About Tara

I really enjoy helping the patient comfortable in their own space. My grandfather and the way he was treated in a nursing home. He just wanted to be at his home. Helping my patient feel comfortable and relaxed. Letting him or her tell stories about the past,love,kids, what it was like in the old days. Being there for them when they need me most. Making them feel useful and they do matter

Took care of Bob, Shaun's father. He was blind. I would run errands for him, take him to the Dr. Take him grocery shopping with me. He loved the Starbucks coffee. I would do all the ADL. I would get his meds prepared morning, noon and night. Clean and do laundry. Read his mail to him, but sperate the bills for his son. Check his vitals. Check his blood sugar. Give him a shot of one insulin if needed, if it was low I would make him orange juice. Kept everything I done documented. One for me and one for Shawn. If I was working nights I would get him ready for bed and put him in bed. Documenting any sores, scratches , ect.
