Responsible Pennsylvania-licensed LPN and compassionate caregiver with excellent communication skills demonstrated by time spent as a personal caregiver for 2 years for an elderly woman who had suffered from a stroke and 1 years' hospital experience in an acute care rehabilitation unit. I enjoy spending time with my patients, listening to their stories and assisting them with their activities of daily living. I am pleasant and hardworking and love the opportunities that arise when working in the medical field.
