I completed my CNA classes about two weeks ago and now looking into getting into Home Health Care. I have a lot of patience and enjoy spending time with people. I love being there for someone's love one when they can't be, but they know that they are being well taken care of and watched over. I am very proud of finishing my CNA class with a 93%. I am scheduled to take my State Boards on June 9, 2018.
I have extensive experience caring for seniors and I am passionate about taking care of others. I cared for my blind, 80-years-old mother-in –law in Mongolia for 3 months in 2012. In addition to be a blind she has diabetes, high blood pressure and problem with walking. She had a lot of needs in her daily life but it was my pleasure to care for her because I deeply love her. From April to June 2013, I took care of woman who had a car accident in the USA. She was bedridden for three weeks and used a wheelchair afterwards. I helped her take her medications, took care of her hygiene needs, did her laundry, dressed her, cooked and helped her eat, took her out for walks and took care of her other needs until her condition improved. For about 8 months from July 2013 to March 2014, I worked as a caregiver to an 81- year-old lady. She had numerous health issues, including high blood pressure, glaucoma and diabetes. On a daily basis, I took her out for walks, cooked for her, and maintained her home in a good condition. I read to her, became a close friend and helped her stop feeling lonely. I applied her makeup, did her hair, dressed her, bathed her and helped her take her medicines always on time. I am spiritual, positive person and enjoy meditation. I love children, elderly, pets and nature. I personally feel fulfilled when I help others and care for them.
I have been a C.N.A. for now 2 years. I love what I do. My great grandma is who inspired me to be who I am today i took care of my great grandma for 5years she passed away 2years ago that's when I decided to do something i enjoyed doing. I wish I would have done the schooling when she was alive so I could have took better care of her i had no idea how to take care of prevent bed sores. No knowledge at all on bed sores.. But I did i know she would be proud of me. I treat my patients as if I'm taking care of my mom or grandma. I treat others how I want to be treated. I am good at what I do i do not mind working weekends or nights i am up for any shift. I work hard and always on time.
I have always enjoyed being a caregiver even when I was I young...I enjoy spending time with my great great grandmother. Talking, spending time and just helping always brought me joy. People always seem to forget about the elderly. They get older, they have families and they forget about grandma or grandpa..mama or dad. The elderly are still people...they still have feelings..they get lonely and they need help. I love to laugh and laughter is the best medicine. As we get older sometimes it's the little things that bring us happiness and I enjoy being able to bring that to people. I do have a 7yr old daughter. Has to leave by 7:25-3:25pm for school. So anything in between is available. Any other hours can probably be allowed in if my mother is available. She also works in health at a hospital.
I have been a caregiver for over 10 years. I have worked with seniors that suffer with ailments such as Diabetes, Dementia and Schizophrenia. It is important to remember that we as caregivers must have patience, empathy and understanding. A big part of our job is to make them feel good about themselves.
I became a caregiver to provide a much needed service to the elder in my area and surrounding county's. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. I like providing home caregiving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. Meeting new people and providing caregiving services that they can no longer do for themselves. My biggest personal achievement would be making the decision to go back to school. I am a student at a local community college majoring in an RN degree. I have been caregiving for 20 years and "still love what I do".
