Hello thanks for viewing my profile my name is Sajhresa Hill. I became a C.N.A. because I have a passion for caring for people I love making a difference in my clients life. When I see improvements in their daily activities I know that I have achieved my goal in providing the best care that I can provide. I treat my clients as I would want to be treated. I take my job ever serious I am reliable, caring, honest, respectful, and understanding, I have good communication skills and always go above and beyond what is required of me. Thanks for taking the time to review my profile and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Because I enjoyed and love working with people. Do the best to help them what they need. I enjoyed being care giver I treat my residents like my own family. We just move to Austin 3 weeks ago from California and when I leave my work in California i was very shocked and surprise that how I important I am to my residents, boss, and my colleagues because they all giving me support and comforts. Everybody's sad. That my achievement that they treasure me as caregiver, assistant adminstrator and co worker. And I will never forget them.
I have been involved in healthcare for over forty years. I believe everyone should be treated with respect and dignity and TLC. I am patient, compassionate, and cheerful and outgoing. I have worked along side hospice nurses and know how important it is to work with the families as well. My philosophy is that my clients, as well as their families, are treated as loved members of my family. I have been blessed by all that I have worked with and they have inspired me as well. I advocate for my clients and their families so that they can seek the best solutions and get help for any issues they are having. We all need to have someone in our corner. At the end of the day, I am humbled and grateful for everything in my life.
Caregiving came to me naturally in my younger years and I believe God has placed natural talents and gifts in all of us. I enjoy working with people and take my work seriously. I count it an honor to serve others and I hold myself accountable for the care I give others even how I communicate and relate to my clients and their families. I really do enjoy being a caregiver because I love to encourage others and to lift their hearts where I can. (I also believe that what goes around comes around and one day I may need someone to care for me and encourage me.) I am very proud of working in a hospital, learning to train the nursing staff on safety and patient handling techniques. I am now a single mom with children grown and living very productive lives. I am not married any longer so I have to restrictions on my time. I do prefer to work night shifts because I did this for many years as a single mom. (child care for 3 was cheaper this way so I have become accustom to working nights.) I do have very strong references upon request.
In 1981, when I was a five-year-old child, my mother became gravely sick with an illness her doctors could not diagnose. She often spent four to five months at a time in the hospital, recover enough to come home, but would fall ill again and again with no explanations. This went on for approximately seven years. During the time my mom was home my two sisters, brother, and I did everything we could to make her comfortable that we were capable of doing as children. Yet, seeing my mom in pain and so much discomfort instilled within me a tremendous sense of empathy and compassion. Despite the short periods of time she spent at home between hospitalizations, I developed a deep sense of appreciation for my mother because I missed her terribly. Thankfully, she finally came home and the relief was immense. My grandmother lived with us for 15 years due to her deteriorating health as a result of diabetes, cataracts, loss of hearing, and the loss of the ability to clothe and prepare her own food. I helped to dress her in the morning, attend to her left foot which she almost lost to gangrene. But we managed to heal it and she only lost her left big toe. She was still able to walk albeit with a walking chair. I loved to bake so I would make special desserts for her which she was allowed small portions. It was a great activity for us to bond together. She could watch me make it and give me tips. In college, I became a Caregiver for a quadriplegic man. Although, I didn't have experience caring for a paralyzed man, Michael told me he would explain what he needed on the job. My morning shift started at 7AM and I bathed his nude body, medicated his bedsores, emptied his catheter, performed physical therapy, and fed him his breakfast. If he had chores to complete during my shift, I'd dress him then move him from his bed to his wheelchair and into in his van. Once we finished his chores, I would put him back in his bed, remove his clothing, and clean his apartment.
My caregiver career started a little over 2yrs ago when I started working for a veteran with ALS. With so many changes happening in those two short years I've gained a lot of knowledge about ALS and the experience of caring for someone with limits. I consider myself to be a great asset to a family in need of support and care because I can provide assistance with daily activities, bathing/grooming, physical therapy, errands, appointments, and transportation. In addition to care I can also provide nutrition based on your dietary needs whether it's a blended diet given thru a feeding tube or simply meal prep for the week. I believe that a caregiver not only cares for the patient, but also the family. I'm reliable, friendly, trustworthy, and eager to help anyone in need!
Compassion, respect and making sure the person is treated with dignity. Have always been close to my older relatives, grandmother, aunts and feel I can show them the love and patience they need. Took care of my aunt for 13 plus years. Very proud that although at times it was difficult I could always find joy in the care of my aunt. I treated her like I would want to be treated.
I am a caring, loyal, reliable, patient, positive & trustworthy person. I love & enjoy care-giving, spending time serving & helping --working with families to care for their loved ones. I have had many experiences with my own family members dating back to 1994 as well, so I can completely understand & relate to what other families are going through. Those experiences & my long & extensive years working with many other families over time is what makes me an excellent caregiver. I have excellent work / personal references available immediately upon request.
I have had a life-long passion for working with adults who are differently abled, and have a great amount of compassion and empathy for such individuals. I started volunteering as a peer counselor when I was working on my bachelor's degree, and found it to be incredibly rewarding. After two more volunteering positions in human services, in addition to working as a case manager and caregiver with dementia-diagnosed clients, I decided that I wanted to dedicate my life to caregiving and social services, and continue this amazing journey. There is great satisfaction in being able to assist individuals who are in need of help to maintain a quality of life that they desire, in addition to helping people to better themselves. I am very proud of the work that I have accomplished both academically, in my community, and professionally. And lastly, here's a little bit about me: I have a BA in psychology and human services, and have aspirations to return to school for a doctorate in psychology. On a personal note, I am an artist in my down time, love my two dogs, appreciate the outdoors, am an avid gardener, and very much love cooking and baking.
