I started as a companion / direct care care giver while still in high school in 1978. I became a CNA in1980 and an LVN in 1998. I was unable to renew in 2008 due to family and financial complications. I have worked in various hospitals, physical rehab facilities, convalescents; personal home care; Agencies; Hospice care. I'm able to provide more information of past and recent history and references upon request.
I am currently over 40 years old, having worked since I was age 14, from baby-sitting and watching every other relative's child. I then graduated to the medical field, and here, I worked most of my life, from being a companion, to certified nurse aide, to licensed vocational nurse. I've worked in a very large variety medically oriented, children and babies, but I have also worked with children who did not have special needs, but like all children, they are developing their own special personalities. Also, I worked in "Mother-Baby" floors in the hospital. I have an old fashioned personality, which needs the custodial parents discriminative choice of how or what is appropriate during care. 70% in home jobs included the care of a family pet.
I have worked in a pet grooming shop of a relative, for approximately 2 years, providing simple things such as bathing mostly dogs, and understand the need of washing out the ear canals. I worked with a relative, who both worked in a grooming shop and took care of other relatives sick
