Ever since freshman year in high school, I have always wanted to do something that related to the medical field. First it was orthopedics and then pharmacy. I did not know that my mind would change to care giver until my junior year. I took a health science technology class starting my junior year. It was a two year class. Junior year was more focused on anatomy and physiology and Senior year we got to decide which path we wanted to go down. I chose the LNA path. I have always wanted to help people and going towards this path seemed like a sure-fire way to get there. I loved doing my clinicals at the two nursing homes near my school. It was an amazing experience. Knowing that I can help someone get through their day a little easier meant the world to me. Almost six years after graduating high school, I am still doing what I love and taking care of the people that need it the most.
I love to take care of people. I am naturally a nurturer and always feel happy about making a positive difference in someone's life and brightening someone's day. I am a good listener and I follow instructions very well. I am also very considerate and loving. Patient too and very understanding. I am definitely proud of the way i am able to get along with just about anyone. So i know that i will get along with my patients and their families as well.
I have become, what I consider myself to be, an amazing caregiver. I have a huge heart and i tend to put everyone I care for above and beyond everything else. I listen carefully to peoples needs as well as wants and do my very best to provide what is expected by them or the families NO QUESTION. I decided I wanted to be a caregiver at a young age. My grandmother was diagnosed with dementia and everyone in my family brushed it off as just 'old age'. Well, I wanted to learn more about this dementia and see what I could do to help better her life and the lives of others in this predicament. What I am proud of most is all the positive feedback from families as well as co-workers, managers included, about how great I am and how lucky a place or family is to have me. I have many personal achievements but the one I am most proud of, is I will ALWAYS and forever as long as I am caring for loved ones of my own or others, put quality over quantity. I have learned that people need good care no matter the life span, young or old.
Ever since I was a child I knew three things for sure. First I wanted to become a nurse, secondly a wife and last but not least a mother. I am definitely one of the lucky ones, who has been able to live my dream. I have worked in labor and delivery, NICU and hospice in hospitals at various points. I did stay home for quite a few years to raise my amazing 2 sons. About the time I was ready to get back into the workforce, life happens. I was diagnosed with cancer, and went through a divorce. These things only helped to give me the little push I needed to jump right back in head first. I can not put an exact pin on exactly why I enjoy at home nurse care, but it totally fulfills me. My patients are amazing, become family and give me so much joy. I enjoy helping them to enjoy life, all while allowing them to keep their dignity and not feel totally dependent on me. I am extremely reliable, and trustworthy. I can provide references as needed, and still I'm contact with most of my patients families. (One of my hospice patients daughter, myself and other aides still meet for dinner once a year). I do become emotionally attached, and make no excuses for it. I treat them as family, as how I would want someone to treat my parents. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions for me. Looking forward to speaking with you! ** Within the last 12 months I have had a background check as well as FBI fingerprints done when helping as a fill in school nurse at my youngest son's school.
Being there for a loved one, treating them as my own family has been a wonderful experience especially having to make them feel important. By showing both empathy and compassion i treat the person am caring for know that i care. Am patient, trustworthy, dependable, a good listener and responsible. Striving for independence is the major goal that i try to achieve in the clients that i work with.
Hi! My name is Diana Estevez, I am an LPN with 9 years of CNA experience. I Have been providing care for the senior population at home as well as in nursing facilities. Throughout the years I have found senior care is my passion. I understand that treating my elders with respect and dignity while providing the care they need and keeping them safe is most important to them. I want to thank you in advance for checking my profile. Please feel free to give me a call with any questions you may have about my experiences and certifications.
There is a level of trust and respect that needs to be nurtured between the caregiver and the person for whom l am caring. As CNAs, it is my responsibility to both earn that and convince the medical field at large to listen to what we have to say about the people for whom l care. When l notice changes in behavior or diet or if their moods are "off", it is often dismissed. At least in my experience. This needs to change and that is no small feat but it is a challenge to which I am very committed. l am honest, compassionate, caring and always on time.
