I am dependable, flexible, reliable, caring and conscientious. I believe each person should be treated with respect, positive encouragement and patience. Each day should be full of fun and a new adventure in the process of living life from day to day because they were created by God and special. I have a love and compassion for the geriatric population and love seeing a smile develop on each of their faces as we work together to make them feel whole and complete. I would like to apply for a job and be able to help seniors in their home. God has given me a special love for the geriatric population. I have 13 years experience as a Licensed Physical Therapist working with them in the skilled nursing facility and continuing care retirement community. I believe people are most happy in their homes where they are secure with their own surroundings. ... more

Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant

Kindred Rehab

Dec 2010 - Present

Physical therapist assistants (PTAs) provide physical therapy services under the direction and supervision of a licensed physical therapist. PTAs help people of all ages who have medical problems, or other health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. PTAs work in a variety of settings including hospitals, nursing homes, homes, and more. PTAs measure changes in the patient's performances as a result of the physical therapy provided. Care provided by a PTA may include teaching patients exercises for mobility, strength, and coordination, training for activities such as walking with walkers, canes, or crutches. We are also licensed in the use of physical agents and electrotherapy such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation. We also learn on the job to assist patients in bathing/dressing and toileting. ... more
