About Lucinda

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.

Experience & Education

Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant

Dec 2010 - Present
Kindred Rehab
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.

I've had a passion for personal care since I was 15 years old. I lived in Bolivia and volunteered at a convent where the nuns picked up abandoned and homeless elderly and took them to a beautiful nursing home to care for them. There a nurse who knew I loved medicine, took me under her wings and trained me as a CNA. I became a PA in the 1990, but I got a job as a care giver during the time I was home schooling my kids to works night on the side besides my PA work. I love the elderly. I also was blessed to be able to care for my mother who had terminal cancer and finally passed after 3 years. Last year I had the opportunity to work in my field in a Nursing Home and loved every minute of it. I have an Aromatherapy certificate and I am certified to do Aromatherapy essential application in light massage.

I love to smile some people say I do it too much I don't know how that is possible though. A smile goes a long way. U never really no how much a smile is worth tell u work with the elderly or help someone who was just having a very bad day. I became a caregiver cause my mom use to take me to work wit her when I was young and the hugs and the love I got from all those grandma's and grandpa's I thought I was in heaven and the stories thy would tell me I new at 9 that I was ment to take care of people and I've been doing it for 21yrs and still going strong I got my cna licence in 1999 about a year after I graduated . The elderly and children have always held a big spot in my life. I'm a very big advocate for them both. I'm not the very best but I do my best. I make sure everyday I get up I try to wear someone else's shoes cause u never know what it's like tell u have walked a mile I someone else's shoes we would not b here if it was not for the elderly
