I begin to care for seniors in 2009. My great grand father Alex was placed in a nursing home because at the time no one was available in my family to take care of him.

I begin to care for seniors in 2009. My great grand father Alex was placed in a nursing home because at the time no one was available in my family to take care of him. As a family we had agreed that a nursing home would best supply his needs and demands at that time. My great grand father Alex was paralyzed on the right side of his body due to a stroke and he had memory problems. He needed to be turned every 2 hours, repositioned, and assisted to the bathroom and or urinal assistance. This nursing home did not provide the level of care as my family expected. Due to the lack of care my great grand father had bed ulcers so bad that it went deep into the bone. He received an infection from his urine and feces. He was not taking to the bathroom as needed, positioned every 2 hours, or turned every 2 hours. After this awful experience my family was devastated. We chose to place him else where but 3 days later he passed away from a bacterial infection at the new nursing home. This experience personally touched me. I stopped working at taco bell to help take care of seniors. I even decided to work with seniors with memory care because my great grandfather also had memory care problems. I am passionate about what I do because I am a person of integrity. Even when no one is watching I am trusted to always do the right things. I cannot bring my great grand father back but I can help save others by doing what needed and expected to the best of my ability, helping with daily living activities, and giving them care of enrichment for their lives. I believe that helping seniors is a god giving talent with patience and from my employment history I am over qualified.
