I am a very passionate, dedicated, and committed to delivering selfless, purpose-driven service. I believe in servant leadership and making sound decisions in the absence of direction. I want family members to feel like I am an extension of their family, someone they can rely on when most necessary. I was attracted to caregiving by the reward that comes from helping others. Seeing people that were in need for care, when family members simply don't have time, money, or emotional longevity that is required in long-term assisted living and care. I am very proud of raising my two teenage daughters as a single mother, while working multiple jobs. It was very difficult, but highly rewarding seeing them grow, and exhibiting the same work ethic and love I try to possess. I love helping people in need, regardless of how little or big the issue.
I have been a Caregiver since the age of 10 when I started babysitting. I am patient, caring, a good listener, compassionate and just enjoy helping people live an easier life.
I enjoy the company of the senior generation, I think they deserve to live a happy, healthy, easier life as they get older, they have earned that privilege and I will do whatever it takes for them to live independently for as long as they are able.
It's not about the money in this profession, it's about caring, compassion and helping those in need.
I became a CNA cause I like helping the elderly and being their for them. It makes my day when I put a smile on their faces and hearing them say Thank You. When I did HHA, it made me so happy that a couple of clients did not want anyone else but me and that got my self-esteem and pride up so high, because I never thought I was that good, until then and this was just recently, and they would also ask me if I am coming back and I would say yes and they would say that's great cause we like you and you are a great person and it would feel great when their family member's felt the same way. I have been a CNA for 27 years. I have experience in working in a nursing home and doing home health. And I also helped take care of my mother-in-law that had dementia, which was very sad seeing her have that and when she passed away it made want to do home health, so can help people, be their for them like I was for my mother-in-law. I really enjoy working with the elderly, and plus I always thought that if that was my mom and dad that they deserve the best care because that is what I would expect from everyone, no ifs and butts about. I did not work from Aug. 1997 to Feb.2013 as a CNA due to moving to Wichita, and plus since I did not Work as a CNA for awhile thought I would have to take the whole CNA course all over again and there's no way I could afford that, but then found out that I just needed to get reinstated, so I got it reinstated, which I was so grateful.
