I worked at home health for 10 years before going to work at the hospital on an OB unit for 27 years and retired in January 2016 and just need to get back into doing some kind of health care I took care of my mom from May 2017 she had cancer and she died in July 2017 and I took care of her in her home until she passed away I like the personalization of taking care of someone in their own home. I have worked in a hospital long enough to know that my love of nursing is with the elderly in in their homes where they feel more comfortable I am proud that I spent 27 years in the hospital taking care of the younger patients but I enjoyed taking care of my mom and knowing that she did not have to go to a nursing home.
