About Veneta

The traits I possess that aids me in being a great caregiver are my compassion, my patience and never allowing my stress to get in the way of proper resident care and being reliable. What attracted me to being a caregiver was utilizing my natural talents for caring for people. What I enjoy most is being there for those who needs the most help and the look of gratitude I receive from my patients. A personal achievement I am most proud of is having the courage to go back to school to expand my knowledge in my selected field.
