About Candace

Growing up initially i wanted to be a teacher because i liked kids but ironically I did not like school. But as I've grown older I realize I used to like children until I had my own . So now I don't like children and hate school. When I moved to Kansas the workforce center told me about this short 2 month college program to get this nurse aide license and it wasn't a scam. I tried it and loved it!! I am sooo ecstatic when I'm around my seniors I love them!! They look forward to me coming by and spending time with them. Taking care of them and just being there with them; , but they do not know how much they do this same exact things for me! I have shared so many laughs with my patients/ residents/ clients and have grown to love them dearly as if they are my own grandmother, (which i am very very close to by the way) and I go home and share all the funny things they say to me to my children. Since working with mostly the elderly, but not only them; I've also worked with mentally challenged individuals, rehab patients such as, paralyzed and/or bed ridden patients, patients that have been amputated, or just gotten out of surgery due to some kind of cancer, no matter their situation I've learned that I want to advance in Healthcare! Currently I am attending classes mon thru fri 8am-1230pm to be a medical assistant. But the best part is through this college with this course i don't just get my medical assistant cert. This school grants you 5 certifications along with that 1!!! I am sooo excited and grateful to soon be a EKG, Phlebotomy, clinical administrative, medical assistant, and of course BLS Certified woman!! I would love to be your Happily well experienced Caregiver!!

I am a compassionate person, with an ability to multitask and a good listener. my experience with elderly care gives me an edge on dealing in critical situations (if needed). The sense of positivity and feeling of empathy are rewarding factors according to me for being a caregiver. Also gives me a sense of personal satisfaction i get from helping the seniors. One of my best achievement would be - making a decision to save someone's life But Also Stan one of the residents dedicated a song to me and this is why I love being a caregiver as well.I love one on one interaction with others as well as I enjoy taking care of elder family members and would like to help others in this way.
