About Iisa

My daily life and working in a hospital setting has given me skills and knowledge that has helped me become an expertise at caregiving for individuals and their needs. What attracted me to caregiving, is I do it daily as I take care of my elderly mother, who has had medical issues these past few years. Caring for her, has encouraged me to pursue a nursing degree, which I'm currently working on. What I enjoy most about caregiving is the interaction with the client/patient. I'm a people person and I enjoy being around others and communicating with them. The personal achievement I'm most proud of is having an Alzheimer's client of mine maintain their weight and not lose any pounds. It involved a lot of bribery, but it worked! His doctor was so happy with the results. :)
