Part-time Care Giver Available
I've been an RN for 18 years. I've worked in the following settings; long term care, acute care, intermediate critical care, home health, school nurse substitute and ambulatory infusion services.
In long term care I cared for the geriatric population, including those with dementia and Alzheimer's. I fell in love with them. They are a special group, and need to have folks around who truly care for, and about them.
As a home care RN, I had the hon our of delivering care to clients on their turf. Assisting them to remain in their homes was a joy.
Finally, I had the great fortune to care for my in-laws before they passed. I dressed wounds, tracked, administered, and monitored medication, drove them to appointments, and was their medical advocate. I kept the house, prepared meals, and bathed them. It was a privilege.
Our elderly deserve competent care delivered with warmth, love, respect, compassion, allowing them their dignity.
I am an RN who does just that.
