Recent Occupational Therapy Graduate Who Is An Empathetic And Passionate Individual.
I am very passionate in working with the geriatric population and have received my Masters degree in OT and am in the process of receiving my MA OTR license. I am looking for the opportunity to provide care and assistance to families and their loved ones. During grad school, I spent 4 months providing care for a senior at home before transitioning into a nursing home. I provided assistance with meal preparation, medication management, personal hygiene, companionship and errands. I've had experience in my level I fieldwork during school at the Soldiers Home of Holyoke as well as Our Lady of the Angels Convent in Enfield, CT. At these fieldwork placements I worked with clients in functional activities to improve endurance, memory, strength and overall quality of life. I am also Dementia Care Certified and CPR/BLS certified.
