Experienced HHA/NA, Dementia And Hospice Exp. Available Part Time.
I am a middle-aged woman with many years experience in senior care. Most recently I cared for my wonderful mother for many years in our home until her passing at age 92, six months ago.
I helped the hospice team with every facet of her care. I love to cook and bake and enjoy making nutritious meals and feeding when necessary. I am experienced with dementia patients, also those returning from the hospital with delirium. I have an AS degree, and spent several years teaching Medical Assisting, prior to teaching, I spent my career in nursing homes, Alzheimer's care, in phlebotomy, as well as going to clients homes drawing blood, taking and recording vitals for insurance companies.
I bring with me patience, kindness, a genuine love for people, many years experience with medication, catheter care, personal care and have the ability to sit with the person and read to them, pray with or read the Bible to them, or just listen to stories of their life and what's important to them.
