I became a caregiver because I like taking care of others. I like being a caregiver because no matter how my day is going when I see the face of someone who needs my help makes my day to help them. One of my personal achievements is getting my cna liscence ive always wanted to be a cna because my family does it too. I have been a cna for 9 months I worked in an assisted living facility making 10 dollars an hour and absolutely loved it I just put notice in and left because I simply could not do the hours they wanted me to work. They had me working so much I didn't have time to sleep and I wanted to be the best cna I can be and I cant do that without sleep..they where working me 65-75 hours a week and it just drained me. so im looking for something a little more layed back to mabey 50 hours a week or less. Im good with toileting, bathing , medication reminders, running errands , laundry, light house work..ect.. I studied at Bedford science and technology center for three months and am certified in cna and cpr. I did 40 hours of clinicals at the county home and oakwood mannor.
