I have been working in the health care field for about 20 years. I have worked in the mental health side of it. I have worked in a group home with 10 ladies all at different levels of need. We oversaw their day to day living skills helping them to expand their own skills, also prepared meals, oversaw bathing, dressing, social outing, medication administration. After leaving there I took care of an Autistic young man, then an elderly lady who had several health problems. I took care of her for 10 years, 6 of them in my home. I have worked blind, diabetes and mentally challenged people. Alzheimer's, dementia , mobility, been a companion , I have been certified in HHA & CNA I like knowing and feeling like I have made a difference in a life and maybe made it just a little better. I have always felt a connection with older people. I also help care for my brother-in-law who was a quadriplegic. I am compassionate, caring, trustworthy, loving and will treat your loved one as I would my own .
