My name is Christina. I currently live in Raeford and I grew up in Fayetteville. I have a beautiful son who is 12 yrs old. We love pets and enjoy being outdoors. I believe I am qualified as a caregiver because it is my passion to help others and I love meeting new people. I have 13 years of experience in healthcare including hospital, nursing home, doctors office, and private home care setting. My skills which are not limited to, include bathing, feeding, turning, maintaining skin integrity, transferring, medication administration, wound care, as well as other specialized skills. I am also CPR certified. I am a hard worker and I am always open to learning new things. I have been a certified nursing assistant for over 10 years, and a caregiver for 8 years. I am a very compassionate caregiver, I believe that without compassion it is impossible to be an effective caregiver. Over the years as a caregiver, I have learned that having patients is as important as compassion. I am dependable, honest,and dedicated. I love what I do, and I am always willing to go the extra mile. I also believe that I am very knowledgeable in the area of Dementia, and Alzheimer's disease. I have worked with one of the Awarded Agencies, which is Aware Senior Care in Cary, NC. I also offer references upon request.
What attracted me to being a caregiver was my grandmother, who was a nurse. I have always admired her hard work, compassion, and the love she had for people. I receive great satisfaction as being a caregiver when I know that I have helped someone improve their day to day life. I love to see a smile on my clients face.
One of my personal achievements that I am proud of is being able to be a caregiver for my mother in my home. We as caregivers know that its not always easy taking care of your love ones. I believe it takes sacrifice, dedication, and strength to take of an elderly love one. Taking care of my mother has taught me how to be a better caregiver.
