About Sarah

* What are your personality traits or expertise that help you be a great caregiver? * Patients have told me I am a very patient individual and they enjoy my presence. I enjoy one-on-one time to listen to their concerns, stories, and general conversation. * What attracted you to being a caregiver? * Growing up my mother was an LPN and my sister went on to become an LPN as well. After caring for my disabled Veteran husband from Aug. 2015 until Nov. 2017 I decided to take a Nurse Aide certification course to begin my journey in Healthcare. * What do you enjoy most about being a caregiver? * I enjoy brightening my patient's day, even if only a little. I enjoy watching my patient's heal and celebrating their accomplishments with them. One that sticks out is a patient that we were told would never walk or speak again. They would be completely bedridden and dependent on other people for the rest of their life. After weeks of care with my team the patient was walking with assistance, completing crossword puzzles, bathing themself, and talking our ears off. * What is a personal achievement you are proud of? * Though I was only employed by Riverside Hospital for 6 months (I had to leave due to family commitments), I received multiple Champion of Caring Nominations and my team won the Daisy Award.

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.
