Skills & Certifications: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
I came into the caregiver role by accident. My best friend asked me to help out in a home she was working in with a widowed woman with MS. That was when I realized that I really enjoyed taking care of others. In this home I had the most variety of responsibilities. Throughout my HHA time I have worked closely with quadriplegics as well, gaining experience with ventilators, feeding tubes, catheterizing and ROM. I like the relationships I have developed while assisting people with their care and every day needs. About six years into my home health aide career I received my CNA certification, which I allowed to expire as I changed career paths. Within the last couple of years I have realized that home health care is where I belong. I am empathetic which gives me an "inside" look if you will to better assist people. I am willing to learn new skills and always willing to assist any way needed.
I believe that I'm a great caregiver because I do the right thing and have been in this field for over 20 years making a difference in someone's life is extremely important to me. I start taking care of people at a young age as I was raised by my elderly grandparents.
