About Kiantha

I pride myself on having compassion for all individuals and especially the elderly community. I believe in caring for individuals as if they were my loved one, or how I would want to be cared for later in life. I have worked in the healthcare field for over 10 years in various settings. I was attracted to healthcare early in life because I come from a background of nurses. I always enjoyed putting a smile on someone's face and contributing to their quality of life any way I could. As people age they sometimes lose family and friends and their sense of independence. I want to bring them happiness and encouragement while ensuring precise care when working with them. The best thing about being a caregiver is meeting new people and allowing them to feel safe. I enjoy hearing stories about their lives and taking in their wisdom. I feel that my experience over the years as a caregiver has humbled me and made a more well rounded individual. A personal achievement that I'm proud of would be the ability to adapt to a new position and be recognized for my outstanding customer service and work ethic at my current place of employment.

PCA Certified 2020 CPR/First Aid 2020 Why did I become a care giver? In 2003 I started working in an Assisted Living part time where I was trained in medication management and went to a training course on Alzheimer's. When I retired from the Federal Government I started working at places like Senior Corp and Visiting Angels. I decided to go private and my first case was hospice and my last case was care giving and hospice. What attracted me to care giving is my compassion, empathy, and the love of taking care of someone who needs my help. I am friendly, happy-go-lucky and full of life. I believe God led me to taking care of seniors and I have been doing this work over 10 years. What makes me a great caregiver is taking my job seriously, being on time, and doing schedules for all the caregivers, making sure the client does not run out of supplies and make sure my client is comfortable and happy at all times. A personal achievement I am proud is I was in the Newsletter at Visiting Angel where I received 10 because my client's son gave me a week off with pay around the holidays. This has never happened to any other caregiver at Visiting Angels. I am proud to go from caregiver to hospice because I want to make sure my client is comfortable and not in pain before passing.
