I have 25+ years experience working with the elderly in many different capacities, from nursing home care to hospice. The vast majority of my experience is with private home healthcare. I've worked with those needing end-of-life care, dementia sufferers, persons with special needs, and individuals living with cancer. I have a Bachelor's degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences, and a strong background in medical terminology and practice. I feel comfortable dispensing medication and with special circumstances like portacath cleaning and needle insertion. I am also comfortable assisting in all personal and medical hygiene. I have a genuine love for this work. I am a compassionate individual who will care for your loved one with respect and a deep consideration for all their personal needs. I feel comfortable with medical transportation (i. e. appointments, pharmacy needs), and with food preparation and light housekeeping.
