I was called in this field of work by God I love what I do and when I do it. I love embracing people with my smile and encouraging people that WE CAN DO IT. I graduated high school and I wanted to go to school for music but I loved taking care of people so I went for my CNA . I took care of my mom before her transition. My personal achievement is knowing that my resident is happy and the end of my work day.
I am a very reliable caregiver with over 15years of experience(the experience sums up my overall performance) I have patience, very attentive, compassion, dependable and trustworthy... for many years, going back to as young as 8years old I've always had a heart to reach out and help others with greater needs than my own. When I realize just how much my efforts touched hearts and made a difference I made it my duty to continue pushing forth in assisting others with their personal care needs. I've cared for disabled children, childcare license/daycare, nursing homes, special needs facilities, retirement homes, and in home care... I've had many opportunities to redirect my passions/careers and I've found nothing else more heart filling for me than my duties as a caregiver.... I've always been told "any type of work you do, if your heart is into it, that's where you belong" and to sum it all up... I enjoy making a difference for the better in others lives!!! I'm proud to know I'm still accomplishing my mission in seeing to it another life has hope for a greater day!
As a former public school teacher, agency staff member and school administrator, I have had the opportunity to serve families in many capacities. As a child of a parent with Alzheimer's, I have care-giving experience. Additionally, with a psychology degree, I have had the opportunity to apply strategies and best practices in working with individuals that exhibit challenging behaviors. My special education background allows me to understand how to work with PT and OT needs. Recently, I cared for a gentlemen in his home fulltime through Right At Home agency. He just transitioned to memory care. I received caregiver of the month recently. My service at Home Instead allowed me many great experiences with clients from various backgrounds and needs. I was awarded Caregiver of the Quarter by the agency Dec. 2018. It was an honor and especially when it was my pleasure to serve them. I am very reliable and dependable and enjoy immensely helping families. Caring for others has been my life's focus. I enjoy preparing meals and ensuring clients have a quality life with dignity. I am healthy and exercise frequently to stay strong mentally and physically for my clients.
I have been a CNA for more than 25 years plus, I now work in a hospital setting which I have done though out my life but has always done private care on the side because of the extra joys of doing the one on one care. It is very rewarding, I am a peoples person I have never met a stranger. I am presently employee at Baylor Hospital. But my schedule has changed due to short staff so I works Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 12 hours each day. So I am available to work Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays. Willing to negotiate hourly rate depending on distance and needs of the patient. I love animal, I do not smoke but have no problems with smokers.
1. What actually makes me a great caregiver is my willingness to serve and I believe it's my calling. 2. I became a caregiver because, I have great compassion for individuals in need of personal one on one care. 3. Their are several reasons why I like being a caregiver. The first reason is that I am able to be there for individuals that are in need of help. Another reason I enjoy being a caregiver is because, My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and after the cancer went into remission shortly afterwards, she was diagnosed with dementia. I eventually had to move her into my home and I realized how self fulfilling and rewarding it is to serve others with sincere humility. I feel that as a caregiver each individuals that I care for should receive the best of care, compassion, and the best quality of care that life has to offer. 4. My most greatest achievement is yet to come because, I'm looking to achieve more tomorrow than I have today. Life is a lifelong learning process and when you think that you have achieved your greatest achievement there is still room left for more improvement.

I became a care giver, because I was asked to help take care of my god father for a few months. I ended up staying in the field because I got another client by word of mouth and I absolutely love it. I enjoy what I do because I feel that I am making a difference in the lives of my clients not just because of their physical inability but the biggest part of my job is their mental well being. I try to put a smile and an Imprint on their heart every day. The personal achievement that I am very proud of, is that I have never had a client complain about my services. I pride myself on caring for my clients ,and their well being is a reflection of me. They may not always like the choices that I may have to make for them for their health but I have found, that they will appreciate the adjustments once they see and feel the benefits. I am very nurturing by nature . I appreciate my love and gift of servitude. I am a wife ,a mother, and a grandmother and I love family night once a month when we all get together and play taboo and eat a great meal together . My philosophy has always been "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." I also provide respite care. Short term and long depending on clients needs.
I've worked as a nurse assistant over 16 yrs caring for disabled, elderly, ill, and mentally challenged clients. I have worked in nursing home, hospital, home care, senior facility, respite care, private duty, direct care service, and hospice care, and trained in massage. I like to challenge myself as a caregiver with promoting new work skills. My time is giving care to others, that cannot do for themselves. My achievement is to see my three children succeed in the life that values them. For myself, to be recognized for my work performance, that's giving to each individual that has been cared for, show appreciation. I had several resident tell me that I'm wonderful, and I had a tearful moment. It's a blessing to hear positive thinking from a client. I'm a certified assistant living manager, private caregiver, and studied massage technique . Thank You.
