About Samantha

Hello! My name is Samantha (Sam) and I am a scientists who would like to get back into care giving. In my early 20's I was in nursing school and worked in a nursing home and a couple hospitals in Columbus Ohio. When I was caregiving I particularly liked working with Alzheimer and Dementia patients, I found that people inflicted with these disease's need to preform normal everyday activities in order to remain comfortable and I am more than willing to help. I enjoy helping with personal care, picking up around the house, and helping prepare meals. The personal achievement that I am most proud of is, in one year I will be the first in my family to get a bachelors degree.
