I've been an LPN for 18 years, I'm 46 years old and I love working with geriatric patients. I'm patient, kind and dependable. I can provide assistance for all activities of daily living with a professional nurse's ability to monitor vital signs, assess and maintain skin integrity (avoid bedsores), recognize signs and symptoms of acute illness, have a knowledge of medications and more while your loved one remains safe and comfortable in their own home.
I am a twenty year-old college student living and studying in Southern Illinois. I am very active in my church, and enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking or kayaking. Originally from Alabama, I spent my early childhood observing and helping my mother and grandmother care of my great-grandmother, who spent 40 years in a wheel chair due to a stroke. I consider myself fortunate for this personal experience with my great-grandmother, Ruth, because I witnessed firsthand how important it is to handle disability with dignity, respect, humor, and practicality. As my great-grandmothers abilities and needs changed, I watched her caregivers work to help find a "new normal," not only for my grandma, but for our entire family. As a caregiver, my personal objective is to not only ensure my patient's health needs are met, but also assist my patient in finding enjoyment or interest in each day.
Started volunteering for Hospice when my mom was working for them when i was about 12 yrs old. Became very close with one woman that was on and off of Hospice for years, when she was coming to the end i went and moved in with her and her daughter to help with her care. After she passed away I went to CNA classes and was determined to give everyone the same type of love and care that i gave that woman and the peace of mind i gave her daughter.

I am very compassionate and attentive to the needs of the elderly. I am extremely dependable and highly motivated in providing patient care. I am very loving and love to listen when they are talking to me. I have been in the medical field most of my working career, however I worked in Pathology and not as a caregiving. I am very knowledgeable about what happens when we age which I believe helps me understand what a person experience during the aging process. Listening to people tell you about who they are and what they have done over their life time. I had the opportunity to take care of an elderly gentleman during his last days and making his last days as enjoyable and pleasant and possible. I think of him and miss him everyday. He died two months before his 100th birthday. He was an amazing man. I believe that I not only comforted and touched his life but he touched mine. May he rest in peace.

I am a naturally caring person that loves history and personal stories.
