My work experience as a caregiver is brief yet rewarding and am very interesting in reentering the field. I worked for Home Instead sitting with a dementia patient whose family eventually moved the patient out of state and a elderly gentleman who I assisted with daily personal hygiene, light housekeeping and cooking. I very much enjoyed reading to the elderly, caring for the elderly and listening to there life stories. I have worked in the customer service industry for 8 years and in social service industry for 18 years. It is my plan to return to school and become a certified nursing assistant.
