About Joan

A care giver is someone who cares, provides needs. comforting people, and making apart of someones day worthwhile. I took care of a lady with dementia with all her needs when she was no longer aware I placed her in a lovely residence which was an old motel and she could walk out to a garden. I continued to visit her till she passed. I was a nurse for 30 years most of my time in a hospital. I left their and did agency work mostly with seniors and I loved what I was doing. I moved to Florida and worked at the State VA Nursing home for 5 years and went back to working with seniors and private homes with seniors that needed care. I no longer have my nursing license but find the need to care for others who need help

    I have a very natural nurturing skill and I find pleasure in caring for the most vulnerable, the elderly clients. I provide excellent care to ensure my clients health, safety and mental stability. I love people and I have always felt that you treat people the way you would want them to treat you. With respect, Dignity, compassion and a willingness to listen to them. Recently, I was caring for an elderly client who was admitted into the hospital, 97 years old the Doctors told her family that she's failing and that they recommend a feeding tube and sending her home on hospice and making her comfortable . The night before they were to do the surgery to insert the feeding tube I called the family and told them they would be doing her an injustice if they allowed that. I explained to them why I felt that way. I also told them what I thought should be done if they wanted her to be comfortable. She's still alive and eating regular meals and getting stronger every day.
