My name is Monique and I recently became certified here in the state of Virginia. I'm a very patient, loving and compassionate person looking to care for your loved one. I took my classes through the American Red Cross and did clinicals at mount Vernon rehab and nursing home. I love helping people and love building relationships. I've always wanted to become a nurse so I decided to become a nursing assistant while going to school for nursing to get my foot in the door with the medical field. I took care of my grandfather when he was sick. Taking care of him made me realize I wanted to do home care. I feel home care is great fit for me because I get to know my patient better and get to take my time with them where as in a nursing home setting the patient to nursing assistant ratio is much more difficult to have that relationship with the patient. Thank you for your time.
