HELLO! My career as a caregiver started with a chronically ill father. Throughout my childhood and in my early teens my dad was very ill with diabetes Type 1. When I was 5 years old my dad lost his eyesight. As a preteen I participated in his care helping with blood sugar readings and Insulin injections. When I was able to drive I help out by taking him to doctor's appointments. I went away to college and lived in Florida for a few years and as my dad became progressively worse I moved home. I became increasingly involved in his care as my mother was worn out and had a very full-time job. At that point I decided to change career paths and go to nursing school. My love of taking care of people is a direct result of the experience I had administering Loving Care to my father . I considered to be a dedicated and resourceful Private Duty Nurse. With an exceptional record of in-home health care provision I am able to function well independently in home medical emergency situations and to coordinate regular care regimens with physicians and other hospital staff. Superb communicator with a variety of patient types and skilled in providing a pleasant and sympathetic home health care experience. Core Qualifications Wide experience in private residential nursing. Excellent grasp of home care clinical practices. Superior skills in safe and comfortable patient transfer and positioning. Outstanding ability to handle traumatic situations effectively. Strong oral and written communication skills. High empathy and listening skills

Skills & Certifications: Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

I have been in health-care for many years, and have cared for many elderly and younger adults over the age of 40. I have worked in adult-homes, assisted living facilities, home-health care agencies, and have worked privately on many cases caring for clients in their homes as well. For as long as I can remember, I have always Loved and enjoyed helping people, and it always seemed natural for me to concern myself with someone else's well being above my own. I like interacting with other's and giving someone the opportunity to feel important, safe, secure, and most of all loved. I have had other jobs over the years, doing different kind of work, but for some reason, always ended up doing this kind of work. I liked working the other jobs, but I always lacked the passion that I had with caring for and helping others. I have always put the needs of other's above my own, despite the circumstances, and that I am proud of. I have a great deal of experience in personal care, which includes assistance with showering, bathing, dressing, assistance with any meds to be given, toileting, bed changes, laundry housekeeping, cooking, running errands, and companionship. The one duty I cannot perform is any lifting, or transferring at all. I would need a client who is mobile, or at least can get in and out of a wheelchair with very little assistance. I am also comfortable with pets, and have them of my own. I am very flexible with my availability. I would love to continue caring for others.
