Profile

Hello, I'm a Certified Nursing Assistant. I obtained my certification in October 1994 at a Nursing Home facility in the state of New Jersey. I am caring, warm, and very patient, and have extensive years of experience working in nursing homes, rehab hospitals, sub-acute hospitals, assisted living and private homes with clients/residents/patients of all ages and from all walks of life. Most of the individuals had different types of illnesses, including brain injury, strokes, alzheimers, dementia, trach tubes , heart problems, paralysis care, and maintenance of feeding tubes/peg and gastric, and mental illnesses. I enjoy working in the healthcare field, by simply giving back to others by delegating my time and efforts in providing the best possible care to those in need, whether it's someone looking for companionship, personal care or offering a comforting touch. I was partially raised by my grandmother in Texas, and at that time had to assist her with caring for her mother which was blind in both eyes. That lasted for about seven years, but I learned a lot, even how to cook at age nine. I believe that a little time and effort can enhance and improve a person's quality of life and longevity, and that's important. In return I feel grateful in knowing that at the end of the day, I've made a significant difference in someone's life.
