About Jacqueline

What began me in this field was my first patient, my Dad. My desire to help the elderly and to bring joy, conversation, laughter and most of all, bring excellent care, comfort and companionship. I know I have a soft spot for the elderly. I enjoy getting to know each person and sometimes get attached to them.

Experience & Education

Home Health Care Aid

Aug 2019 - Sep 2019
Private Care
I was privately hired to care for a sweet woman who was a cancer patient. She had a tumor on her spine that shattered her vertebrae and breast cancer. I cooked, cleaned, did laundry for her. Utilized a walker chair to transport her to the restroom and lifted her to the toilet; she was tiny, 90 lbs. - many trips to the bathroom as she aways had the sensation. Whatever she needed. Sadly, she ended up at Calvary Hospice.

Home Health Care Aid

Jan 2017 - Jul 2019
Private Care
I cared for a sweet older gentleman who suffered from a stroke. I again prepared meals, tested glucose levels, massaged legs with ointment, assisted with transporting to restroom. In addition, aided with cleaning, organizing and replenishing stock of supplies and food. After time, he became very weak and was bed ridden, I helped his wife in changing sheets, diapers, hoyer lift to living room. My top priority was to ensure he was safe and comfortable, as well as that his wife had lunch and hot tea. My poor dear friend then passed away.

Caregiver

Jan 2015 - Nov 2016
Private Care
I had spent many years in the corporate world until my Dad became sick. My Dad moved into my home and was wheelchair bound. I prepared meals, handled medication, doctor visits, transported to and from. As well as scheduled all PT, OT, and nurse visits. I assisted in his showering and due to his diabetes he had a wound on his heel which required daily bandage dressing. He was provided companionship along with the best care and diet.

Hello My is Nancy, I enjoy working one on one with people, and I especially love to make them smile by doing little things to brighten their day. I'm a registered CNA and HHA. I have taken care of several family members and friends of family and I've worked as a home health aid. Every person is special and everyday can present a new challenge and I am constantly learning from my clients. One woman in particular that I cared for was 65 yrs old. She was deaf & mute and taught me ASL sign language. So taking care of an individual is part of the job, but 'Caring For Them' is a large part of My heart.

I did take care my grandfather, he was a nice and sweet man. He teach me how difficult is for the elders be alone so I enjoyed to share my days with him and help him with the house, doctors appointment , go to the park or just be in the sofa watching TV programs. My vision about the elders change my life, making more compassion and care for them.
