1. I became a Certified Nursing Assistant, CPR certified, and HHA, Home Health Aide in the early 90s. I have been certified ever since. I was working as a waiter in a RETIREMENT HOME, when I became involved in care without not knowing it, as I enjoyed helping the residents of the facility. Harriet Brown one of many residents there, thanked me for helping when someone needed it. She stated to me and others that I went the extra mile to assist others.
2. I Love to help people, I like to be in the right place at the right time to assist them.
3. It is very important that I make my clients/patients smile and feel comfortable.
4. I am a good companion, active person, super clean, and willing to help. I am a good listener and like to learn from every experience. We never stop learning, we never know everything. What makes me a good caregiver is that I want to be there when you need me.
I have been an RN for some years now. And I am retiring this month.
