My name is Youlonda Hawk and I am a Certified Personal Care Aide. I first started off taking care of the special needs children in high school an I found myself really enjoying it. Eventually I started noticing that I really enjoyed helping others. 2 years ago my grandmother had gotten very ill and we had to put her in hospice. My family an I started noticing that the facility that she was staying at wasn't doing a very good job, so we decided that it would be in her best interest to live at home. It started out at me taking care of her witch consisted of me rotating her body because she was paralyzed from the waist down. I had to blend all her foods because she was unable to chew I gave her a bath changed her catheters and made sure that she was well groomed. I found myself braiding her hair very often even though she was bed bound she loved looking pretty and having braid, and sometimes to even put a little make up on her. When ever I seen a smile on her face I knew that I was doing a great job. I also would transfer her from her bed to wheelchair so we could go outside and enjoy the scenery and sometimes we even went to the part. One year later she passed away, and I just knew that taking care of the ones in need was my calling. I take great pride in making others happy and putting a smile on other faces. Recently went back to school an received my Personal Care Aide Certificate which I am very proud of. This is just the beginning of something great.
