About Harriett

Hello, My Name is Harriett Sharp. I am 56 years old and have been working in the medical field for over 30 years. I've had the pleasure of caring for some very special people. I've enjoyed working and providing comfort, care, compassion and companionship to all of my clients. I've learned to "Listen" instead of hearing what I need in order to give my full attention to what makes them comfortable. I have the training and obtained the knowledge/experience need to provide 110% to my patients. I've learned a lot, but patience and listening are a Must. I've worked 10+ years for an agency and 20+ years in private care. (I prefer private care; this way I can establish a rapport and give the best care that is needed). There my duties varied. I am responsible for the ADL's and their daily lives, grooming (bathing, oral hygiene, dressing), preparing meals, doing errands, accompanying to DR.'s appointments, medication reminders, ROM feeding, as well as cleaning/sterilizing equipment. I have experience in the care of Trach's, and colostomy care, incontinence, wound care, catheters and the use of the Hoyer lift. I have training in care for Dementia and Alzheimer's patients as well. My duties are vast, but I continue to learn. I've enjoyed working in the field; providing respect, care, trust and comfort to all. If interested in communicating further, please feel free to call me at 415-871-1817 Thank You, Harriett E. Sharp
