Update, I am only looking for a few hours presently. Wage, as well as additional duties (ones I don't have listed), can definitely be negotiated! Presently I am going to school for my CNA, I anticipate being fully licensed by end of May 2021. I am by nature a nurturing individual, my own Grandmother would tell me to stop hovering and go offer help to someone else...she also frequently told me, until the day she passed, "Sarah, you would really be good working with old people". The elderly/frail population is the most I have worked with, but I'm by far not limiting myself to this population only! I have worked with a late stage MS client extensively, another one with a condition highly mirroring Parkinson's disease, but the diagnosis I'm not positive of. I have aided clients with breathing treatments, and made sure oxygen lines were functioning properly. Also, experience caring for a colostomy bag and emptying of urine collection bag (many different set ups) and basic catheter care. Please ask about specific skills you require for proper care of your loved one! I don't have all skills/experiences listed, but I have been in the home care field over three years now and I love it! I have found my career niche in the work world! Thank you for your consideration, four professional references may be supplied upon request. Be happy, smile, and stay safe and healthy! Sarah T.
