About Teska

Hello! I am a Certified Nursing Assistant who has several years working with the elderly. I'm a compassionate, hard working individual who has a genuine passion for working with seniors. I love it so much that I couldn't see myself doing anything else. I plan on going to school soon to further my career as a registered nurse. I have experience working with clients with various conditions. I decided to work in the healthcare field after my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Just seeing how hard it was on her physically, and how hard it was on the family emotionally was enough to give me the drive to pursue a career in healthcare. Just to tell you a little about myself, I am a 33 year old mother of three sons. In my spare time, I enjoy family gatherings, going to church, volunteering, sight seeing, traveling, going to the beach, and writing poetry. I love being able to take my clients places that they've never been (If possible), helping them find other hobbies they didn't know they would enjoy, and doing anything I can to put a smile on their faces. When I have clients who are in need of physical therapy, I love being able to assist them with doing their exercises.. We all know that its very hard to be consistent with exercising regularly, so helping them and seeing progress means a lot!
