During my 12 years in the healthcare field I've had the chance to explore many different avenues within. From activity assistant to Activity Director, from senior sitter to Administrator. And there is no position I enjoy more than direct one on one time with my clients. I've worked in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, group homes, and clients homes. I took care of both of my grandmother's in their later years who suffered from Alzheimer's. I have in fact spent most of my career focusing on those with any form of Dementia. I am huge on Quality of life. I spent the last 4yrs with a 94 year young lady twice a week. I have assisted her with walking, reminders for daily hygiene and medication administration. I assisted her with dressing And grooming I combed her hair, painted her nails, read to her, sung with her, we reminisced about joyous moments. I've been her friend her daughter her granddaughter her cook her helper and companion. Whatever she needed.
