Formerly Certified/State Tested Geriatric Nurse Assistant With Extensive Experience Ranging From Basic Assist To Total Care
I became a state certified nurse assistant in 1999. My experience includes mostly skilled nursing facilities, but I also did in home care briefly for an agency. I am well versed in all levels of care ranging from basic assistance with activities of daily living (ADL's) to total care. I am experienced with a gait belt, Hoyer lift, and all other means of transferring patients from wheelchairs to toilet, bed, chair, etc. I am able to take vitals, measure input, output, perform incontinence care, shower, bathe, care for colostomies, perform range of motion exercises, and just about everything else that your loved one might need. I love to cook, clean, and provide companionship. Whether it's reading newspaper articles, playing Scrabble, doing jigsaw puzzles, or simply watching a television program, I am willing to provide compassionate, loving and quality care. There is a great sense of enjoyment and fulfillment that comes with helping those who aren't able to help themselves. I will also encourage your loved one to assist in their own care when possible. I believe maintaining any level of activity possible helps them to feel valuable and helps to maintain their level of independence.
