I have been involved with caring for seniors over the past 14 years. This began simply as a way of lending a hand as needed to those in my neighborhood. Discovering my natural affinity in skillful and compassionate care, I offered my time and services where it developed into part-time work. In February 2016, an opportunity presented itself through the American Red Cross Nursing Assistant Training Program where I obtained necessary training to complete the course with honors, graduating as a Nursing Assistant with First Aid/CPR/AED Certification. I have a great deal of respect for our elderly and those who are in need of convalescent care who simply wish to stay in their own homes as independently as possible. I wish to provide my experience, encouragement and support for dignified care. My availability for part-time work is as follows: Mon.-Fri., AM hours only up to 1pm. DURING THIS TIME OF COVID-19, I HAVE BEEN USING A MORE STRICT & TIMELY DEGREE OF GUIDELINES SINCE THE BEGINNING THIS VIRUS CAME TO BE A HEALTH RISK TO KEEP MY CLIENTS SAFE & HEALTHY. I CONTINUE TO REMAIN HEALTHY! Thank you for your consideration in this difficult time! ... more
