I started out in a privately owned Assisted Living in 2003, not needing my LNA. During my first year there, I fell in love with taking care of others. I went back to school and got my LNA license in 2004 (NH requires you to be licensed).
I enjoy serving our seniors by helping them lead full and productive lives each day. Their needs are always put before mine, I like to focus on quality of life.
My personal achievement would have to be moving to another state and challenging my skills to take the test and get my CNA here in NC in 2010. I also took the state test to become a medication tech in 2016. I feel that I can adapt easily to any environment and can work very well with others. It is said, that I have an out going personality and am courteous to everyone.
I am 41 yrs old, met my husband when I was 19. We had a son, who is now 21, got married in 1999 and had our daughter, who is now 18. We are from NH. Moved to NC a little over 8 yrs ago and love it here.
The activities of daily living I can perform includes..
Hygiene/bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting assistance/incontinence,
and more! I feel most satisfied in doing my job when the ones I am caring for feel safe with me. There is something about making someone else feel better that I cannot put into words. My recent experiences have been fulfilling and rewarding for myself, and the client. I pride myself on not only being on time for work but usually a bit early. I take pride in doing my job well and safely. My goal is to provide the best care when, where, and the way it is wanted and deserved.
Because I usually take the initiative, the client and the family is put at ease rapidly. I am trustworthy and reliable (and a pretty decent cook, if I might add:) I am strong and energetic. I like the outdoors, walking, sports, and reading. I am a caregiver you would be very satisfied with ( I'm speaking from previous experiences:)) I am dedicated to my clients and their welfare. If you want a caretaker that is there to provide care and not use personal electronic devices while on the job, I am that one. (757) 597-4380, Morrisville, NC. Willing to relocate for right opportunity.
I am confident in my abilities to care for you or your loved ones professionally, safely, and compassionately. Other skills include being empathetic, listening, good communication, and transportation. I also possess working knowledge of sanitation, personal hygiene and basic health and safety precautions applicable to work in a hospital setting; working knowledge of infection control procedures and universal safety precautions.
