Hello my name is Victoria my residents call me Vicky. I'm 31 years old and a mother of one beautiful little girl. I live in salinas. My mother is my inspiration on why I became a caregiver. When I was younger I would go with her to work she used to work in a convalescent home. I seen the effect she had on her residence and how happy and relieved they were to have someone care for them. While in high school I did volunteer work in the city of Soledad at Eden Valley care center, I volunteer in there activity room. I once again enjoyed seeing the smiles on the residents faces. I then knew this is what I want to do. After graduating high school as a valedictorian. I took the class for a CNA certified nursing assistant and HHA Home health aide. Then I passed the state test. I had my CNA and HHA for two years. Unfortunately I did not keep up with the required classes hours. So it expired. I'm currently working in Pacific Grove at a residential facility called The Del Monte Assistant Residential Care. I have been working here for 7 years. I have worked for other agencies like visiting angels and Maxim healthcare. As well as Windsors Garden. I have also done private duty for a wonderful family and a lovely lady I took care of that had dementia and a stroke one year prior to when I care for her. In this work filed I have met a lot of different residents/clients and their family's. I know I'm doing my job right. Because when I'm done caring for them they request me again. I have saved a lot of lives as well. With me you know your loved ones are in good working hands. Its my job to make sure they are cared for right and you have a much easier life.
