About Beverly

Hi, I have a nursing degree and spent 12 years in the acute care setting including cardiac care. I worked in the electrical field for the last 22 years but once a nurse, always a nurse. I moved to the Ocala area last year with my old draft horse. I need a part time job to cover her expenses here. I live just a few miles from On Top of The World. I have reliable transportation for medical appointments. I can clean, cook, help with shower or bath, empty catheters and ostomy bags. Pet care is also welcome. I can also do small repairs in your home. I'm a very effective advocate for my elderly mothers health care. I enjoy people. I have a holistic view of health. I think positive social contact, fresh air and good nutrition are important for all of us. If you're able to swim I'd be happy to help you get into the pool if cleared by your doctor. I have seen that be very helpful for joint pain and mobility issues. If you'd like to furnish the veggies and fruit I have a Vitamix. A green smoothie every day is a great thing. I think staying in your own home is the best place to be if possible.

    I love to listen & learn from elderly people. They have so much wisdom & have lived interesting lives & I love to listen to those experiences. Once I had my back injury ( as an x-ray tech) I could no longer work 10-12 hr. shifts so I looked for a second career. A friend was doing Home Health Care for a Ms. Helen over the Christmas season & needed time off to be with her family. I was to fill in for 10 days but ended up staying for 4 years until I moved to Florida. I love working 1 on 1 with a person & their family. It is a joy to see them make little improvements along the way or just a big smile or thank you for making their favorite food or meal. My personal achievement is knowing I gave 100% to my client & treated them like a family member. All my clients have been females & I treated them the same as I would treat my Mom; however, recently I have worked with a gentleman with Dementia. Each person is unique in their own way, a real person with feelings & emotions & I am always caring about their dignity & appearance. Clean & ready every day to accept a friend stopping in for tea.
