I am a certified Home Health aide, after retiring from the state of Ohio, had a business which is now defunct and decided to take a nurses aide course. This was completed successfully. Worked for 5 years as a Home Hlth Aide, with an agency for 4 years and in a private home for a year. I decided on Home Health because wanted to help other who are ill to be able to stay in their homes. Have always enjoyed being around older adults. I am a high school graduate with some college and will be taking online courses in the near future. I received accomendations for outstanding service while working at an agency and a senior center.
