I am a compassionate, outgoing and caring person that loves to serve the needs of others, especially the elderly. I am a believer, and have a servants heart. There is so much about care giving that I love. Shining light in an otherwise dark environment ,Listening to their stories of the good old days, Reading to people that no longer can focus well. Playing music from their generation, I love sharing my personal adventures, about my days off with them. Show pictures of hikes I've taking with my husband, or things that I have baked. Oh yes, Love to cook. Healthy meals. I will always keep my clients personal hygiene at its best. Assist them with oral care, hair care, shaving etc. I always promote independence and dignity and respect. I will treat your loved one the way I would want mine to be treated. with 100% devotion to their every need. What attracted me to being a care giver is the enormous need in our country today, I cared for my own grandmother in her 90's, and realized there is just not enough of us out there. I love bringing people Joy as well is receiving joy from them. I am punctual and reliable, you can count on me to be on time. I am proactive and conscientious, if I see something needs attention, I won't wait. I have a positive attitude and I bring encouragement and understanding. I am neat and clean, I don't leave a mess and can help with house work. I care for my patients and I care for their pets too!!! I am a retired RN and young at heart. My approach is holistic meaning mind, body and soul. I am gentle and will not rush my patient. I can sit with my patients and just reminisce about the good ole days or build some blocks. I enjoy a good walk with them in their wheelchair/strollers/other. I also drive for errands/doctors/school. I always wanted to be a nurse since I was a child. When I was a young teenager I volunteered at a local nursing home brushing hair and polishing nails until I was able to get my RN license. I like to invite my patients into activities which they can participate. I love to read or play cards with people or just listen to them tell me all about everything. I am so proud that I finished Nursing School which was and still is my first Love and favorite thing to do! I am IV certified and experienced in medication administration, monitoring ventilators, changing catheters, hook up/take down oxygen tanks, Gtubes, and IV maintenance. and.......................... lots of love, talking and listening.
