I had been a nurse until 2015, then I retired. I enjoyed working with the elderly in long term care, assisted living , private duty and I was also a nurse educator to nurses and nursing assistants.
since 2015 I have been assisting my father (who is 100) with bathing, grooming, dressing, medication administration, doctors appointments, ambulating him with a walker, fall prevention and food preparation. He also had a radiation burn that required treatment. When I was a nurse I was certified in geriatric nursing, CPR instructor and a certified wound care specialist I work well with the client with dementia. I believe the elderly are our wisdom. I am currently in an RN Refresher program. I plan on graduating and being a licensed RN in May.
