About Jamaica

I am a responsible, sweet, polite and caring professional with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree and a New York State Registered Nurse license. I have first aid and CPR certification for health care providers. I have been employed as an aide at a physical therapy and rehabilitation clinic for two years and am also a Red Cross volunteer nurse. I am looking to provide temporary part-time senior care and companionship. My recent work experience was with an in-home care agency. I have catered to different client needs and conditions--physical limitations, dementia, renal failure, diabetes with glucose monitoring and insulin injections, stroke, heart diseases, post-operative care needs, wound care, colostomy, tube feedings, terminal illness and other special needs. I have established great working relationships with their families as well. The most rewarding part of working in long-term care is being able to see the progress my clients make. I firmly believe in providing adequate quality care and companionship without compromising independence and dignity. I love taking walks with my clients, as well as listening to their stories and experiences. I also perform medication administration, light housekeeping, hygiene assistance, laundry and meal preparation. I do not smoke and am comfortable around pets.
