Excellent Private Home Health Aide
Avg response < 16 hrs
I have and/or do work in hospital care, facility care, home care, private care and hospice care. My experience, skills and knowledge include: M. S., Alzheimer's, Dementia, diabetic, stroke and heart attack, paralysis, Parkinson's, medication administration, transfers, equipment usage, meals, incontinence, relocation assistance and much more. I have pretty much worked in many areas of health care. I had my CNA but never renewed due to no real change in pay rate, however, I did go to vocational nursing school for a semester which makes me much more advanced than just a CNA. I was just unable to continue for affordability reasons. I also have several excellent references available and a very clean background. After the many ventures I went on, I knew that my heart was in caring for others. My rates are based on home health care averages, EXPERIENCE, REAL KNOWLEDGE, gas, time and travel. My duties also include: appointments, medications, filing of fingernails and toenails, skin care, denture care and regular dental care, transfers, showers, meals, safety measures, assist with physical therapy, assist with wound care, excellent Dementia care, experienced with catheter care and inserting, intramuscular injections, subcutaneous injections, trans dermal injections and very light house cleaning for home health client only. I know what to watch for in stroke, heart attack, and diabetic victims. I know First Aid and CPR. I show up to my work and my references speak for themselves. No matter if the client's condition changes, I continue to charge the same and still show up. Having the same person coming routinely gives everyone involved a feeling of safety and comfort. I am passionate about what I do because I have seen what people can do to others in all situations, the inexperienced, those who don't care and those who do not have a background here. I treat others how I would want to be treated and how I would want my family to be treated, it is extremely important to me. Please only serious clients whom want actual experienced provider with education and training in healthcare. Home care agencies need not respond thank you!
