I have been caring for seniors for over 10 years now. I received both my Home Health Aide (HHA) and Certified Nurse's Aide (CNA) certificates in New York and Connecticut respectively. I have worked throughout Connecticut in seniors homes as well as live-in facilities and I am experienced in both settings. I have assisted seniors' with Parkinson's disease, dementia, stroke, arthritis etc. I am also experienced in assisting with ADL's such as baths, cooking, transfers from bed to wheelchair and vice versa, toileting, diaper change, skin and hair care, nail care, etc. Furthermore, I prepare food for clients, offer medication reminders, perform bathroom and bedroom cleaning, laundering, vacuuming/floor mopping, linen change etc. I am a well-rounded caregiver who provides as many services as required by my clients, and my years of experience speak for itself. I am passionate about what I do because I realize I have a special place in my heart for the elderly. I cared for my mother who experienced stroke for the last 10 years of her life and since then I realized I had found a new calling in life. I noticed how carefully I cared for her and feel all seniors require the same care as well.
