      Experience & Education


      Jun 2011 - Nov 2017
      CNA Home Health Care
      I took care of Mrs. Kent. She was paralyzed from a stroke. So, I had to change her diaper consistently. Usually every three hours. Unless she was sick. I also changed her sheets every other day. Sometimes, I would do it daily depending on how they looked. I also put four cans of food in her feeding tube every four to six hours. I also put a little bit of water in her feeding tube line to keep it from getting caked up on the line. When she was bathed two or three of is would do it. Being that she was paralyzed. All of us care takers filled out a daily journal on how she was feeling and what we dod for the time we we're there. We also made sure we noted we gave her, her medication. And, when her medication was low we would let the family no. I'm no longer working for the family being that Mrs. Kent passed away sadly in November.
