I am a compassionate, trustworthy, and professional Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who provides hourly and live-in care to seniors of all ages and ailments. For the past 15 years, I have dedicated my life to providing quality care to the elderly and others who have expressed their interest in my services. I am familiar with all aspects of patient care and have extensive experience in caring for patients with advanced illnesses such as: Dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson. In addition to providing care to these illnesses, I also provide the following services: Respite care, Hospice care, Incontinence care, Stroke care, Diabetes care, post-Hospital care and all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). In 2004, I re-focused my career into health care by becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and acquiring my State License for both Virginia and Maryland. The decision to go into this field came about after my granddaughter was born and I made the decision to become her Caregiver. I cared for her from birth until her mother made the decision to enroll her in a day care program, and at which time, I decided to focus my attention on taking care of others and joining the Nursing Profession. Because of my past job experiences as a Caregiver and a Senior Care Provider, which I combined with my course work, I am very confident that I can provide excellent services to all clients. I have enhanced my ability to providing compassionate and dedicated care to others and have worked diligently to provide excellence in all my professional endeavors and, have earned a reputation for my results driven work ethic; I have also received frequent commendations from patients and their families for providing exceptional care and have received employee awards for dedication and performance as a caregiver, because caring for others has always been my passion since childhood.
