I am a Loving, Compassionate, Dependable, and Respectable Person. I have been caregiving over 20 years. I have patience and understanding and a great since of respect for the elderly and for those that are unable now to care for themselves. I have worked closely with nursing staff as well and doctors in treating clients. I come from a large family locally here in Kern County and this is my calling in life to care for others. To love and respect them as if their your own family. In my last position I was taking care of a elderly man that had to use a walker due to a stroke he had had, he didn't like to use it so he and I sat down and made a personal goal for him to walk again without assistance and he did just that. Our schedule consisted of a lot of pool therapy in the senior complex he lived in, we used swimming aides such as floaties and such to help him build his muscles back up, we made several trip's to the mall for our mall walks to build muscle and balance and his reward for the month was either a Bakersfield Blaze baseball game or going fishing which we did a lot of and it was great. I am Currently working full time as the Actvities Director & Resident Care Coordinator at a 46 bed Memory Care Community, I manage 14 employees as well as the service plan for all residents and plan and implement the hourly activities. I love what I do.
