I'm a very upfront outgoing person. I've been a Certified Nurse Assistant since I was 18 yrs old. I was helping my Mom out with my Dad during his battle with lung cancer. I enjoyed giving my Dad one on one care. I cared for him while my Mother was at work. Allowing him to be comfortable in his own home. After he passed I went on to take the CNA, CMA, Phlebotomy class at Kilgore College. I enjoyed mostly the one on one time spent with my patients. Getting to know them. I've worked in Long term care facilities. Prisons, Home healths, Assisted living homes. I mostly enjoy going into the homes as a Companion. Just giving somebody the option of staying home. Helping them with all daily living routines. Allowing them to still stay active. Giving them respect, dignity. Also giving them all my attention.
I have trained and worked as a CNA for over 25 years, which includes hospice. My experience far out way my training because of my desire to continually expand my skills and training, which adds to my services rendered to clients. There is no illness or disease I have not worked with. I will be a welcome asset to any client who acquire my services.
I have been a pastor's wife for 40 years and I love people. I have served people young and old in various capacities over the years, but for the last 10 years I have found great joy in serving the elderly. I have experience providing companionship, cooking meals, providing transportation, running errands, administering meds, staying overnight, and making my clients' quality of living the best I can. I have numerous happy clients/references and I have never been asked to leave any of my sitting positions. I have also served as a volunteer hospital chaplain and have been trained and received certification from the Southern Baptist Association "Hands on Ministry". I look forward to serving more clients as I relocate to the DFW area to be close to my children and grandchildren.
What make me be a great caregiver is the compassion and love that I have for people. What attracted me to being a caregiver was when I worked in the laundry at a nursing home and when I would take the residents their clothes and their call light would be on waiting for someone to help them, but no one would come, I would try and help them. That's when I decided to go get my CNA license. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is listening to my client talk about the good old days and their family and watch their eyes light up and see the smile on their face. The most personal achievement that I'm proud of as a provider is knowing that I was able to give a family member love one the proper care and love that they so deserve.
I have been caring for people for what seems like all my life. Since 11 years old I hehelped take care of my cousin that has arthritis and then again worked for her when we were older. I am sensitive to others needs whether it be physically or emotionally. On a professional level I have 6 years of Home Health and just got certified a Nurse Aide. I have worked for a nursing home in Longview for one year. I love the work I do.
I have always cared for my children, mother and grandmother. I love people and I feel good helping them. I enjoy being able to be with someone in need of companionship when the family is not around .I am proud to say that I went to collage and got my associates degree in Medical assisting. I feel I am more prepared to take care of my patients.
I see myself as a friendly person, who genuinely cares about others. I am usually quick to gauge the setting and come up with a good "Icebreaker". In those instances where I'm not sure about others, I'm shy and reserved until I determine my opening. I've held many jobs in my life. I hadn't found lasting personal satisfaction in any ;until I found myself talked into sitting with a 90 year old "country woman" and my journey began. I come from a prime example of honor and love in caring for others. My Mother has spent her entire life, since 5 yrs. old making a difference to someone in need. In no way had I ever seen, entertained or aspired to work in a nursing home, or with an elderly/disabled/hospice patient . It came about as my own road became narrower. I'd like to think I've found my purpose in working with those who can't do it all on their own. It is my goal to impart to each of those I've worked with that it is my Priveledge to be of service to them . I have a very simple code that I work and try to live my life by. That is : "Always Leave Someone The Way You'd Want to Be Left. " And, "Always Leave Something Better Than You Found It."
Hello! My name is Alicia. I am 30 years old with a wonderful family. I have been doing caregiving since I was 15 years old. I used to help take care of my grandparents and help them with baths. Being a caregiver is something that I am very compassionate about and I enjoy and absolutely love doing. I love the feeling of being able to help others.
Im a person who has a old soul & i love taking care of the eldery cause they have so much wisdom. They are so fun to be around. I love hesring stories of when they were younger or when they married, i feel i can relate. I became a caregiver at first to provide, but when i went into my first nursing home with my FIRST patient, we talked about eveything. he made me laugh so hard. And after all that He told me how much he appreciated me. That was 9 years ago & after i walked out of his room i instantly knew that being a caregiver is why i was put here on earth. Im here to help do what ever i can to help you & your family make things a little easier, to be a friend. To help with the daily activities that your loved ones nees help with. I one day will need the same help & i hope that I have someone as caring as i am to be there & help me when the time comes.
