About Beverly

I have been a patient care assistant/ Direct careworker for over 15 years and I love what I do. I enjoy being able to help people in need. I have worked with many clients that are recovering from strokes. I have also worked with many clients that are suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer's disease. I have worked with many clients that just need companionship also. I have also helped clients that are terminal to help make their transition peaceful and comfortable also helping to comfort the family. I am a very patient and understanding person which I feel is important, I also have a great calming effect if I am ever faced with any stressful situations which helps me to be more affective in my job. I am very trustworthy and honest. I have done errands on my clients behalf in a timely and accurate way. I will accompany the client to and from Dr. Appointment as well as doing errands and other outings. I am very dependable and prompt. I believe that You have to love what you do in order to be more effective with different clients because no two clients are the same and each one will get my undivided attention for as long as I am taking care of your loved one. I don't spend time on my cell phone, my attention goes to the client at all times, which is important. I also use universal safety precautions at all times. I am always reading and learning about better ways I can be more effective with my clients. I am a caregiver/ personal care assistant because I love helping people and I love making a difference in people's lives. I am also a licensed Adult care worker who specializes in working with adults.

Being a CNA I have found that I enjoy being able to take care of others. And have learned much from my clients during my 28+ years. I have been lucky enough to have worked with supervisors and nursing staff that have enabled me to continue my education in many areas of medical and mental disabilities and new medications. I have taken care of age groups from NB to 104 yr. I've worked in the ER, Vent Units, Nursing and Assistant living facilities, Home Health, Hospice Care and Private Duty. I also have experience in working with young adults with Special Needs. And in each new environment I have greatly enjoyed and learned more than I would have ever thought possible. I also have all Clearances (updated as 11/2017), Physicals and Medical requirements, references and documentation needed to work in the state of PA. I am the mother of 3 grown sons. Love to read and listen to music. Mostly oldies dance music (50's / 60's) and country. Love Philadelphia sports teams. Especially the Phillies and Eagles. I received my nursing certifications in North Carolina, where my family lived for 12 years. I hope this small bio helps you in your search for caregiver. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
