Hello, my name is Yarlene and I dedicate a lot of my time to helping others. I first started with a Patient who was on a vent and had a traumatic brain injury. He was responsive only with his eyes but smiled if you told him a really good joke. He recently passed away but lived that way for 25 years. With the 5 years of taking care of him he never got a bed sore I believe he was happy as he could be. I gave him my all and I'm hoping he's up in heaven dancing his life away as he should be. I enjoy making people smile and keeping them occupied. I had a patient who lived until 99 and she was amazing. We did so many activities from baking to doing a word search or taking a stroll around the block. Being a caregiver isn't only about caring for there needs, its about giving them there lives back and making them feel great. I became a home health aid because i love helping others, i love making them smile and making them feel that there still capable of doing anything there heart desires. I go to school at Nassau community college now and will be transferring to Farmingdale State college to get my nursing degree. I also work at NYU Winthrop hospital as a nurse assistant. I promise you your family members will be in great hands. ... more

I've been a home health aid for the past 5 years. within those 5 years, I had a patient who recently just passed away who had a traumatic brain injury and could not help himself. I was responsible to suction him, clean him up, take his vital signs and of course accompany him and make him laugh.
