* All forms of personal care and assistance I worked for my nephew, who had MD, as a "chore/companion" aide. He was a very bright spot in my life. We hung out together. We watched a lot of movies, and awful tv shows. I did his bidding regarding his surroundings such as dusting and re-arranging his different collections. I ran errands quite often. I helped with housekeeping and laundry. I acquired Nurse Delegation in order to assist him with his meds and feeding and breathing methods, along with using a Hoyer lift for transfers.

The world exists upon the kindness showed by others, and that this kindness keeps alive the souls of those needing care. What I like about being a caregiver is that, for clients who cannot do many of the things they used to do, like running around and getting things done to take care of their families--life now begins anew based purely upon things that matter now today-- the worth, the thoughts, and the amount of attention that is paid toward them. This is a time of really focusing only on the present moment, and it takes a certain degree of concentration even to do that, sometimes. They are now the person who need this the most. My greatest personal achievements are when clients, who experience a decrease in function, and sometimes can hardly move or talk, are the most appreciative for my attentiveness to understand them. The story of the Good Samaritan identifies a good neighbor as one who shows kindness, and the rewards write upon the heart and soul. Caregivers are to the aging population a group who recognize that aches and pains are not going to go away. What some call a disadvantage, or disability serve, in many ways, to be an advantage because we shift our focus and attention toward what is really important in life-- people and how they are treated. I am only one of many like-minded caregivers who believe that a moment of clarity with loved ones--paying attention to the good in the moment--is the same as finding diamonds in your own backyard. Thanks for hiring through the Carelinx network!

I have been a CNA for over 29 years. I love interacting , caring and supporting patients and family members. My grandmother was a nurse and in my eyes a living Saint. She was my biggest role model in pursing a medical career and continuing to learn and educate myself with the passion I have for my career.
