I became an LPN in 1992. My career as a nurse was primarily in assisted living, Alzheimer's assisted living and nursing homes. I hurt my back, at home, in 2003 and have had surgeries to correct slipped discs. I can, however, help care for people where lifting is not required. I've been working for a man who had a stroke for 5 years as of 10/2019. They are a wonderful family and will gladly give a reference if requested. I also worked around 4&1/2 years for a lady who cares for the elderly in a couple of houses she owns in Aurora. I had to leave there in August 2019 as lifting was becoming inevitable there. But I did enjoy it. I did light cleaning, laundry, medication administration, light dressing, toileting and cooked and served meals. I also provided simple companionship. I also cared for my elderly grandparents. My grandma had Alzheimer's. It was very difficult for me but, I was extremely close to them and loved them dearly.
Greetings! I am excited about caregiving because I like to help others in a meaningful way; two experiences that I found extremely rewarding were volunteering in the nursing home (as a high-schooler) and serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer. People who know me would describe me as kind, dependable, and patient. I would bring a high level of care and strong work ethics to working with your loved one. I have a background in practical nursing, currently work in public health, and seek a part time caregiver position.
Hello! My name is Astrid and I'm a newly graduated RN waiting to study and pass my boards. I currently hold an LPN license from 2017 and a CNA certification from 2014. I've always loved helping others and I feel this is why I so strongly gravitated towards nursing. I take pride in the years I've put in to get to where I am at today and I cannot wait to learn and experience more!
I am an LPN with over 10 years of experience. While I have worked primarily with pediatric patients, I do have experience as a CNA with elderly patients. I am looking to provide one on one care while working around my home schedule, as I am also a mother to a wonderful 2 year old boy :)
