Senior Care Provider With 12 Years Of Hospice Experience.

I started working with Life Path Hospice about 12 years ago and continue to volunteer with them. I have experience with assisted living, nursing homes, hospitals and working in the Melech House. I have also trained new volunteers who have joined Hospice over the years. I have been a spokesperson for Hospice and am very passionate about what I do. At this point, I have well over 1500 hours of volunteer time with patient/family care. I have helped with spiritual, vigil and respite care. I have been blessed to be a calming influence and care taker for the patients and families as a whole. My personal experience in caring for my Mother who had Dementia, also gave me first hand knowledge of the difficulties it can bring to a family. We all want our loved ones to be treated with respect and be safe and cared for by anyone who is going to be providing help. My heart has always led me in caring for others, both human and animal, so this is a great fit to continue to do what I love.

Jodi is an amazing, caring, and dependable care giver. She made my mother feel special. She is smart, level headed, client oriented. She never missed a day! She brought comfort, stability, and compassion to our family. Our first priority for my mom was quality of life, and Jodi definitely brought that. Mom passed away last month, and we have the comfort of knowing that her life was better for knowing Jodi.

RN Patient Advocate And Caregiver

I am an RN specializing in Oncology for 35 years. I am an experienced patient advocate. I will: 1) help you to know where to begin in understanding your disease and its treatment and how to handle it! (a lot for #1) 2) help to know what questions to ask? 3) manage and control adverse side-effects 4)disseminate information to your family and friends in plain English (understandable language) 5)help you to attain your goals. I have been honored in many ways over the years with awards and honorariums. I was on a Presidents panel re: oncology in Washington DC, where I spoke with Senators and Congressional leaders re: oncology patients and what their needs are during and after treatment (also to explain why these patients must have RNs for their treatment). I was voted "outstanding Oncology Nurse in the Nation" out of 10, 000 nurses and 5 finalists. 2002-2003. I have worked in research for 9 yrs finding patients for trials and finding trials for patients. I have also managed clinical research trials everything from the budget to actually administering the treatments. While working full time, I also cared for foster children for 5 1/2 years. I had 4 boys between the ages of 5-17 who lived with me full time. I also welcomed boys into my home on week-ends for temporary care. When all of my boys were either reunited with their families or off to college. I began mentoring a little 5-year-old girl. We had a lot of fun doing girl things, after only being with boys, sewing for a little girl was great fun. I worked with her family as well regarding nutrition, cooking and baking fresh foods, As a mentor I also encouraged her with her schoolwork, with an emphasis in reading, In the summer we had great fun swimming. I taught both she and her 8-year-old brother how to swim! For the past 3 yrs I have been caring for my aunt and uncle both in their 80's with dementia and Parkinson's disease. As a nurse I am comfortable with total care of a patient, meaning, assisting with ADL's, feeding, transferring, bathing, dressing, medication administration and management. I enjoy working as a team member for the patients benefit. Over the years, the most wonderful honor I have received has been the thanks from my patients and their loved ones.
