Hello, my name is Bobbi Ann Friedman. I'm upbeat, have a lot of energy and have excellent interpersonal skills. I'm currently taking classes to get my Alcohol and other drug studies degree. I have a Bachelor's degree in Nursing and another Bachelor's degree in psychology. I get along great with all ages of people, especially the geriatric client. I volunteer at UCSD working with drug and alcohol addicts at the out patient psychiatric clinic. I love to help people and see that wonderful smile I often see when I'm working with all clients. I have worked in the field overseeing the caregivers and do ing evaluations on them. Also, I go to the patients home if there is a particularly difficult patient and help out the assigned caregiver. I worked in the office doing administrative work and hiring and orienting new caregivers. In addition, I do inservices for the caregivers at the office. I would go out to the hospitals to interview new patients who are going home and choose a caregiver who would fit the best with the client. I would contact the MDs if necessary to report changes of condition or just weekly status reports of the patients. I love to work with the patients. They are so much happier at their home rather than a hospital or facility. I am proud of myself for continuing my education and doing exceptional work with clients at home. I enjoy meeting the client's family and working with them to keep the family and patient happy. ... more
