Ferndale, WA · 1 years experience
I have always been a care giver. Not always in the work field, but even as a child it was in me to care for everything. I always thought it was my duty to care for anyone and everything. Started with animals (some of which didn't need care according to their owners ha) and went to vet assistant. Then to opening a day care and caring for children. After the day care I was a school bus driver. When I could no longer drive a big bus physically I became a CNA and will stay such until my retirement. My heart is to tender to work in big facilities where I observed care takers having to rush to get their work done and to many older folks sitting around with no one to talk to. I knew it wasn't the CNA's fault, but my heart hurt after my internship at a great facility. It was then I knew I could not work for a facility. When I worked for an agency, I saw that they truly didn't care who they placed with who, had policies that limited our ability to actually be a friend to our clients and it was more about the profit than if the workers or clients were happy. So this led me to become a private care giver. I can work cheaper than what someone would pay an agency and there are no rules saying I can't get attached to my client! I truly care, and won't be told not to. I do realize that sometimes chemistry isn't right, but at lease we can discover it rather than just being thrown together and expected to work. I currently have one client and can add one more. I keep my hours limited so my schedule can be easily tailored to yours. I am a respite care giver. Meaning I am a permeant relief caregiver. I will do over nights a couple days a week, and 2- 5 hour shifts during the day. This is all negotiable! I haven't been a paid caregiver for long so couldn't list many years. But my experience is much longer, and my training is fresh and continuing.

I am compassionate, loving, extremely patient and a good listener. I am a licensed CNA with expertise on End of Life Care. I very much enjoy serving seniors and their families. I became a nurses aide in 2015 after caring for my father for 10 years while managing home life and full-time work as a Montessori educator/administrator. I have over the years enhanced my skills by focusing on end of life care and helping bring a little joy to someones day through respect, love and dignity.
