Hi, my name is Deb, I am a trustworthy 47 yr old mom. I am married to my best friend, our children are grown, out of the house and I am excited to care for others again. I have a background as a RN, CMA, CMT and have knowledge of CPR, BLS and PALS. I have also worked at assisted living homes providing care, med administration, playing games, providing comfort and / or just being there to listen to them. Possessing a positive attitude and common sense are a few of my traits. If you are looking for a great caregiver for your loved one I am it.
Skills & Certifications: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
I originally took the CNA course just to satisfy a RN school prerequisite. As it turns out, I got my permit and began working the summer before I was supposed to start nursing school. Never managed to pass nursing school but after some time that fact didn't really matter; I realized I was having a blast at being an aide. I get to have full patient contact, get to know everyone. I realized just how important being an advocate for patients I am responsible for caring for is. I do a job not many people can do. I have had supervisors, family members et al admit that fact. It is nice to be needed, wanted but most of all, trusted. I tend to build a repo ire with patients and their family members and address their concerns within my scope or relay those concerns to appropriate professionals.
I do have a CNA license. However I don't feel comfortable releasing the number online. I like being a caregiver mainly because I believe empathy is key to enjoying life. I have seen so much in the years I have been at the nursing home, everyone needs empathy and I hope with every encounter I have- even outside of work that I show that.
