Health Science For The Medically Challenged.
Responds within a few hours
I specialize in health science for the physically challenged, with exercise and activities to improve function. Many people appreciate my ability to keep their loved ones moving, when others can't.
I volunteered at a hospital and worked a for a company providing in home care and stretching for people with disabilities, so I could go back to school to work in health care. After earning a master of science degree in physical therapy, I worked in nursing homes with a variety of patients such as: post-surgical joint replacements, stroke or neurological conditions, amputees, spinal cord injuries, Alzheimer's, dementia, weakness, etc. Including one and a half years doing in-home care of children and youth who had developmental delays or disabilities, I worked for 8 years in that field. Then I pursued other opportunities in science and education, teaching math and science. Now I teach science part time. I have been an independent Direct Care Worker providing in-home care since October 2014.
