Starting in my college years, I completed a week long 'Certified Home Health Aide' course and worked privately for families who had a loved one in a nursing home. I've worked through an agency, going to different homes as needed, although I'm seeking mobility/ companion care now. Over the years, I've worked with seniors, taking them for appointments, etc. and had my 90 year father-in-law live with us for almost a year. Many years ago, I had a job as Activity Director in a Senior Housing facility in north Jersey. I've just always enjoyed the company of seniors and feel I have the patience and flexibility needed to work with this age group - which I'm now proudly part of.
