I have been a nurse for more than 15 years. I have worked primarily with seniors in dementia and hospice units. I specialized in wound care and medication management, especially for patients in the home setting. I have been consistently praised for having a calming effect on patients and their families. I believe that reminding patients and their families that there can still be a sense of fun and joy in the day-to-day activities is a primary responsibility of a true Medical Professional. Families have also told me when I am caring for their loved one, that they finally have found someone that they can completely trust and feel at ease when leaving their loved one. It is an honor to be allowed into someone's home and given the privilege of providing care for their beloved family member.
