About Jessica

I am a very patient person who has done personal care ever since I was in undergraduate school starting with a blind/death teenager and I became very close with his family. I have also worked at a disabled facility for 0-21 years of age and have experience with using a lift as well as experience with G tubes. I have experience with patients who are susceptible to seizures as well. I have also had the pleasure of working one on one with children with behavioral issues as well as have volunteered at senior facilities including assisted living homes. I pride myself on paying attention to the needs of the patient and actually getting to know them and providing the utmost care as if they were my family.

Home Care Assistance
Working overnights to ensure safety of patient while at their home. Patient has dementia and sun Down syndrome so I make sure that when her memory is a little lapsed I help her remember what task she wanted to do such as sit down or go to bed. I assist her with walking to and from restroom as well as five medication reminders and do light housekeeping such as taking out garbage and washing dishes. I assist with changing her briefs and changing clothing when necessary.

My background and how I became who I am today. I was a preschool teacher for 14 years with the same school. St Peters Episcopal Day School. Which I loved doing, In the month of October 2016 my dad who is retired Navy 22 yrs and retired NewportNews shipbuilding 27 yrs was diagnosed with advanced progressed ALS Lou Gherings disease. After being diagnosed he went bed-bound in two months. My mom had to retire also. I quit my job and I took such good care of my dad. I have references of the doctors and nurses that came to our home and asked if I was a nurse. I keped everything organized and neat and clean I educated my self and learned so much. My dad was a complicated patient. As the ALS progressed so fast he required a non invasive ventilator to help him breath, he had a peg tube "G"tube for food and water because he could not swallow safely , a chronic Foley catheter also a nephrostomy tube coming to drain urine from his kidney. I am very proud for the work that I did for caring for my dad. I also have lots of wound care experience. I enjoyed taking care of my dad, that when he did pass away Sept 2 2018 that I got my certification to care for the elderly and critically ill paitents. I flew through school because I had already taken care of the worst for two years. I enjoy caring for him so much that he has enlightened me on a whole new career path. My rate for pay is negotiable.
