I have over thirty years experience from hospitals to convalescent homes to private care. I worked through Jewish family services in the past as well. One of my past patients was the father to two Ivy league doctors sons that I cared for for over five years. My last patient passed away that I cared for for over nine years. I have medical experience with every type of patient. I am familiar with medical terminology and have a higher college degree. Every patient I worked for was pleased with the care I had given them. I am very reliable. I have a compassionate personality and feel for my patients dilemmas.

I enjoy working and helping people. I am a very patient, kind and caring person. To be a CNA is a very rewarding job. To know that you can make a difference in someone's life, by taking care of them, when they can not do so for themselves any longer. Sometimes just to talk and listen is what's most needed when relatives can not be near. I treat my residents with the care and respect I would like to be treated. I have many years experience in this field and am very confident with my CNA skills.

I am an experienced occupational therapist with a background in caregiving. While returning to school as a career changer in my 30s , I worked as a caregiver for a client with severe rheumatoid arthritis, and another with dementia and Parkinson's Disease. I especially enjoyed finding creative ways to redirect my patient with dementia while supporting optimal physical exercise, hydration and PO intake. The family of my patient said she was most hydrated and exercised during my care, and they used me as the standard for the other caregivers. I provided such great care for my client that the family retained my services even after I graduated with my masters degree in occupational therapy! They increased my pay which was nice, but the trust they had in me was such an inspiration. The family would travel out of state and leave their mom in my care. I took care of that client until she passed away years later. Being a practicing occupational therapist will be a great benefit for the clients I get to work with, because I will certainly bring more than the basic caregiving skills to the job. As an OT, I currently conduct CNA competency training at my facility. I look forward to providing my expertise to family members and other relevant persons in order enhance the care of my patients.

I am a great listener and to be able to read my clients is very important in giving great care. I enjoy helping others. Getting to know the clients I'm helping and being able to help them with their tasks at hand. Being able to say that I have helped so many people in the last 33 yrs. and to receive a smile and a Thank You is its own reward.
