Hello! I'm currently employed as a social worker, but have recently rediscovered my love of providing hands on care for seniors. I'm currently working part-time as a resident assistant in a memory care facility, which I absolutely love! Prior to social work, I was a CNA at a nursing home for about 5 years.
I would really enjoy providing care in people's own homes. I want to help keep your friend or family member at home as long as possible and get to know them (and their families) on a deeper level. As a social worker I am skilled at fostering connections with those I serve. I am able to care for not just physical needs, but emotional needs as well.
I am considering re-attaining my CNA certification. I'm just not sure what that looks like right now with Covid! I have also completed CPR training in the past and am willing to renew that as well.
