Hello, My name is Christina. I've been a caregiver for just over 10 years now. I love my job. I love getting to know someone on a very personal level and trying to make life alittle easier, if only for a little while. I've always wanted to work in the medical field. After getting some wisdom from some family that had been in it for many years, I decided to start with my Certification for nursing assistance first. I've done facility and private care for many years each and love the impact that I have had and equally received from my patients. I've done almost every skill that you can think of, from driving to doctors apt. to staying over night for end of care, and everything in between. One of the things Im most proud of, in regards to caregiving is becoming 'part of the family'. I love that I can give the family members a sense of security knowing that I am there for thier loved ones.
I think I would be a great care giver because I have experience with care giving. I was employed at a home health care facility and loved going to clients homes and tending to their needs. House keeping, preparing meals, grocery shopping, Dr. appointments etc. I was very good at it too. I am a compassionate person when it comes to caring for ageing adults. I am anxious to begin a new career with CareLinx
I decided I wanted to be a caregiver when my grandma got dementia and needed help with everything. I would check in on her every other day until my Aunt moved her out of town and put her in a nursing home. Wasn't happy with the care she was receiving and knew I'm more caring and generous than them. I'm understanding and a hard worker. I let my CNA expire but still graduated for it with good grades. I only left Barbs because she died unfortunately. I was sad and upset with the other caregivers because they did not seem to care and talked down to her. But over the last few yrs we have a house directly across the street for brain damaged residents and today I just took one some bday presents and rubbed a cramp out of anothers leg so I wanted to go back to doing it. I'm involved with bible study to better myself and just got cleared as after 2 yrs of blood clots in my brain. I enjoy helping people when I'm capable as and have always gotten along with the elderly. They make me smile with their stories and appreciation. My personal achievement I'm most proud of is that I've been sober since 2008. I worked at a bar and was easily persuaded to stay and drink and got me into trouble. I hope you can see past that because I am a good, loyal, caring, generous, hard working individual.
I became a caregiver because I love helping people. I like being able to be there when someone needs extra help with everything even the little things, and putting a smile on someone's face that may just be having a bad day. I think going back to school would be my achievement that i'm proud of most, I started the LPN program and graduated now waiting to take my boards, so I can go on and become an RN and get my Masters in Nursing so I can teach.

I have about a year left before I am a registered nurse, I'm 20 years old, and I decided I wanted to work in healthcare in high school and have been a CNA ever since! I prefer in home care because I find it easier to work with my school schedule, and i prefer the one on one time with my patient!
Hello! My name is Katie and I have been working in the Medical field for over 20 years. I have experience working with patient's that have Alzheimer's, mental illness and intellectual disabilities. I have worked as a CNA in skilled care, long term care, assisted living and patients in the Alzheimer's unit. My passion is to help others and to bring a smile to their faces. I am blessed to have a career in the health care field and a job I love!
I am a very hospitable and caring person by nature. I became most interested in being a care-giver when my own mother needed care because of Alzheimers disease. She lived for 11 yrs with it so I went through every single stage of the disease with her. Although I have office, customer service, retail sales and driving experience, I'm looking to branch out into other careers that are more-suitable for my age (59.) Care-giving is the direction I would like to go! I've been told I have a way of making others feel comfortable (2 of my previous supervisors told me this) and I am very eager to use my skills and naturally calm demeanor to help others. My most proud achievement in life was to raise a son who became a doctor a few years ago!
