About Lena

hello, i enjoy sitting with my elders and hearing the stories from their time. we can learn a great deal from the stories our elders share with us. I can multitask pretty well when needed though the safety of my patient comes first and foremost so if it comes down to doing dishes or following my patient who is on an adventure today ill follow my patient. i am trained in first aid, CPR, and AED (the portable machines they use to restart your heart). i do well with kids (i was actually and am still currently a child development specialist with a certificate to work with special needs children) running around my feet if they come to visit my patient. i can take my patient to run errands or even help them get to dr. appointments so long as its in town and not in the city. I have many veterans in my family both older and younger and i have adapted to the blunt unsugar coated way they speak and even the mood swings some of them have due to war related problems so i dont get my feelings hurt very easy nor do i expect my patients to be sweet and kind 24/7. one of my personal achievements that i am proud of aside from being a domestic abuse survivor and raising my 5 wonderful kids on my own is that while i was in my marriage with my abuser i still managed to be able to care for my step mom on her death bed. the hospice nurses taught me a lot and i stayed alongside my father for 2 weeks helping take care of my mother by choice and comforting my father the best way i knew how. i learned a lot and i grew up a lot in those 2 weeks taking care of my infant, my mother and even my father. i carried the weight for our family to help as much as i could to make it less stressful on my father who was slowly watching the love of his life fade away. i learned then that i wanted to help people for a living. its not always easy but its always rewarding even in the most heartbreaking of moments.

I distribute meds as needed to my students. keep the room clean and sanitized. I serve meals to the students (breakfast, lunch, snack). I lay them down for naps, change diapers, and potty train. I make lesson plans and teach them. I also have lots of paperwork to fill out both online and on paper (daily health check, meal counts, diaper logs, safety transition check lists etc.) I keep a good open line of communication between the parents and myself to ensure the best outcome for the child's education and well-being

I am a very compassionate individual. I'm very reliable. I find working with the elderly very rewarding plus I like to make a difference in their quality of life. I enjoy making them laugh, sharing stories just spending quality time with them.

I know that I'm a great caregiver I show the same type of respect and love as I do as a family member I treat everybody the same because they deserve to be treated with respect. The reason I became a caregiver is because I saw what my father and my grandmother went through and I wanted to make sure that the way my father and grandmother were taken care of is how others should be with love and give all my best. What I love about being a caregiver is that I know I do my job right if my client is happy then that is all that matters. My personal achievement is knowing that when I leave my client's house that they were well taken care of I love to make sure that they are safe and I leave them with smiles.
