To know that I'm giving my best to others in time of need is what gives me purpose. I became a caregiver for my mother, when she was recovering from several surgeries, in different skilled nursing facilities. All the while, making many observations concerning the staff and noticing their attention was not up to my standards of what genuine care should be. I knew then, that I could make a difference and was compelled to. Since, I've made strides in obtaining education with certifications; continue with on-line courses to keep me informed with state guidelines and any changes that occur in the health care field...because this is vital. Moreover, I sincerely feel this is my true calling; I find it very rewarding to nurture. I possess emotional and mental maturity necessary for establishing and maintaining a good working relationship with my client and the client's family. I also encompass dignity, patience, courtesy, integrity and a warm sense of humor. Oh! And I love to cook!
I've been a caregiver for over 18 years now! I have reliable transportation w/a Texas drivers license. My automobile insurance, CNA, TB screening and CPR are all current and in good standing
Thank you for the consideration. Well wishes finding the right fit!
