When caring for another human being you have to remember that they want to be respected, be loved, listen to, and to just enjoy life. You need to be responsible ,compassionate , flexible, have positive energy, be able to communicate with the patient and family members, knowledgeable, punctual and most importantly love what you do. This is me! I bring reassurance to my patients and families that I'm actually here for them, that I do deeply and truly care about providing the best care for them and with my experience in hospitals, homes, public health, assisted living and nursing homes I have the knowledge and skills needed for the job. When I go home from work I feel good in my heart knowing that I've helped someone in some way big or small. :)

I had to take care of my own parents when they both required extensive home care due to Alzheimers and learned then how vital it is to fully understand these afflications and how to deal with them for the best quality of life and dignity and comfort of those elderly. I enjoy interacting with those that have lived long and interesting lives and I recognize the need to return the help and care to them after they have spent a lifetime helping others. I especially enjoy interacting with the family of those elders that I care for and providing appropriate assistance to them also in regards dealing with their elderly relatives and the end of life situations that occur. I have personally dealt with over 15 hospice situations and made the end of life transition smooth and dignified and compassionate for all involved. I have found that through improving the quality and enjoyment of daily life for elderly that they simply do better and enjoy living. No matter what the circumstances, and no matter how far gone they are, they still respond to care and love and appropriate attention and return such in whatever way they are still able to. I spent most of my life working in construction in all trades and all levels up to Management and Supervision. I retired from that sort of physical activity due to some aggravated injuries and found that there is a vast need for compassionate and understanding care and assistance needed for elderly. Since I am not so far removed from the elderl
