Registered Nurse With Years Of Experience Working With Elderly!!!
My name is Kate , and I am a Registered Nurse with a current license in good standing with the Alabama Board of Nursing. The focus of my 8 years of Nursing has been Hospice, Long Term Care, and Inpatient Rehab Nursing (Hips, Knees, and Strokes not Drugs/ Alcohol), so I am very proficient in working with geriatric patients. I am passionate about the care of Dementia patients and am very good at addressing the issues that are involved with that very complex diagnosis, and I have a great understanding of the other chronic progressive disease processes that affect older populations including but not limited to: COPD, Congestive Heart Failure, Parkinson's, Type II Diabetes. I have a deep understanding of the issues that accompany these disease processes and aging as well including constipation, urinary tract infections, weight loss, confusion, and dehydration... to name a few. I can provide companionship and assist with hygiene.
