I have personally dealt with over 15 hospice situations and made the end of life transition smooth and dignified and compassionate for all involved.

I am compassionate at heart and have natural passion to care for aging seniors and those that are physically, emotionally and mentally challenged. It is my great pleasure to see, especially seniors, age with smooth independence, dignity and peace . I believe Carelinx is best media for me to get best opportunities for my heart-desires. Apparently, while growing up as a teenager, in my parents's home, and living with a very ill grandmother, I had no choice but naturally gained a caring-heart, as well as gathered some kind of nursing-discipline, just to help my very sickly grandmother with chores of companionship, some activities of daily-living like bathing, safety-precautions while walking around the house and out in the yard, when my parents were busy with their corporate jobs. Personally, I am kind, patient, reliable, skilled for my job and professional. Having acquired 18 years nursing experience working as a Certified Nurse Assistant/Caregiver, I have worked in a Nursing Home setting, Assisted Living Facility, as well as a Home Health agency, and have the following Certificates: High School Diploma Certified Nurse Assistant Certificate Nurse Delegation Certificate 2017-12 hrs of Continued Education Credits CPR/First Aid Certificate Infection Control Certificate Completed 7-hours HIV/Aids education Clean Chest X-ray record Two-forms of ID identification Valid Drivers Licence Valid auto Insurance
