Hello! My name is Emilia and I am a geriatric assistant in Spain, currently residing in Gaithersburg. In Spain I was working in several geriatric centers for 6 years, serving older people with some dementia such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, schizophrenia, also with depressive disorders or people who have recovered after surgery or because their relatives want to take a rest for a while. The attention, care and feeding towards them, has always focused on their suffering pathology or condition; Always respecting the rhythm of each person, as well as motivating them to do things that even they can do and that do not lose their autonomy. I have put insulin, I have performed glycemic control, I have put heparin, taking blood pressure, body temperature, oximetry control, bandage placement, feeding control or nasogastric tube, nasojejunal or gastric tube feeding. I love working with older people to motivate them, I have empathy and patience with them. I understand English and I speak little.
