About Dawn

I think with a lot of caregivers, it starts at home, or at least for me it did. I took care of my cancer stricken mother for 6 months before she passed and I never considered it a burden. I got my first official caregiver position April 2015 (from a friend who does it for a living), I had experience with medication, breathing treatments, diabetic injections, and being able to move an non-mobile person without injuring yourself, so I had no doubt I could do the job, but I wasn't sure if I could put the same passion into caring for someone who wasn't related to me. The patient was a 93 year old woman who just had surgery and needed round the clock care in her home. It took me a month to gain her trust and several months to warm up to me, but she did. She recently passed and I now find an empty spot and the desire to care for someone else who's in need.

    Caregiver

    Apr 2015 - Nov 2015
    Allgood Home Health Care
    Monitored patient during the night, managed medication, initially clean and changed bedridden patient, then assisted with mobility in using the bathroom, housekeeping, and any reasonable patient requests. I did care for my mother, where I completely cared for her around the clock, administered medication, gave insulin shots, administered antibiotics through IV, complete changing and grooming. I've only listed this 1 position as my other work experience isn't related.
