I used to work as a care giver for VNA (Visiting Nurses Association) as a HHA several years ago. I stopped because I needed full time hours at the time. I have experience working with cognitively delayed, physically challenged and dual diagnosed persons for more than twenty years. I've worked in Group Homes in South Jersey, as well as Ancora Psychiatric Hospital with patients who were deemed not guilty by reason of insanity. Both of these settings, allowed me the opportunity to work with individuals with various physical health illnesses, different personalities, and with severe mental diagnoses. I enjoy working with seniors. It gives me great joy to serve those in need. I'm easy to get along with, easy going, patient, caring, understanding, trust worthy, punctual, and treat others in the way that I want to be treated. I miss being a caregiver, thus is why I have decided to make myself available to serve others. One of my personal achievements is my ability to connect to all classes and races of people. ... more
