Katelyn S.|Cortland, NY
36 yrs old
Part-Time Care Giver
I have taken care of my ailing parents for the past 17 years. I have cooked, given proper nutrition based on diets (kidney and diabetic diet) grocery shopped, taken to appointments, nursed (including wound dressings, blood pressure checks, insulin checks and shots, giving out medications appropriately and accurately, weight management, oxygen monitoring, IV and fluid replacements). I am not a nurse, just a very loving and caring daughter that does the job of a home health care aid, home care nurse, wound care nurse, maid, lawn and gardener, home repair services, laundry care, cares for pets and does so much more.
I truly love working with people and being around people. I helped to take care of my grandmother while she ailed from a heart attack due to chemotherapy and radiation treatments prior to her death in 2002.
I originally worked for nearly 6 months at Cortland Regional Medical Center as an Admitting Rep in the ER on weekends for two 12 hour shifts.
