Part-time / Full-time Caregiver
My first encounter being a Caregiver began with an adorable and eloquent lady named Nan. I was employed for a year. She taught me how to play Scrabble and could really play the piano. I assisted with Personal care, prepared meals, light housekeeping and we went on outings. In 1990 I received training from the Red Cross as a Home Health Assistant while working as a Patient Escort at North Charles General Hospital. I cared for several clients until I was hired by the Visiting Nurses Association in 1991, for seven years. I also worked for Medstar / Harbor Hospital as a Sitter for four and half years. I also volunteer at Victory Ministries of Christ Daycare Center. I recently completed training once again with the Red Cross, this time as a CNA/GNA and am waiting to receive my Certifications. I have also completed Background Checks, Physical and First Aide, available upon request. I currently work part/time - full/time as a Direct Support Professional for the Arc of Howard County.
