About Jackie

My name is Jackie Burlison. When I was a teenager I did a lot of volunteer work with my church group at an assisted living home. At nineteen years old I decided I wanted to help people as my career choice so I went through CNA school and received my degree. I worked at Tacoma General Hospital for almost six years until I moved out of state. I am now back in Washington and searching for a new job opportunity working with Infants and Children. While at my job in Tacoma, I received their STAR award and two letters from Nurses recognizing my work ethic. I am looking forward to the future and what it has in store :)

    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 became a caregiver because my grandma and grandpa took care of me when I was a newborn. I wanted to give back. I couldn't take care of them because they past on and live long distance. So, I've decided I will give care and comfort where I'm needed. I love being a caregiver listening, understanding, laughing and being patience I learn and grow with each one of them. My personal achievement is knowledge in their stage of life. My name is Judith, I have been a certified nursing assistant since 2003.
