About Stephanie

I am a very Compassionate person that loves taking care of people in General. I started caring for my Step Grandma when my Step Dad had passed away. I had this older woman needing my help and while I thought it would be a bother, happen to change how I thought about it. I loved being able to take her out to lunch and shopping. Knowing she had someone there to talk to and play cards with helped me see the Career change I needed to seek out. I love being around to talk to the elder and hear their stories. l love knowing they can depend on me to be there when they might have no one. My Personal Achievement I am most proud of is Making a Career Change and going to get my Home Health Aide Certificate.

Experience & Education

Jul 2017 - Feb 2020
Care Giver
I took on a role for my boyfriends Mother as her caregiver. She was living with him at the time with Cancer. She was eventually at the house with Hospice where they brought in a bed for her. I made sure her sheets were washed and she was bathed and put back into bed. She was also using a catheter drainage bag that was checked on and emptied. Before that I was up North taking care of my Step Grand Mother before I had to put her in a Home to move back to Florida. She was on Oxygen so I took care of that making sure it was on her properly and filled. Also she had Parkinson Disease.
