Patricia Buie has a real passion for helping people and being a caregiver. It was obvious to others when she worked in customer service for the telephone company, where she always was willing to take time on the phone to talk people through their problems and make sure they were being taken care of. Her skills were under-utilized at that job, so when her friends talked her into going back to school for her CNA license, she decided it was worth a try.
“When I got into school and started taking classes, I realized this was something I really wanted to do,” Patricia says. “I know some people work for the money, but in this job, it’s more than just a pay check to me. I see a need and feel like maybe I’m making a difference in someone’s life. Patricia has worked with Piedmont Home Care for six years, and in that time she’s had three clients. Each time she begins working with someone new she enjoys the opportunity to get to know that person and become a part of their life.
“You really form a personal bond with that person, and the time you share with them is so special,” Patricia says. “I work really hard to take care of the people I stay with, and they learn to depend on you and count on you. I’m with them as much, if not more, than their own family, and it’s like they become family to me.”
