About Dayna

I believe what makes me a great caregiver is the following traits that I've had since childhood. Number 1 I am very patient with my clients. 2) I am very compassionate when it comes to my clients. And 3) I am strict when it comes to the wellness of my clients. I have so many good qualifications when it comes to being a caregiver. I am humble, kind, polite, caring and very passionate about my job. Every aspect of my job gives me a great sense of feeling that I am making a difference in somebody life. Until you have gone to bed at night knowing that there are people out there that if it wasn't for you wld be somewhere they didn't want to be. The feeling you get inside when you hear one of your clients calling you their angel is the most satisfying feeling you cld possibly get out of a job. Since I was a child I wld see an elderly person carrying bags and I wld offer to help. My mother told one time many years ago before I even knew what I wanted to be when I grew up that one day I was gunna be a caregiver but she saw only one problem with it. And that was that I wld get to close to my clients and losing them wld be very challenging for me. She saw my future before I did and she was 100 Percent correct. My ultimate goal in life is to help as many seniors as I possibly can to stay out of nursing homes and be able to enjoy whatever years they have left in the place they are most comfortable at home..

Experience & Education

Direct Care Worker

Mar 2017 - Apr 2021
Home Instead Senior Care
I was a direct care worker for 5 years. I took advantage of all our training experiences so I cld be qualified to fill any and every position. Some if these were Alzheimer's/Dementia training, Hospice, Hoyer/Sit to stand. Although I am not certified I took a lesson on CPR by hands. I helped my clients with their ADL's and IADL's. I also helped with transfers, ambulation, toileting, personal hygiene, light house keeping, medication reminders, transportation. Kept a record of daily activities, and task completed each day and observed and reported any changes with my clients. I also wld play games and or did hobbies with my clients to keep up with their cognitive behavior, played memory card games. I made up a sheet for every client asking likes, dislikes, where they were born, where they were from, how many children they had, hobbies, interests, things they enjoy, things they are not fond of. This way I cld get to know everyone of my clients more personally.
