I am a Registered Nurse of 38 plus years who retired two years ago. I have worked on medical, surgical ( with pediatric) units as well as labor & delivery, nursery & care of mom's recovering from deliveries. I have personal experience caring for immediate family members as well as patients with mental illnesses, diabetes, stroke, heart attack, kidney failure , dialysis & dementia. I worked at a local hospital for 18 years, then at a physician's office doing phone triage. I then became a school nurse for 11 years caring for grades 3, 4 & 5.
I knew I wanted to be a nurse since I was 3 years old & never wavered. I began working at 16 years old as a nurses aid. I am a compassionate caregiver who gives her heart & soul to whom ever I am caring for. My job performances have always been average to above average. My job as an RN did not stop when I got home. I cared for my brother for 35 years till he passed from a multitude of illnesses, many of which are mentioned above. I cared for my Mom when she became ill with dementia. I want very much to continue helping & caring for others but in a different capacity as a companion. Less paperwork & more time with your loved one no matter their age. My focus is always on the individual I am with & my care is individualized according to whom I am caring for. I have never had any compliments during my tenure. I treat my patients the same way I would hope my parents, children and siblings would be.
I have passed my criminal record check. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for considering me as a candidate to care for your loved one.
