Originally I became a Certified Nursing Aide in order to qualify as a Primary Home Care Supervisor. As I began to bring clients onto service and place the aides into the homes to assist the clients with activities of daily living my heart was changed by the needs of these lovely people, my clients.
Caregiving is in my opinion is the most personal way to truly give back to the most frail of our society. It is incredibly rewarding in seeing the outcome of what some assistance will do!
I have been an Ombudsman in Long Term Health Care facilities for the state of Texas further helping be a voice for those who may not otherwise be able to speak for themselves. Being able to assure that a resident has the most basic of services and is treated with respect is among achievements of which I am most proud.
I bring 10 years of experience and ongoing education with private care clients. Acute Care, ALS, Dementia, Alzhiemers, Diabeties, Physical Therapy, Range of Motion and keeping clients engaged through activities of daily living. I routinely transport clients to Dr's visits, shopping, and their activities.
I am a Texan, born and raised, who loves the outdoors. I am an avid gardener and an enthusiastic long distant cyclist. I am fortunate to have great health and enjoy being able to help give some of my strength to those who need it.
