My name is Nancy Kallon, I have been a CNA since 2004 to present.
I am a very professional person that values the importance of time and also love my job.
I am a strong candidate for this job because I have a proven track record of performing all types activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, toileting, feeding, moving patients to and from bed and wheelchairs, and assisting them in rehabilitative exercises. I am also adept at taking and documenting vital signs, weights, intake and output as delegated per facility protocols. In addition, I have a demonstrated ability to prepare and serve meals, assist patients with eating and accompany patients on appointments and visits. My enclosed resume will provide you with a complete snapshot of my skills which will be beneficial for your facility.
As you seek a CNA who can communicate with patients effectively and contribute to your different departments, I am confident you will consider my qualifications.
One of the best qualities that I have as a caregiver is a sense of empathy. Whether I'm caring for a small child in a daycare or helping an elderly person recover from surgery, a sense of personal understanding and connection is vital. I understand the elderly may feel vulnerable, scared, confused and uncomfortable, and being able to identify and allay those fears can create a sense of calm and trust for those that I care for. Patience is also vital to the role of caregiver, I'm able to separate myself from potential anger and resentment and not take the situation personally, all while still providing high-quality care services. I can keep calm and soothe them in their time of distress or anxiety and being a a voice of encouragement. I'm reliable because I know that they depend on us and often feel a sense of personal attachment. I'm continually on time, particularly if administering food or medical care.
The job of a caregiver is challenging yet rewarding. I do this because I am following a dream of helping others. Providing care to people, who cannot look after themselves, while maintaining their dignity, is an accomplishment in itself. I thrive helping people who cannot help themselves.
I became a caregiver to help the elderly . I like most being a caregiver is putting a smile on a face. My personal achievement is making someone day worth looking forward to the next day.Having a client who didn't talk much all of a sudden become a talker. I am 43 years old. I have been working in the caregiver field working with adults and children over 10 years. Ensuring the patient's highest level of well being at all times while under your care
