My name is Irina. I am a daughter, mother, gf, I love Jesus.
Since being a young girl I have always wanted to take care of others. To be someone's something when they are in need.
I became a nurse in 1998. I started in nursing facilities. I have worked part time in a family doctors office, ER setting. My most rewarding job is Private care. To be able to provide one on one is so beautiful. To be needed is such a great blessing.
I have experience in most diseases and illnesses. I worked with ALS, Heart Failures, Cancers, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Skin Conditions, Vision Loss.
Wellness is very important to me. So I always try to incorporate healthy eating habits and healthy life style to those I care for. We are surrounded by to much negativity so being a small positive in someone's life is a beautiful gift. I am a great caregiver because I treat my clients male, or female, as if he, or she, are one of my family members. No there's no limits to my care, I will always go above and beyond. I've changed a lot of live, I also have saved lives, with in the past fourteen years I've been in this field. I became a caregiver because of several family members are in the same field, my mom is an registered nurse, going on 35 years, my grandmother was a LPN, and my aunts are CNA. So it deep rooted, so to speak.
I have had the joy and pleasure of caring for the elderly for over 21 years. I have a vast experience in working with all types of challenging diagnosis. I believe that no one, should be defined by diagnosis, age, or challenges that doctors or society has labeled them with! I have extensive experience working with Dementia, Alzheimer's, Stroke, Neurological disorders, Arthritis, COPD, Cardiac, Orthopedics, Amputations,etc

Ie. , Range of motion, exercise,proper transfers, positioning techniques, mobility tasks, strengthening activities,etc. My background as a therapist also enables me to recognize any problem areas and be able to assist the client in these areas.
I love working with someone one on one and to give them the attention and care that deserve.
