Hi. My name is Dawn. I'm a kind, caring, and ambitious lady who thoroughly enjoys working with the elderly. I was a CNA for years and worked in the nursing home environment until I decided to get a higher degree. I was halfway through the LPN program when I had to drop out to care for my elderly parents. I cared for them the last 10 yrs of their lives My mom was a RN who specialized in geriatric care, so I grew up learning a lot about elderly care. My latest client had MS. She was a paraplegic with a Suprapubic catheter and colostomy bag. Sadly, she recently and very suddenly had a massive heart attack/stroke and passed away. I have experience in catheter care, colostomy care, wound care, and using a Hoyer lift and shower chair. I enjoy listening to the wisdom and stories of the elderly, and nothing makes me any happier than watching them be able to live out their lives at home. I'm a hard worker, a team player and I'm available immediately.
