About Bernadene

Hello and Welcome to my CareLinx profile. My name is Bernadene, but I prefer to be called Bernie. After spending 38years as a certified Rad Tech and 1 year as a CCMA (Certified Clinical Medical Assistant), I decided to leave corporate America and branch out on my own. My first part time client was a lovely, elderly lady who had suffered 2 bouts of oral cancer. She had a feeding tube and a tracheostomy. While she could not speak, we communicated via written word and hand signals. We took walks and played cards. She was a great 500 Rummy player! She passed away 4 months later. I knew then that I wanted to be a caregiver on a full time basis. I loved spending time with her and being instrumental in her care and well being. The personality traits which help me to be a great caregiver are: compassion, patience, kindness and a great love and respect for the elderly. I truly enjoy what I do on a daily basis. I love being my own boss and working a schedule that befits me. I'm a firm believer in Jesus Christ and have a great love for the Holy Word.
