Experienced CNA/EMT For Private Home Care
I'm an experienced 39-year-old male, native English speaking, American 4-year university educated CNA. I have 2 years of experience working at a nursing home with patients in a memory care unit with advanced dementia/Alzheimer's. I often help with physical transfers (bed-wheelchair-toilet); also taking medications to keep clients regular. With RN approval, I can give special medicines if needed. I can drive to doctor's appointments. I have taken classes in dementia care and understand the unique signs and symptoms that seniors with dementia have. I am able to cook/clean.
I have good references from RN's I've worked with. I am working towards medical school. I am on time to almost everything and write good, clear and accurate medical progress reports. I am a volunteer fire fighter/EMT with the local fire dept. With my EMT training, I often help clients that have accidentally fallen with bandaging, skin tears, lifting them up, blood pressures, blood glucose checks or calling fire dept for hospital transport. I have a clean criminal and driving record.
I'm happy to review a plan for your parent that suits them specifically and frees you up as family member to have free time.
