Senior Companion

I am currently a part-time student at NCSU. I am attending school for my certificate in horticulture science so that I may apply for a graduate program in horticulture therapy next year. I have my bachelors in social work and most recently was employed as a vocational evaluator and occupational training specialist at an employment program for adults with disabilities. I have various experience with senior care. Starting my junior year of high school when I volunteered at one of the local retirement homes. I would visit residents who did not have many visitors or family support. I also received my CNA 1 while in high school and volunteered In the hospital working mostly with aging adults with acute illness, and as well as a skilled facility assisting short term residents In daily routines to get them back to a more independent state. In college I also met with a gentleman in a local assisted living for my diversity class, learning how to work respectfully with people from different generations. At this same assisted living I coordinated a few events with high school and college students to be involved in their community, specifically at this facility. Throughout my most recent job I had clients work and be evaluated at assisted livings and have coached them in working with the elderly. I have enjoyed every experience I have had with this population and hope to continue in bringing value and dignity to those who are aging. I am hoping to supplement some income as I focus on my classes and forthcoming career. If you have any questions, please ask!!
