoyed me helping her, made me feel good inside and we took care of her until she had to go to a nursing home and that was when I was 14 yrs old. When I got older I knew I wasnted to talk care of the elderly , but wanted to make sure so at 16 my 1st job I worked in the kitchen as a dietary aide and i would delivery trays and I see all the elderly and it made my heart just melt for them and specially when they ask me to help with something I could being a dietary aide, so I left kitchen and still wanted to make sure so I went into housekeeping and I was happy because I was closer now to the elderly and I can see more, but that still wasn't pleasing to my heart desires so now im 24 just got married to my high school sweetheart and soldier in 08 and I was a pca and giving showers to the elderly and i loved it and I knew now that Im married I am going to go for it and I did Im a cna and been doing this for 8yrs total now and the reason I am not a nurse yet is because I love the more hands on care for the elderly than just giving them pills and spending short time with them. I love my job because its not just my job, its my calling to GODs ppl.
