I was asked by a former co worker to look after her husband while she worked. I was not sure I would be very good at that kind of work because I had never done it before. I worked in housekeeping at a nursing home at the time and always felt bad when a patient asked me for help because I was not allowed to do any personal care. I agreed to care for my co workers husband. I really enjoyed being able to help someone and be there for them to talk to. Shortly after that I pursued a job in home health and have been working as a home health aide on and off for close to 6 yrs. I try to treat all my clients as I would want someone to treat my family members. I enjoy being able to provide what I believe is an important service to my clients and always treat them with compassion. I enjoy being able to make my clients smile and laugh. I am very proud that I have been able to bring clients out of their shell enough to make them feel comfortable with me which allows me to provide them better service. I am currently in the process of locating a school to obtain my STNA . I am a very hard worker and always treat my clients with respect. I worked for three years in an assisted living for alzheimers .I finished my classes for stna in may and took the state test and obtained my license on may 30 2015. ... more
