Hello, my name is Addison Wallace and I am currently a junior at Radford University studying to become a RN. I am a very loving and caring individual and I treat everyone as if they are family. I really wanted to become a caregiver because I love that I can say "I helped that person," or "I made them smile!" I am extremely proud that I have worked in a long term skilled environment.
I am very good with people, I love talking and hearing elders stories. what attracted me most about being a caregiver is my mother had breast cancer and my great grandmother suffered from dementia and I've always wanted to be able to help people. Hearing stories and just being around others, learning new things and knowing that I am being companionship towards them. Becoming a CNA and making the elders I take care of happy.
Empathy and compassion. ... By showing both empathy and compassion as a caregiver will let the person I'm caring for allow trust also shows I care about the person and will do what I can to help them. Attracting me to being a caregiver was know the help I could bring. Also knowing one day I will need the same help. I enjoying almost every aspect of a caregiver. More so putting smiles on those faces who feel they have been forgotten. That's my achievement in this field making those happy, and feeling valued.
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.

Between my work experiences and personal needs of family and friends, I've spent most of my life as a caregiver. I raised two special needs children of my own while attending to my aging parents, including my mother with dementia. Shortly after the passings of my parents, I was the caregiver for my husband who eventually succumbed to COPD. On a volunteer basis, I've provided end-of-life care and post operative assistance. I'm very comfortable working with all ages. Other than heavy physical lifting, I'm capable and enthusiastic about providing care and support to a wide range of potential clients. My first aid and CPR were recently updated and I have extensive recent training in a variety of topics related to care giving, particularly with special needs children.

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..
1. I became a caregiver because I have a strong love and passion for helping and caring for others. I have long term goals of becoming a nurse, and I used to volunteer on the rescue squad. 2. I love being able to provide the help and care that others may need. Even more than that, I love the companionship, and love and friendship it brings you both. 3. Four years ago, my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I left my job to stay at home and care for her. I cared for her from the moment she got out of the hospital and was sent home with hospice. I was with her through everything, until she was bedridden and couldn't eat or even open her eyes. I stayed at her bedside, bathed her, changed her catheter, adult diaper, dispensed her medicine, and talked and read to her until she passed away in my arms. I did this along with being a single mother of 2 young children and providing support to my other family members. Since then I have been caring for my soon to be mother-in-law on my own time while working and caring for my children. It is a true passion that brings me joy and happiness that I can love and care for others. 4. I am 30 years old, and I am a mother of 2 wonderful children. I am a very empathetic, loving and caring person. I have recently decided to look into going to college for nursing to pursue my dreams. Losing my mother four years ago was the hardest thing I have ever went through but has surely made me a stronger person, and also made me very passio
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.
