About me: My name is Kimberly Kennedy and I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) for over 1 year. I have been a Caregiver for over 7 years, I have experience in, Senior living centers, care giving agencies and I have been a caregiver for people with various medical conditions. Personality traits that make me a great C.N.A are my abilities to communicate well with the people I am taking care of and to ensure I am doing my best in taking care of the person. Additionally, I work hard to be patient as a C.N.A so that the interactions I have with someone go smoothly. I also do empathize with the people I am taking care of in that way I make them feel welcome and appreciated, I do my best to pay attention to little details in case a problems occurs I can identify it ahead of time and communicate with the person in charge to try and resolve the problem. What attracted me to becoming a C.NA. it's the opportunity I would have to nurture for other people. I enjoy helping people and this was an opportunity to take care of people. What do you enjoy most about being a caregiver? What I enjoy most about being a caregiver are the conversations I can sometimes have with them. (if their medical situations allows). Most of the elderly are in vulnerable positions, having others take care of them, and It is important to have someone they can trust and talk to. I have learn so much from the elderly and they learn alot about me and my background. Most of the personal achievements I am proud of include being thanked by family members for the work I am doing. and they smile i get from them let me know i doing a good job as C.N.A.
