I am a very caring, passionate person! The PATIENT ALWAYS COMES FIRST! I have been taking care of patients for 8 years now! I am 61 years old and I am old school! I don't believe in rushing because that is when you make mistakes! Take your time with your patients and care for them like you would want to be cared for when you get older. Or if they were your loved one! Let them know that you can be trusted. Keep them safe and their home safe from falls. Wash their face, comb their hair, brush their teeth, etc....make them feel good and refreshed! Respect their religion and ask questions! Listen to them and pay attention to what they are telling you. Respect them and their home! I love helping others that have a hard time helping themselves. It's rewarding to me and it comes from my HEART! I have helped my whole family who have passed in their home with cancer, heart problems, Parkinson's disease, and not one went to a nursing home! This is why I became a CNA! It gave me such gratitude and made me feel good to see them smile at me everyday for making them feel good! When I walk through a patients front door I walk into Their home! With a smile on my face leaving my problems behind me! It's all about the PATIENT! The Patient Always Comes First!!
Hello, I'm Tamika I live in Hoyt, Kansas. I've been a Certified Nursing Assistant since 2014 in the state of Kansas. Previously, I was a Certified Nursing Assistant/Medication Aide in Nebraska started in 2011, before becoming certified in Kansas. I really enjoy working with patients/clients who need assistance with activities of daily living, whether its getting up and ready for the day, medication reminders, ambulation assistance, meal preparation, or just compainonship. I became a Certified Nursing Assistant because I enjoy making someones day bright by just a simple smile. I'm a single mom of a 4 year old boy. I work August through May as a Special Education Para with visually impaired children, for local school district.
I love working with a variety of different individuals. I've also had alot of training in the nursing field and am always looking for a position to further educate myself and always willing to learn new things. I'm proud of myself for completing the EMT course. The thing I like most about being a caregiver is knowing that I can make a change in someones life.
I became a Caregiver because I love to help people. After high school I will be attending Kansas Wesleyan University to study nursing. The thing I love most about being a Caregiver is that I get the chance to brighten someone's day every day, whether it be by playing a game of cards or just by keeping them company. I go into work every day with a smile on my face because I know I get to do what I love. I am currently attending Washburn Rural High School as a senior. I will be graduating in December and after that I plan to get some more work experience before heading off to college in the Fall of 2015. Some of my hobbies include: travel, softball, and board games. I volunteer a lot of my time tutoring in math and mentoring young softball players.
I believe that I am a good care giver because I am so easy to get along with and I just everyone. I decided to go in the direction of health care because I feel that it is almost second nature to me to help out where and when I can with being a mother of 4 kids. This asks what attracted me to the healthcare provision and to be honest in the very beginning it actually just kinda fell right in my lap. My husband because disabled and I was a stay at home mom with no schooling or work underneath me and it was time I had to help support my family. It was just the right timing that Kne-cap was running a program where they was helping people go through school to get them somewhere. I decided that was my opportunity and to grab it while it was available. I am proud of myself because I got both my CNA and HHA with the help and got a job and stuck with the first one and just loved my client. From there I decided to take it even farther and get my associates degree in Business Health while working full-time and being a mom of 4 small kids. I have no work history for this under my belt at this giving time.
