I have tried different jobs and the job that I see I am happiest with is when I am able to serve and help those in need. It is rewarding for me to see someone smile because of the help you have given them. I have been caring for a family for seven years, along with volunteer work for an elderly for four years for training experience since I wanted to pursue a career in nursing/healthcare. Currently I am a companion for a 90-year-old lady with Alzheimer's and with limited mobility in a nursing facility in Fairfax. I do the night shifts, usually from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. I prefer this schedule because I am always taking classes during the day. I have also experience caring for the elderly during the day, including bathing, toileting, grooming, accompany them to doctor's appointment, and doing grocery shopping for them. With instructions I can pretty much learn anything. I am also a very active person who loves doing marathons, and I include what I know with physical training and apply it as a physical therapy for the elderly to help them still be active. Nothing too taxing, just the right exercise needed everyday.
