I am a licensed CNA with over 13 year's experience as both an hourly and an in-home 24 hour caregiver. I have many year's experience in other related healthcare fields as well and am also a Licensed Veterinary Technician. I have Nurse Delegation certification, current BLS/HCP CPR and First Aid cards (12/2016), as well as Mental Health certification. The last 2 years I've worked with predominantly one client providing care for all the activities of daily living and companionship as well as acting as a healthcare advocate. I've also spent 4 years with an Alzheimer's client providing in home care including physical therapy assistance and hospice. I have provided care for clients with multiple health concerns including hypertension, heart disease, depression, paralysis, digestive disorders, and cancer. I also worked during my training in a nursing home.
As a side note, I have learned tremendously for 5 years the many aspects of case management acting as a POA and Healthcare Representative/Advocate/Case Manager for a family member and other clients so am able to provide those kind of services as well if needed. I previously worked as a Veterinary Technician for 16 years and in a prior position provided at home medical care for my client's pet as well.
I can also provide Clerical Support as in prior positions I reviewed/maintained medical and other records, facility admission/release forms and contracts, mental health assessments, legal documents, and auto and homeowner's insurance policies. Also handled all phone/mail communications and appointments.
Thank you so much for your time in reviewing my profile and I look forward to seeing how I might help with your caregiving needs. R. Sagner, CNA, LVT
