I have about 32 years of experience being a caregiver. I use to own my own Caregiver agency but, it took me away from providing personal care to my clients, I decided to give that up so I could work closer with the client. I've provided care for individuals with MS. I currently work part time for the State of Washington as a certified Care Giver & I have a couple of part time clients . I feel & have been told I'm a great caregiver because I think of others first, filling the needs of others before myself. I think the best way to be a affective caregiver is to really have consideration for the fact that, it could sometimes be Very humiliating having someone to provide care for you & to treat others as you want to be treated. I always talk to my clients and helping them to see that I do understand how it feels to be able to once have done things for yourself and now to have to rely on someone else. I also forgot to mention that I have a daughter who lives with me, she's now 30 and she's been on dialysis for about 10 years and so I have quite a bit of experience in the medical field. I was also certified as a CNA for about 20 years I am not currently certified but, have loads of experience working with the elderly, I've worked on my own, in nursing homes & hospitals. I've worked for the State of California in a Veterans home for about 10 years just prior to me coming to Seattle. I've been in Seattle for 14 years.
Wanting a licensed NURSE to have that extra security? Helping others heal us! Life taught me this lesson when I was 16 years old and working as a CNA during high school. Every time that I would help someone improve their situation, I would get this great sense of well-being. The patient becomes the healer and over a decade later with a LPN license and college degrees, it still holds true today. So, why do I choose to be a positive influence and promoter of greater health? It's simple. I have to do it. It is in my blood that pools into my heart and traverses the depths of my soul. I enjoy caring for others as much as I like breathing. Hi, my name is Quiana (Key-anna), and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
