About Vickie

I am a caregiver because I enjoy caring for the elderly. I became a caregiver because the elderly need someone who will treat them with respect. I provided care for a couple and the wife has Alzheimer's. The husband liked that I was very patient when caring for his wife. The couple's daughter always thanked for being so patient with her mom. I worked in hospitals providing care to patients on the Cardiac Unit, Long-term Unit and Surgery Unit. I provided care to residents that lived in assistance living facility. I provided care to residents requiring hospice and long-term care who lived in nursing homes.
