I have always wanted to work in the caregiving field, ever since my sister-in-law passed away from terminal cancer at the age of 29. The daily care she required was not something just anyone could provide. The compassion, patience and dependability that a person needs to help sustain their life's functions for as long as they desire is crucial to the well-being of both client and family. I am reliable, compassionate, trustworthy and patient. I am experienced in monitoring a patient's vital signs, temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and respiration. I am supportive of the family's rights and responsibilities as primary caregiver. I am a professional in all aspects, yet still can humanize and humorize situations. I am most proud of raising three children to be bright, beautiful, well accomplished young adults.

I've had a lot of experience working with all kinds of people.
I became a Caregiver because I love caring for everyone, young and old. I have been doing that for 30 years plus. I have been some sort of a caregiver since I was a teenager. As a teenager I was the most sought after babysitter in my neighborhood. While I was a Sophomore in High school I took a health occupation class that was a 2 year long program taken at the local hospital. When I graduated I was a CNA and took a job at the Nursing home where I worked for a couple of years. I left due to starting my own family and becoming a stay at home mother. I am most proud of my 3 kids, 2 grandkids and my wonderful husband of 32 years.
I have held many positions in the health field. My reasons for remaining in health care are many but the most prominent is the self gratification of helping others.

My current job does not say much about who I am as a person or a caregiver. Before starting in factory work I worked in a nursing home for 4 years. After the nursing home I worked in assisted living for a year. I gave my heart to those jobs. I loved ever minute of being with the elderly. I started by waking them up and taking them to the toilet. Then I would help them get dressed or dress the ones who were unable. I would then assist with normal morning hygiene care. I would take them to dine with others in the dinning hall and then I would feed the ones who could not go. I would do daily excersizes with the residents and give baths when it came time. After breakfast some would take naps, watch tv or do other things. After my rounds of helping to use the bathroom I would visit with some that I didn't get to spend so much time with because of our morning rush to eat. So many of those people whom I took care of couldn't remember some of their own family, but they knew when they seen me coming everyday and they were so happy at times. At the end of the day helping others comes naturally. My gratitude I get from being a caregiver is just making someone smile. If I can make them smile then I must be doing something well.
At my old job, I was always the bubbly, care-free girl who all the customers usually loved. Throughout the workplace, they called me Dory, the little blue fish off Finding Nemo. Yet I know fastfood is not what I am made for, making people smile is though! I almost never fail make someones day a thousand times better and a guaranteed smile on their face. For me, to be able to care for someone and make their days a whole lot better would make my life not only more beneficial, but also a lot less stressful. I know, I know, "This is going to make your whole life miserable, caring for these people all the time." Or at least so I've been told. It would honestly make my life have so much more meaning and I could highlight meaning in others lives, and to me, that's only a fraction of what this world needs, but I'm on board with doing it. I'm 17 until August so please don't put me in a situation you wouldn't want your kids in. I'm very accepting, I love to play cards (Such as: Spades, Canasta, Rummy, etc.), I help my mom garden, so I'd be happy to help if you wanted a garden. My favorite thing to do in this world is to sit and listen to stories so don't feel like you're bugging me telling me the same story the 10th time over again, I'll love it and listen to it every time.
I got my Cna licenses in October of 2013. I started doing Cna/caregiver work in March of 2014. Since starting this type of work I have really enjoyed doing it. I enjoy helping others when they can't do the things that they are use to doing or I like encouraging them to do things that they think they can't do. I'm glad that I took up this type of work cause it learns me new things every day. I'm honest, dependable, and dedicated to everything that I do.
