I am a 36-year-old mother and wife. I have been taking care of the elderly for 17 years . My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's when I was just a kid . She is the reason for what I do today . I went on to get my CNA right after she passed . My passion is taking care of people . I've worked in nursing homes , private homes and the university of Minnesota hospital. My most recent job was with a wonderful couple in their home . The wife passed a few years back due to a stroke . I stayed taking care of her husband up until this December . I have excellent communication skills , I am a fast learner , I have experience with Alzheimer's, Dementia , MS , stroke , ALS , traumatic brain injuries and so much more . I take pride in being a great caregiver . I am easy going , friendly and outgoing . I love to cook , I'm wonderful at staying organized and keeping things tidy . I am very punctual . Being on time is very important to me .
