For the past 50 years I've volunteered at Nursing homes and assisted living facilities. I've worked as a nurse for 35 years; my last job was an RN in ER. In my years of nursing and volunteering, I've administered medications, served meals, educated clients, gave baths, took vital signs, monitored cardiac rhythms, changed dressings, assisted doctors with various procedures, ordered lab work, xrays, MRI's, CT scans, etc. I've always been passionate about caring for the elderly. I think it's because I lived with my great grandmother a lot as I was growing up and I developed a strong bond with her. After I married and had children they too soon became regular visitors with me to the local nursing home. It was so gratifying to see the residence enjoy the children as they performed for them. After I retired, I visited an assisted living on Wednesdays and spent the afternoon on Fridays polishing the residences' finger nails. My goal is to make a difference in a senior's life; however small.
