About Dorothy

I became a caregiver because I have a compassion for caring for others. What I like about being a caregiver is when that smile come back at you, that tells me job well done and that in itself is an achievement. I am a certified nurse assistant/ home health aid, certified medical assistant, and CPR. I have experience in caring for terminally ill , clients with mental and physical disabilities like Alzheimer's and other forms of Dementia, and stroke patients. I like using stimulations to improve the mental and physical state of those I care for.
