Since I was a child I always loved helping the elderly. From caring for my grandmother at 15 years of age to working in nursing homes for 13+ years, there has never been a dull moment during my time at work. To be able to take care of our elders with love and compassion is a true gift. The best feeling is knowing that an elder is happy to see me through their various expressions. I have experience working with elderly with dementia, Parkinson's Disease, wheel-chair bound, Arthritis, diabetes, etc. Working in a Assisted Living in White Plains, NY has given me the experience to meet beautiful people of all walks of life. With this, I was also able to learn how to comfort and care for elderly who were seen as troubling. This caught the managements eye and I was blessed with an offer to be a Care Manager who basically manages a floor and assists HHAs with certain elderly people. What I enjoy the most about my career is knowing that I am possibly some else's happiness. I loved every single family that I worked for privately and I know they have the same feeling as well. I stay in close contact with families I have worked for and I would be more than happy to provide any references! :)
