I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping people in need. It is very rewarding helping other people. I have had a CNA license but it has been awhile and I have not had it renewed. I have a Associates Degree in Computer Science. I am a Christian lady with 6yrs. experience in caring for the elderly. I am a very caring and compassionate person. I believe in giving my patients the best of my care. I enjoy reading a good book, watching a good movie and spending time with family and friends. I also like to try and stay in shape.
I was born with an overabundance of empathy, compassion, and a drive to provide love , care, and companionship to the elderly, special needs childen , and animals ! Starting at the age of 10 years old and in elementary school, I volunteered to be in the reach program at Grandin Court Elementary that paired me with special needs students as their " care buddy " I proudly escorted them to their buses and made sure they were belted in securely in their seat, assited with teaching them how to tie their shoe laces , brush their hair , and escorted them to the restroom and back to class as needed. I read them books , I included them in conversation and play time whenever I could. I chose to eat my lunch with the special needs children every day. Even in high school I sought enployment at Elm Park estates retirement home where I prepared and helped with meals , worked with dementia residents ,parkinson, cancer fighters and survivors. I coordinated fun activities like board game day, card games, walks, and even a dance ! After high school, I provided care to an elderly male with stage four colon cancer and dementia for several years until sadly, he passed on. I later assisted a 92 year old hospice patient with spoon feeding after meal prep, errands , medication reminding , light house keeping, laundry, dressing, and bathing, transportation, attending her doctor appointments and reporting her health and status updates to her family. I worked with her for five years when she passed on. I have always been dependable and punctual as I respect others time and know how critical my job is. I treat all as if they were my own mother, father , or child ! I am an advocate for all who cannot speak up for themselves.

I am good at my job.. It shows in the care I provide for the patient, and how they interact and respond to me as well. I love helping people in anyway I can. God has placed a genuine desire in me; it does my heart good to know that the care given is making a difference in someone's life. Knowing that someone has a need and you have the ability as well as the skills to help them is awesome to me. I'm proud of being able to put a smile on someone's face, I'm proud of helping someone wether it's helping them feel better about themselves like assisting with: walking, going to the bathroom, bathing, or just having a ear to listen. I consider all of these things to be personal achievements.

I am a nurse aid, about to take my CNA certification test this month. I currently work for Home Instead Senior Care. I provide both personal care and companion care. I have additional training in caring for Alzheimer's and Dementia patients and most of the clients I currently care for have this. I also have additional certifications in Arthritis care, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) care, and shower safety training. I have a bright, bubbly, uplifting personality. I love to care for others. I always treat my patients with the same respect and care that I would my own grandparents. I am willing to work around other's schedules, and can accommodate special and unique needs. I get along well with family members and children, I also love animals. I have my own transportation and am prompt. I always try to go the extra mile to better the lives of others.
Since my teen years I have wanted to become a nurse because of my love for people and caring. During the summers of 2011 and 2012 I worked as a volunteer Certified Nurse Aide in Zambia at a hospital for children with curable disabilities. This experience confirmed my love for nursing and then in 2012 I began taking pre-nursing courses and I will start Radford`s Nursing program in the fall. Nursing is so much more than just the science and the vital signs. Nursing the whole body approach to caring for sick and hurting people. I have learned so much through the patients I have cared for about life and wisdom and that knowledge is a gift I will never forget.
I have been a caregiver going on thirteen years! I love every second of it.. It's nothing like seeing the joy on someone's face who is in need of care, or that extra care and support. I enjoy knowing my work is appreciated and it's needed.. I never saw myself in this field as a child. As I proceeded to get older and seeing the old or young in need of help it made my heart ache for them. I just pray that in my golden years I find the same care of joy and compassion the same as I enjoy to give to others..
I became a State Tested Nurses Assistant in 2015 back when i still lived in Ohio full-time. Since then I have worked in two nursing homes and worked for a home health agency, where I aided the residents/clients in their activities of daily living. What I love most about being an Aide is getting to know my clients/residents and hearing about their life story. I love being able to provide care to people who can not be fully independent so that they are able to stay in their family's residents longer. Recently, the state of Virginia recognized my Ohio state certification as a nurse aide.
