I took Nursing Assistant classes during the summer before my senior year in high school. I have worked in a hospital setting and home health care for over 14 years. I was grateful for the experience I have gained in the medical profession as it was helpful when my son was diagnosed with cancer. Overwhelming as that was I was prepared for the treatment program he was randomly selected to begin. Thankfully that is behind us now. My greatest achievement was raising my four children, three who are college graduates, into responsible adults who continually make their mother proud. Most recently I have had ex perience in the home setting with geriatric patients dealing with dementia, Alzheimer's, stroke victim and also orthopedic problems. I enjoy being able to bring a smile, a helping hand and a comforting manner to whomever I am taking care of presently. I'm in my fifties but am young at heart, enjoy reading, card games, puzzles, crafts, cooking and many diverse subjects. Am currently certified in Basic Life Support and First Aid. ... more
