I have worked as a private duty LPN/caregiver since May 2007. I am experienced with Alzheimer's/Dementia, diabetic accu checks and insulin injections, COPD/CHF/emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, G-tube feeding, and wound care. Comfortable providing activities of daily living (ADL) of the elderly. I have worked as a hospice nurse (on-call and caring for actively dying patients). During this time I cared for the actively dying patient providing comfort meds to relieve pain and anxiety. I've also had the privilege of helping the patient's family understand the stages of death. I prepare delicious and nutritious foods and am a delightful companion. I believe blood sugar levels can be maintained in the appropriate scale (70-110) by adhering to a healthy diet. Am well educated (BA from University of Arizona), well traveled (France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey), well read and have a paralegal certificate from the Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas.
