Certified Experienced Care Companion Available 7am-4pm Daily.
I started out at 16, knowing I wanted and thoroughly enjoyed caring for others. Initially it was loved ones, helping with basic house keeping to medicine tracking, diabetes blood sugar tests, and comfort measures. I unofficially worked helping loved ones and even friends of the family, loved ones for 4 years. Once my grandmother became Alzheimer diagnosed I took on the role of being her FT caregiver with the help of mt mother who was her power of attorney. I cooked, cleaned, assisted her in her daily activities, and her religious needs as well. Once my grandmother passed I decided I should become certified. I went in for training CNA course work and just under 2months I took my state Exam and passed on first attempt.
I have worked in nursing facilities before and prefer not to do it again, while it has many benefits the biggest con of nursing and rehab facilities is that there isn't enough staff for the proper care time. I believe in giving QUALITY, DIGNITY & RESPECT 24/7.
