I genuinely care about others, no matter the age. Outside of my wishes of being a medical assistant, I wanted to be a caregiver because I would have one-on-one time with the person. This desire of mine grew as I started working for Clark Lindsey. As a waitress, I get to know the residents to an extent. The reason I joined Synergy (home health care), was to be a companion to residents that may not have that or any type of care as they used to. Knowing that they don't get to see their loved ones as much as they want to, I feel even closer to them because I feel like I can be that person for them-someone who is close to them, cares for them, provides safety, and to really listen and have interest in them.
For the client that I currently have as well as others in the past, I learn a lot of life experiences from them and I love to see their eyes light up when they tell me parts of their past as if they are reliving it again and again.
Lastly, my personal achievements that I'm proud of happens at Clark Lindsey and with a client I used to have. At Clark Lindsey, when residents would come up to me (when I'm working, or just visiting) telling me that they always enjoy seeing me, always makes my day. Also, recently with a client, I aided in the recovery of one walking again. Even though, I don't see him anymore, I'm happy that he is with his wife and truly happy. I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant since October of 2004. I have had the rewarding opportunity to care for many people with various conditions. Through my experiences, I have excelled in areas of patience, empathy, and communication. My caregiving skills include, but are not limited to; bathing, skin care, dressing, feeding, repositioning, ambulating, toileting, obtaining vital signs, transferring, preparing and serving food, medication reminders, oral hygiene, hospice care, and cleaning living spaces. I enjoy going above and beyond my expected responsibilities to ensure excellent care. I remain sensible and approach high pressure issues appropriately, according to urgency. I am results oriented. I think in terms of what else can be done efficiently, yet with a quality outcome. I take ownership of my job and hold myself accountable. I am flexible and willing to handle a variety of tasks in an organized manner. I am a compassionate person and I am always ready to help others in both my personal and professional life. I work well with all kinds of people and can adapt to their lifestyle and environment.
