Initially, I was hired to provide companion care for Larry, an elderly man with mobility problems, Parkinson's, and dementia, so that his wife could run errands and enjoy some down time. Unfortunately, Larry suffered from a bout of pnuenmonia and was placed in assisted living. I helped the family by going to the facility and helping Larry with ADLs, as well as providing companion care. When Larry came back home, I stayed overnights and assisted with evening and night care including bathroom assistance and safe transferring from walker and wheelchair to bed.

Because I love to help other people with things that they can't do or want to do but don't have the strength to do it so I feel like why not give back and help others. I'm proud to say that being a caregiver is my calling I love to help people and show them that they can still do anything they put their minds ton

I decided to go into Nursing because of my desire to love and care for people and help them achieve goals and continue their activities of daily living as long as possible. It gives me a feeling of satisfaction to know I've helped or had a hand in someone's comfort. I've worked in Nursing Homes in all different levels of care, The VA, and home health. I've trained in many areas such as Medication Tech, Supervisor In Charge, CPR and First Aid. I've have worked in several homes as a supervisor, with the jobs of: hiring employees, scheduling, Drs. Apps, RX orders and refills, filling daily med packs, ADL's and actual home health care... I've been in home health/nursing for over 30 yrs and it is my passion. I've been married 30yrs, have 3 grown sons, 2 granddaughters , and 2 grandsons. I love people and interacting with them. I like reading, walking, exercising and spending quality time with my family....
