I knew I wanted to take care of people when my grandpa was sick when I was in 6th and 7th grade. Visiting him in the nursing home and hospital pushing him around and making him smile was the best feeling ever. I decided to go to Lawrence County Vo-tech for my 11th and 12th grade year to become a CNA and started working my senior year in November 2008. In 2012 I left that job to go to the facility my grandma resided in until she was well enough to go home which was about 2.5 years, and continued to work until I moved in 2016 I currently am working for St. Barnabas now as a hospice aide part time. I recieved an award for employee of the month in August from them. Overall, I enjoy helping care for people, and make them feel good about themselves. A smile of appreciation in return is so rewarding.
I came to be in the healthcare field from my mom who was an RN and taking care of some of my immediate family and always been a caretaker. Since my 3+ years as an CNA I researched and met people on how I could bring the certification I received to others so traveled across the USA from NY to Idaho as an CNA in long term care facilities, also with private home care, because I want to give back to the Elderly. The experience of working with families, has given me a better perspective on life and the ability to handle any and all personalities, different levels of care, medical diagnosis. My professionalism is graceful and consistent with respect to whom I care for and their families.
What makes me a great caregiver is that I love helping individuals that needs the help the most. I am warm hearted and can understand that I to may need help in the future myself so I look at it as paying it forward. I take my job very seriously. What attracted to me to becoming a caregiver was that I realized that some people don't have family that they can lean on, so as a helper to them, I would be considered family to them. I am outgoing, love to conversate about any topic, loves to cook and read books.

I became a Cna after taking care of my grandmother before she died from cancer. There was something so fullfilling about being able to give her care at her home in her last days. I have now been a cna for over 10 years. The hardest part of the job to me is not getting attached. I have a big heart and every patient I have ever had has been considered family to me.

Have been working as a care giver with elderly seniors with Dementia, Neuropathy, or Partially paralyzed due to a stroke, brain tumors, or old age doing cooking cleaning laundry grocery shopping medication reminders or just sitting communicating with then. I find it very gratifying to assist these who have some struggles with certain areas in their lives. I have found my clients seem to appreciate the companionship and the assistant I bring to them. This is not a new field of expertise for me I worked in nursing homes when I was younger. Then became a beautician for many years After two automobile accidents I started a business going into seniors citizens homes doing hair for them to give the ladies some independence. I took care of my mother for 2 years trying to keep her home while she was suffering from Dementia diabetes and heart disease. As I needed to go back to work I have been working as a care giver. Enjoying my time with my clients. I have not limited myself to seniors only as I do realize younger people need help as well. I do have copies of MY Own Background Check which can be provided upon request. I think I am a very caring friendly and out going person. A little different than most always trying to find the lighter sunnier side to life.
