I became a Nursing Assistant when my grandfather was diagnosed with Cancer it was hard on my grandmother, but once I stepped in with bathing, helping with light housekeeping around the house or just letting my grandmother get out for an hour or two her load was lightened it was a blessing. I felt giving back to my grandfather for all the love and support he has given me all the years was truly from the heart, he later passed away within three months then my grandmother was diagnosed with Cancer and I stepped in for her with just myself and my little children and again it was a blessing but challenging at same time but God gave me strength through my trail and made me strong.If i can give that to everyone I come in contact with am complete because it's from the heart helping someone with a bath, dressing them for the day, of just having a conversation means a lot to so many.. I love what I do and can give another individual

What makes you a great caregiver? I'm a very kind and compassionate person, wanting to see people prosper in their everyday lives. I became a caregiver to invoke change. I love to see people progress where they where not before, and I come in and I'm able to help. I like being a caregiver - again, because I like to invoke change. I like to see people come from a very low place, to a place they thought they couldn't rebound from. Bottom line, I just love being able to a make a difference. What is a personal achievement you are proud of? There are many, however, this one comes rushing to the for front of my mind. I took care of this lady that had TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) When my boss at the time sent me to her home, I spoke w/her husband first. He went on to share w/me that she has slipped into a heavy depression and she just don't want to live anymore. He further went on to say that she had not walked in quite some time since the accident. Now fast forward, I'm speaking with her, she to said her family should have just let her die in the hospital. I shared with her that for the rest of the week we where going to do it her way, and come Monday, it was going to be a new way. To make a VERY LONG STORY SHORT, she began to do things my way. As I sit here (smiling while typing) she went back to the doctor, and he said WOW I have not seen you walk in a long time, she said "you can thank the WARDEN" and then she pointed at me. As I hurry to a close. I am not a cat person.
When I first became a caregiver I saw it as a opportunity to make money, but as I started to meet all of the patient and see how fun it was to take care of them and get to know them it became a joy to get up and go to work everyday. I like getting to know people and their family from all walks of life everybody got different preference due to their backgrounds it a challenge. I am proud when I leave each patient with a clean body, mind and sole that make my day. I have been doing home healthcare on and off for over 25 years. I enjoy what I do when I 'm doing it. I have taken breaks from it due to putting my all into it and getting burn out from time to time but I always come back to it because it what I like to do. I am experience in taken vital, transferring patient, giving bed baths and meal planning.
