Am a CNA aged 29years. Am a quick learner, neat, a time keeper and very passionate about care giving to seniors. I get along very well and am a very social person by nature. I help with meals prep, doctors appointments, passing meds, shopping errands, house keeping, showers and grooming of clients including pedicure and manicure . I have worked extensively with seniors with dementia, diabetes, alzheimers, Parkinson's, stroke and fall risks. I provide companionship and assist with light exercises and physical and occupational therapy . I have adverse knowledge on the use of hoyer lift too! Provided care for totally dependable clients including tube feeding, bed baths /pericare, oral care and vital checking. Am a Certfied Nursing Assistance (C.N.A) with over 10 years of care giving experience. I have all the Certfs needed, I
have worked with different types of clients with different types of need and diseases, and am comfortable with it all, I have working experience with Dementia, Alzheimers, Diabites, spinal injuries incontinence, wheel chair, Bedbound, Hospice, end of life Patients and many more, Am comfortable with that all, and that makes me a great caregiver I like and enjoy helping the needy ones, elderly and the less fortune,and I like my job very much despite the challenges I come across during my line of duty. Mine is not just like any other work, NO, its a calling from God to help his people and that why I do it with a lot of passion, Am honest, Loving,hardworking, caring, compasonate, trustworthy, kind, good hearted, Am Reliable. I have a lot of patience with my Clients, am a quick Leaner. I enjoy my work, working with my clients are the happiest moments I enjoy and look forward for. I love it and do it with all my heart and soul, I take good care of my Clients, with a Passion, like I would with my own parents, or the way I would like someone to take care of me some day when I get there. I work with very little supervision or None at all. And am very creative to make the care comfortable and manageable. I treat all my Clients like grown up not like Children. , I discuss their care with either them or family members, and we agreed on what is the best and comfortable for them. Am a God fearing person, Help me ooh God. The world exists upon the kindness showed by others, and that this kindness keeps alive the souls of those needing care.
What I like about being a caregiver is that, for clients who cannot do many of the things they used to do, like running around and getting things done to take care of their families--life now begins anew based purely upon things that matter now today-- the worth, the thoughts, and the amount of attention that is paid toward them. This is a time of really focusing only on the present moment, and it takes a certain degree of concentration even to do that, sometimes. They are now the person who need this the most.
My greatest personal achievements are when clients, who experience a decrease in function, and sometimes can hardly move or talk, are the most appreciative for my attentiveness to understand them. The story of the Good Samaritan identifies a good neighbor as one who shows kindness, and the rewards write upon the heart and soul.
Caregivers are to the aging population a group who recognize that aches and pains are not going to go away. What some call a disadvantage, or disability serve, in many ways, to be an advantage because we shift our focus and attention toward what is really important in life-- people and how they are treated.
I am only one of many like-minded caregivers who believe that a moment of clarity with loved ones--paying attention to the good in the moment--is the same as finding diamonds in your own backyard.
