About Jessalyn

I am 20 years old, and I wanted to become a caregiver because I thoroughly enjoy helping people in need. I plan to become a Registered Nurse so I can further my career in care giving. I am patient when it comes to taking care of the elderly, I am highly respectful of them and let them set the pace when there is a certain everyday living activity we are accomplishing; I do my best to encourage them and let them make decisions about their care so they can stay as independent as possible, and it is my personal goal each day to walk in with a smile on my face to ensure that my patient and their families know I am more than happy to help them in any way that I can. I am also very understanding when it comes to families worrying about certain things with their lived one(s) and do my best to assure them that I will always keep my patient's best interest at heart. I do my best to comfort families during the grieving process when their loved one(s) pass away by praying for them and telling them they will be in my prayers, and that God will be with them through the difficult time.

Experience & Education

Elderly sitter/Home Health Aide

Mar 2017 - Present
Southern Care Hospice
My job was to assist the hospice patient with everyday living activities, give medication at the designated time, and take the patient's vital signs if needed. I am still on the sitter's list with this company, but I do not currently have a patient. I take care of patients until the family no longer needs my assistance.
