I served my country in the U.S.A.F. and have worked at the Dept. of Veteran Affairs. I have been a C.N.A. for over 20 plus years and I have experience working in Florida East, Winter Park and Orlando Florida Hospitals,Hospice/Vitas care,Private duty care in St. Louis, Mo. and Franklin,Pa. and several areas here in the Sunshine State of Florida as well as working many nursing homes. Providing care to elderly people has always been exciting to me. Meeting female and male patients who are seeking different individual goals and then helping them to reach their individual goals from restorative care, knee replacements,stroke victims and spinal injury as well as geriatric care. Being a male CNA you must learn to always be professional and to be very discreet when working with all your clients whether they are female or male. I will always make you feel very comfortable and explain everything that I need to do for each different skill that I provide. I have learned to listen to the family and to the patient for the needs as they may change. I love listening to the history and the stories of the lives that they have built. I really believe that listening to the mothers and how they have cared for their own kids and the fathers who stand by their wives while providing them with the excellent care they deserve. Remember it's your turn to be well taken care of by your experienced caregiver. I can also help with medications and medical appointments. I love listening and conversing with the elderly. They have experienced so much and changes in this world. I am fascinated by the stories. I am a loving, kind, trustworthy and dependable person with an easy going personality and I also love animals. I enjoying life and smiling as much as possible and find that my passion is helping other people. Pricing negotiable depending on case. Thank you for your time and reading this. I look forward to hearing from you.
I became a caregiver after I had quit my job to become a caregiver for my mother who was suffering with terminal cancer. She passed away, but the quality time we were able to share while I was caring for her is so precious to me. Then I began to realize how important it is to give unconditional love and empathy to anyone who is suffering with an illness or the negative effects of living their senior years alone. I began to realize that we all will come to that stage in our life and having someone who truly cares about your well-being and helps you with a loving heart will make all the difference in the world! I enjoy being a caregiver because it is gratifying to "give back" I also like the fact that at the end of the day "I made a difference" in their life (even if they won't remember me the next day?!) My greatest achievement is the raising of my two children who have grown up to be successful independent adults. They both have a confidence and drive to do anything they set their mind to do. Makes me very proud! One thing I can share about myself is that while I was growing up, my sister and I would go to my Grandmother's house which she converted into a boarding home for the elderly. We would help her with various things such as, helping prepare meals, serving food, entertaining the guest, (like playing cards with them, putting on skits, singing, etc.) I have great memories of that time and realize as an adult what a great heart my grandmother had for helping the elderly.
