Being someone who loves people, I have been nurturing and helping friends and family all my life. I took care of my Dad, who passed from cirrhosis of the liver, to the end. I also have taken care of a few dear friends who have dealt with cancer, dementia, alzheimer's, end stage renal disease and heart issues. I believe we are all put here on this earth to help each other and you should always treat others as you want to be treated. Enjoyment comes from knowing, however hard the situation is, that you did your best to make their time here (and also their final moments) full of love, happy and funny moments, respect, and dignity always. A gentleman I took care of, who passed at 84, told me that he had never had a birthday party in his entire life. Myself, and others who loved him, gave him a wonderful birthday party and he was so happy! He passed shortly after that. Knowing I make a difference in someone's life is the best achievement! Also, I will respond to all TEXT messages only within 24 hours. Please text me your information and I will call you back at my first available moment. Thank you, in advance, for your consideration. I am searching for 8 hours minimum of work per day or more, flexible to live in also.
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.
