About DeYanna

I first became a caregiver to my mother who suffers from diabetes, she's legally blind in one eye, heart failure, and about a year ago her kidney failed so she does dialysis 3 days a week. I always loved helping and working with elderly people or children, I also was a day care teacher from 16 years old until I was 24 years old. My goal is to become a dialysis technician so I can work with my mom at her unit as well. I love what I do and this is a lifestyle for me.

I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping others. I love being able to give someone else a higher quality of life. My personal achievement that I am proud of is receiving a humanitarian award for caring for a Elderly man in need of care. I am a certified nursing assistant with over 14 years of experience in nursing facilities as well as home healthcare. I am a reliable, dedicated, and trust worthy woman looking to provide quality care in a safe environment. I have excellent problem- solving skills and good team work ethics.
