When I was younger I took care of my granny then my grandma when she got sick. I've had such a passion for helping ones who've once helped us. The amount of gratitude that comes from the eyes of the helped ones fuels the love and compassion I've always had even as a child. I become the loved one trying to achieve their goals. I also have the same goals, their struggle is my strength and my will and desire to help even more. I am a strong willing worker. I strive to make my work an accomplishment. Im a very quick learner. I look for patterns and common likes and dislikes, little things that make their day go by easier. I worked hard at a nursing home that trained me in hospice , memory care , the rehab facility as well as assisted living( resident aid , med cart showdeowee ). left there to care for one gentalman in sarasota ( live-in caregiver ) I became family. He passed recently and ive taken it really hard ive bounced from job to job ( caregiving- private care -friends of friends ) not becasue I couldn't do it anymore it just was hard to think I wasnt working for him anymore. I have recollected my self and became an even better person /caregiver/ companion. The amount of love behind every ( client, family member , loved ones ) fuels me. I have a humongous heart. I've become experienced in every day to day living. Over night care , lifting , bathing , housekeeping, errands as well as medicine administrations. I have a very strong will to work and not leave till the job is 100% complete. I'm a very loyal , dedicated worked. I become family. My Mother was my Inspiration for going to school to become a CNA
