Compassionate Senior Care Provider Looking to Make a Difference
I am a CNA and former EMT. I am certified in CPR/First Aide, and have emergency training.
My experience comes mostly from my work as certified nursing assistant (pediatric and adult home care for 8 years, and 3 year at a medical center), assisting my grandmother bathe and keep house while my grandfather was in the hospital, and helping take care of my mentally disabled ex-sister-in-law for 15 years.
My specialty as far as elder care is working with dementia/Alzheimer's, and persons with blindness & other visual disorders. I have also worked with children and adults post stroke, Cerebral Palsy, and Multiple Sclerosis, quad and paraplegic, and am willing to learn any and all other disabilities, as well as assist those not disabled in all aspects of personal care.
I have experience working with medical equipment such as hoyer lifts, assistive devices, oxygen equipment & nebulizers, TPN, colostomy & ileostomy bags, trach care, hospital beds, etc.
