About Ligia

I have worked with elders in a Nursing Home since 2004 First worked for two years as activities and in 2006 started working as a CNA in the same facility with patients with schizophrenia, alzheimers, stroke, cancer, heart, and hospice care patients. From 2008 to 2016 I have worked with patients diagnosed with cancer coordinating the schedule of the patients for consultation with the oncologist, providing translation as necessary information for their visit and future treatments. In addition I assist the facility nurse with the patients when needed. I enjoy the smiles I can bring to my patients even in trying times. I love to work with people. I am flexible, kind, dependable, patient, and love to help. I have experience acompany patient to and from their respective doctors appointments too.
