I have always wanted to work in the medical field and felt that becoming a CNA would be a great place to start. I first knew that being a care giver was what I wanted to do when my grandmother became very sick and had to be cared for 24/7. I helped care for her so she could stay at home and not have to go to a nursing home. Even when it was not my day to be with her, when it was time for her to have a bath, she called on me and I gladly went and helped her bath, dress, and fix her hair. It was very rewarding to know that just by simply giving a bath and fixing her hair that I made a difference and so I took a CNA class at a local nursing home so I could do the same for others. The work can be very hard but at the end of the day I am able to look back and see all that I have done how it was truly appreciated by my patients and that makes it all worth while for me.
I am very dedicated to the company I work for and especially the people in my care. I am dependable and am able to see a patient if called on at the spur of the moment if needed. I do not call out of work unless it is absolutely necessary. I can count on one hand the times I have called out of work in the past year. I believe the experience I have as a CNA in the nursing home setting, hospice, and home care has prepared me fully for the qualifications you are looking for in a caregiver for your company.
