I was inspired to go back to school and obtain a degree in Healthcare Administration, due to my own son being blind and non-verbal, only to discover my real passion was working hands on. I enjoy simply knowing I am helping someone to be able to continue to live in their own home. Their comfort is very important to me. Having to take care of my own son has taught me how to be more patient, loving, understanding of others. Sometimes you have to put yourself in the other person's shoes in order to truly understand the situation. Even though I don't have a license, and I'm not a registered nurse...I have been caring for a disabled person for 19+ years, I do everything even administering medications. I have taken and passed the CPR class and I am certified. I truly believe I could be a help to someone in need of care for themselves or their loved one....Thanks for you time.
