My life in the medical field began after my daughter's Grandfather passed away. After watching him suffer and not knowing what to do to comfort him I decided to become a paramedic. I have over 25 years experience in the medical field of which 12 years I was a paramedic and then began my journey to bedside nursing. I have special training in advanced life support, emergency care, cardiac care, Palliative care and hospice. Ive worked with patients that have Alzheimer's, dementia, sun downers, traumatic brain injury, ending stage renal failure, colostomy, ileostomy, and behavioral health concerns. I have taken many college level courses in psychology including the study of human pathophysiology. I'm a cancer survivor with a strong passion to help others. If you or someone you know needs a kind, compassionate, reliable and trust worthy Home Health Aide you have choose the right one. I have been offering companionship and caring for the elderly in their homes for 146+ years. I truly love what I do and find it to be very rewarding. My services will include light house keeping, laundry, grocery shopping, medication management/reminders, meal preparation, doctor appointments, house management including managing of all staff and errands as well as assisting with personal care. Most importantly I will offer companionship and conversation. Did I say I can cook? I do not live-in.
I understand the needs and desires of my clients. For those who need a little extra care or have chosen to remain at home, versus moving into a nursing home. I have a Florida Driver's License and a reliable car. I am 55 years young, born and raised in New York and moved to Florida over 16 years ago to be near my family. Expect nothing less than the best from me as I am devoted to giving the best quality care possible. I am a Certified Home Health Aide and a Qualified 'eligible provider' for Florida long term care insurance policies with 14 years of experience in home health care.

EXC. REFS. UPON REQUEST Have been in the Medical Field 30yrs, started from the ground up. First worked @ "JFK Hospital", when CNAs were "grandfathered in" as you were in Nursing Program & passed "Fundamentals of Nursing". After a particular point of the program, "Med-Surg Nursing" the Hospital considered you, a " Nurse Tech" , upon completion of the PBJC Nursing Program, I sat for RN-NCLEX. Didn't pass the 1st time. I was given a suggestion to sit for LPN Boards & passed them. Due to changes in health care structure, & financial issues, JFK wouldn't hire me as an LPN. It was bought out,and kept only certain amt of CNA's by Seniority, letting me go in the process. I had to wait till the area Nursing Homes would hire as LPN jobs were scarce & they were looking for RNs. I sat again for RN NCLEX, & passed and then applied @ a Rehab/LTC have been in either there, an ALF, 3 Nursing Agencies, several other Rehab/LTC & done Private Duty Care for 4 Elderly Parents & a Private Client for the past 10yrs as well.
I am also a Certified Florida Notary Public some of duties have helped Patients with Wills, End of Life decision Making etc.
My biggest thing about being a great Caregiver is treat the Client like they ARE your Family member,which earns their trust, & makes them MORE comfortable with you giving care to them. This way I can treat my Client as a "Whole Person" not just their Illness.This Includes: their Spirtual, Emotional, Psychological, besides the Physical Needs.
