About Eric

My name is Eric Knipp and I've been a CNA for 3 years. Over those two years I've gained some experience caring for patients with various needs including, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and various other needs. I have mostly worked part time as relief but I am now looking for more long term CNA employment. My availability is very flexible and I’m willing to work days or nights and even a rotating shift if needed. I am however not available for live-in assignments. I feel my clear strengths as a CNA is my ability to relate to the person I’m caring for and show a respect that helps them cope with what they might be going through. The health needs of the patients always come first. However I also really enjoy taking the time to get to know the people I care for and the stories that they tell about their lives and experiences never fail to bring a smile to my face. That I think is the best part of being a CNA, helping people. Please feel free to contact me if you’d like set up an interview.
