I have been a Registered Nurse for 38 plus years. I have worked on medical, surgical ( with pediatric) units as well as labor & delivery, nursery & care of mom's recovering from deliveries. I have personal experience caring for immediate family members who have mental illnesses, diabetes, stroke, heart attack, kidney failure , dialysis & dementia. I worked at a local hospital for 18 years, then at a physician's office doing phone triage. I then became a school nurse for 11 years caring for grades 3, 4 & 5. I knew I wanted to be a nurse since I was 3 years old & never wavered. I began working at 16 years old as a nurses aid. I am a compassionate caregiver who gives her heart & soul to whom ever I am caring for. My job performances have always been average to above average. My job as an RN did not stop when I got home. I cared for my brother for 35 years till he passed from a multitude of illnesses, many of which are mentioned above. I cared for my Mom when she became ill with dementia. I want very much to continue helping & caring for others but in a different capacity as a companion. Less paperwork & more time with your loved one no matter their age. My focus is always on the individual I am with & my care is individualized to suit their needs. I am awaiting my background check as of January 15, 2019. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for considering me as a candidate to care for your loved one. My patients have always been treated as I hoped my parents, children and siblings would be.

I've been an active caregiver for the past 15 years or so, both as a live-in and live-out caregiver. Most of my working experience comes from outside of the US. I started working as a caregiver because needed a job and earn money(do not let yourself fooled by anyone that says otherwise ) and as a single mom of three you can guess that i had no choice in choosing what i considered at that time that i would like. During the years i earned so much more than money. I started out with a job and ended up with having more and more family members as each and one of the patients that i assisted become in some way my mother/father, my daughter/son and a challenge to build up my empathic skills . Ended up understanding that caregiving is not a JOB although it's paid. You treat not just people but a very fragile class of people. They definitely need our assistance in daily chores but that is not enough , they need somebody that does not define them only trough their disability. Caregiving it's not just about taking care of a body it is a 360 degree assistance which consider the person in a holistic way (body,mind and spirit) As a caregiver i might fail in some chores(nobody is perfect) but one thing that i am proud of is that as much as i could i tried to bring joy. Hard but necessary was when I had to assist patients in an point where life comes to an end. In some cases I sing their favourite song, hold a hand, give a caress to the person in need and explain to family members that it is perfectly normal to be scared or to suffer and to assure them that they are not alone.

Hi, Growing up my siblings and I spent a lot of time at our grandmother's house. With my mom we helped clean, helped her shower, did her grocery shopping, etc. We did this for years until her health deteriorated to the point she had to go into a nursing home. That period of time was difficult for me because of things I saw, smelled, and heard. After my grandmother passed, I graduated high school and obtained my CNA license. I was determined to be great at my job. No one one wants to get sick or old but it happens to everyone. I want to do my part to make that period of life as comfortable as possible for whomever I'm caring for and their loved ones. I love the feeling of really helping someone who can't do it alone. It's gratifying knowing what I'm doing is really appreciated. I'm proud of my work ethic. I'm a great CNA because I truly care and I think that sets me apart because it's never just a job. A little about me: I'm a wife and mother of 4 school aged children. Because of them I've developed a great level of patience and understanding. I am sympathetic to the needs of others. I think I could be a good fit for your family and I would love the opportunity for us all to meet and further discuss my skills and your needs. Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about me and I hope to hear from you soon. I am a licensed CNA and available immediately. Sincerely, Mrs. Adrienne Weeks P.S. I am a licensed CNA and available immediately.
