I love working with persons who are elderly, persons with disabilities, and pets, providing personal care and emotional support while ensuring a positive environment focusing on client interests. I have experience taking care of persons who are elderly in nursing homes as a nursing assistance and hospitals and Home Health Care as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Some of my patients were young men with quadriplegia and children and young adults with cognitive disabilities. . I worked as a Special Education Teacher in public school for 22 years teaching students k - 12 with severe cognitive disabilities a functional academic curriculum ( academics, communication, activities of daily living, social and behavior skills, domestic skills, leisure and recreation and vocational skills). I also love to garden, bird watch, read, sing and play guitar, walk, bike and swim while appreciating nature and sharing my hobbies with others.
