I worked as a physical therapist assistant when I lived in New Jersey. I primarily worked in nursing homes with elderly patients. It was my day to day interaction working with the elderly I found very rewarding. In addition, for two different periods of time, I served as a companion. Currently, I help two elderly ladies with light house keeping and transportation. I have a Certificate in Gerontology. Currently, I am seeking a position as a companion and/or transportation provider for medical appointments, errands, etc.
Furthermore, during my parent's senior years, I looked in on them frequently to make sure their needs were met. Through my experience tending to my elderly parents, I understand the level of care desired for loved one(s).
