I am employed by an agency but would like to work on weekends. Should you have an emergency please contact me. Thank you.
In 2009, I successfully took a 45-hour home care training course, conducted by the Alzheimer's Association, to care for people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
Since then, I have been working on short-term and long-term assignments, on a live-in and live-out basis.
In 2014, I took a Home Health Aide program (84 hours) from Igbans Institute of Vocational Training including CPR before joining an agency in order to continue working for my patient who joined the Medicaid program.
Over the years, I have worked with early stage, middle and late stage adults in their homes.
My duties as an HHA and companion covers assisting with hygiene activities, doctor appointments, running errands, light meal preparation, light housekeeping, ensuring their safety and reassuring my patients they are safe.
