I have been a care giver for many years but this year is special because I received my Home Health Aid certification. I really love being a home health aid, it is a meaningful and fulfilling job! I appreciate learning new things which is why I know how to check insulin levels, administer insulin shots and perform wound care, since these skills aren't in a home health aides scope of practice. I always continue my education because we never stop learning new things! :)
My name is Maleka Lawrence I have been a certified home health aide since 2009. I have work with a variety of different clients over the years of me being a Aide. I have work with clients with all Hoyer lift, g-tube feedings, wound care, TBI, Alzheimer's and dementia, pediatric care etc. I love being aide because i'm helping someone stay in there home and be comfortable but also get the care they need to stay home and not a facility. I would say I'm a great caregiver because I have the skills and training but I also put my heart and compassion into every client I work with where all human and where all gonna need some type of help one day. I treat everyone if I was in there shoes. I became a caregiver because i want to be a nurse but I found myself loving Homecare.
I am currently a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). I have my Bachelors degree in Community and Human Services from Empire State College. I have 4 years experience with seniors with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. I was also the sole live in caregiver for 2 years to my mother whom has a stroke and needed help from toileting, bathing, relearning to talk, read, and walking. I have experience working with fostered youth as well as disabled children with an array of symptoms. I enjoy this work to the fullest and plan on furthering my education in Febuary by pursuing a career as an LPN.
