Accomplished Social Worker with 13+ years experience working with seniors. 10 of those years spent managing the day-to-day operations and supervising 24 hour a day staff of a licensed home for adults. In addition to administrative duties, I also covered shifts when Aides were unable to work. Each shift consisted of personal care, meal preparation, medication administration, activities, cleaning and laundry for 10 elderly residents with chronic mental illness, dementia and physical disabilities. I was certified in CPR, Health Department Sanitation, State Medication Management and Homes for Adult License for Administrator. Even though the certifications have lapsed, the knowledge still remains!
Despite being out of my career for a number of years raising two children, I am eager to return to the community to support seniors and their families, help reduce worry and stress and allow seniors to "age in place"in a familiar place and comfort of their own home.
