I originally relocated to Santa Fe with my husband in 2007. It was part pre-retirement and also to move closer to his aging mother. I tried out a career with the TSA, but ultimately found it unrewarding. I changed careers 2 years ago to help an elderly friend. She is on a State Medicaid waiver, and had been unable to find a good fit through an agency. The agency caregivers where not allowed to care for her cat, so I came by to clean the cat box. She has no family, so a group of friends helped her get onto a self-directed waiver. I had found that working with elderly and disabled passengers was the most rewarding part of the job I was working at the airport, and was ready for a change. I am particularly proud of the work I do with this fiercely independent lady. I make all her doctor's appointments and transport her, and make sure all the paperwork for her multiple public assistance programs is filled out correctly and submitted in a timely manner. We enjoy shopping trips and going out for lunch. Since then I have also worked doing respite care and housekeeping/handywoman jobs independently. My first private client was residing at an assisted living home, but was requiring more attention than her family or the staff could provide. She was advancing in her Parkinson's disease, becoming more confused and needing help with toileting and ambulation. I ultimately helped the family find an appropriate memory care home for her. My current Carelinx client lives out in the countryside, so I help with a lot of outdoor tasks like cleaning her horse's corral and gardening. I do a lot of driving, taking her into town for doctor's appointments, Horse Therapy and shopping. I do a lot of appointment setting, help her balance her checking account, order her meds and fill the pill boxes.

When I was 19, my mom encouraged me to take the nursing assistant course. I did, and since then I have had 3 years of experience in caregiving for the elderly, the sick, and the handicapped. I worked in a nursing home for a year caring for those with dementia and Alzheimers, those recovering from surgery, those on hospice care, and those simply in long term care. I also have a year of experience working for a single client with MS in her home. She is completely paralyzed so I worked hard to make her quality of life as high as I possibly could. I made sure she knew she could rely on and trust me, thereby giving her some control back in her life. I've also worked in a long term acute care facility for almost half a year. There I gained experience with patients on ventilators, patients unable to communicate or move, and those with infected wounds, among many other conditions. I am a licensed CNA and have BLS/CPR training (certified). I enjoy the challenge of meeting needs wherever they come up. I believe creativity is a must when giving the best care you can. I enjoy the process of discovering the best ways to respond to needs as they arise. I am proud of the work I do and am very confident that I do it well. It gives me joy to help people in daily tasks and provide emotional support or a listening ear. I am a very empathetic person and so I learn very fast how to predict the needs of individual clients. I also understand well the dynamic between the caregiver and the client and I am capable of maintaining the professional aspect, while still meeting them on a personal level.
