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
