I've worked in nursing homes as a nurse's aide, then did home care as an LPN. I worked 10 years in a major medical center and cared for many seniors with a variety of care needs.
I think what makes me good at this is that many of my friends are in their 70s, 80s and 90s, so I see older people as functioning, vibrant, interesting people who have contributed a lot to this world. I understand that time and disease can take it's toll on a person so when that happens, I can provide the necessary care, safety, and companionship that the person deserves. I'm patient, knowledgeable, and work well with families. With me there, your time with your parent will be what it should be; a nice visit with someone you love very much.
