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 have always been around/involved and interested in being with elderly and adults from a very young age I was visiting nursing homes with family and church members and have always interacted well and been very involved in caring for elderly family and extended family. My kids also love to draw for and interact with the elderly. They lived with their great grandmother and helped care for and entertain her and keep her interested and sharp mentally through their interactions. I'm very driven, perfectionist and learn fast. I've been in the medical field in one way or another as far back as high school as I took clinical classes in the local hospital working in the PACU and day surgery areas there in HS, and I took Medical therapeutics, Health Science and EMS in HS. I enjoy listening and pulling each person's history and past memories forward and hearing people's life stories and meeting people and l love to help others. I find helping others heal themselves and get back to living their lives and helping others where needed to be very fulfilling!
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.
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.
