Available Personal Companion Aide, Nurse Assistant

I start caring for seniors 1997 due to my Culinary Arts credentials in that department with the grand opening of a care giving facility. I owe them my several trainings & credentials as my Certified Food Management. I worked as a cook there for two years hand in hand with a nutritionist for 50 recipients for the company. I stop for a while since I manage my own home child care for the county due for my own growing children as I extended it for my livelihood for 6 years registered by the state. I ended that place since my 3 kids had grown up. Returning to my career, I took classes for my certification as personal companion aide in continuing education at geriatric classes of VA Commonwealth University 2009 for the state's requirement of 45 hours hands on experience. For 2 years, I was hired within for 8 recipients with different cases like Parkinson, Dementia, mute, blind, cardiac arrest elders in golden years independent assisted living as a companion assistant nurse aide. I was trained to assist clients who are unable to care for themselves without assistance in Activities of Daily Living (ADL'S), such as light housekeeping, shopping, meal preparation and other homemaker services personal care, home management household maintenance, child rearing, nutrition education and supervision of medical compliance to maintain individuals independence to prevent institutionalization. Trained to take vital signs, supervise Range of Motion (ROM) exercise as instructed by physical therapist and family. I manage well helping multi-tasking the management due to my excellent experienced working with seniors in the past with the care giving facility that enhanced & modified my field with seniors outside privately. My most current job started late 2010 was with a dementia 92-year-old senior who I was her private companion care that lasted 4 years; she rests in peace now. I have several part time back up care companion aide at an assisted living facility with colleagues who need back up help as needed only. I am looking for a regular job for my own employer full time or part time, night shift or weekends too. My passion became stronger for spiritual empowerment doing good favor for the elders like my true real parents, I had no chance to take care of my own I missed them so dearly since they all rest in peace. A kind deed is like water for a flower: It makes the heart bloom. I thank God for planting a garden in my heart.
