About Cheryl

I love being a caregiver because I believe I am making a big difference in people's lives. Seniors really want to stay in their homes and familiar environment but need a bit of help. Their families feel good knowing their loved ones are being helped by a caring and responsible adult who also provides companionship. It helps take some of the responsibility off of them. I feel good knowing they appreciate me and enjoy seeing me. Many clients asked specifically for me when I worked for Synergy. It was really easy for me to become attached to them and want to do the right thing for them. In terms of special achievement, I was the first person in my family to go to college. I have a BS in Psychology but enjoy working part time as my children are growing. Another hugh accomplishment for me was having my twins at 46. We had doggedly gone through three year of fertility treatment but I refused to give up. My twins are now 12 years old and no longer need as much attention. I am also half way through my EMT training course. I feel it will help me attend to clients because so many of them have medical issues that come up. I would feel comfortable knowing that if a client was having a heart attack I would be able to help them. Person information: I am a mother of three - a daughter who is 35 from my first marriage, and my boy/girl twins who are 12. I have done substitute teaching for a couple of years and have also worked with special needs children. I worked

    I became a Caregiver because I feel like I am making a difference in someone's life. A smile, touch or words of encouragement can add so much to the life of a sick or elderly person. This kind of connection makes my job more than what it is and that gives me personal satisfaction. I like being a Caregiver because I enjoy meeting new people, and no 2 days are the same. I'm proud of graduating from CNA school at the top of my class and passing the state CNA class on the first try. I am married with 3 very active teenage boys. I enjoy being an active mom in their lives. Originally I am from Naperville, Illinois. My husband's company transferred to Fort Worth in 2008. I have had various other positions. Late summer last year was when I started my studes for my CNA career.

    I love helping people and making their lives that much more productive. It gives me such happiness to help someone else. I am a very caring, warm and friendly person. I have had 3 children, a mom who was 87, and a few other clients that I have cared for and enjoyed every minute of it. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you! God bless!
