I have been a Registered Nurse for 38 plus years. I have worked on medical, surgical ( with pediatric) units as well as labor & delivery, nursery & care of mom's recovering from deliveries. I have personal experience caring for immediate family members who have mental illnesses, diabetes, stroke, heart attack, kidney failure , dialysis & dementia. I worked at a local hospital for 18 years, then at a physician's office doing phone triage. I then became a school nurse for 11 years caring for grades 3, 4 & 5. I knew I wanted to be a nurse since I was 3 years old & never wavered. I began working at 16 years old as a nurses aid. I am a compassionate caregiver who gives her heart & soul to whom ever I am caring for. My job performances have always been average to above average. My job as an RN did not stop when I got home. I cared for my brother for 35 years till he passed from a multitude of illnesses, many of which are mentioned above. I cared for my Mom when she became ill with dementia. I want very much to continue helping & caring for others but in a different capacity as a companion. Less paperwork & more time with your loved one no matter their age. My focus is always on the individual I am with & my care is individualized to suit their needs. I am awaiting my background check as of January 15, 2019. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for considering me as a candidate to care for your loved one. My patients have always been treated as I hoped my parents, children and siblings would be.

Good Day, my name is Susan Headley and i was quite delighted to come across your site CareLinx . Reading all the beautiful reviews about this company and being happy as a caregiver ,making your clients and their families happy as well. As of now, i am currently a widow since losing my beloved husband William 4 years ago from cancer.We have two beautiful sons who are now 18 and 16 plus years old. i do know that i am a very compassionate, patient, understanding, very kind and caring individual who is willing to please others first than myself. At this point and time being home for two years having the privilege to be able to be home with my two sons, I understood that this was truly a blessing for me and my sons to survive without their dad being with us. However, deep down inside i felt that i needed a change of profession from teaching and being around young children after five years working with the Board of Education and two years working as a case manager for a non-profit organization. These were two very challenging stressful jobs that i thought i would never look back in going to. Since my husband's passing i felt that i needed a change of thought in doing something that was so peaceful and compassionate as giving care to the elders. I truly feel that i needed something like this moving forward . Thank you and i look forward to being part of your team one day. Fondly, Susan Headley
