I have many year experience working as a Certified Nursing assistant, where I perfected all the aspects of senior care (skin care, oral care, hygiene, peri-care, nutrition, special feeders, colostomy bags, Hoyer lifts and proper body mechanics for assisted transfers, Gait belt, Hospice care, decubidus ulcer care and much more.
I also owned my own business where I assisted stroke survivors (and their families) to help the survivor become reacquainted with their home after a stroke (to help relearn daily tasks, safety of the home, re-organization to make life easier, etc.).
In addition, I worked as an Activity Coordinator in a 127 nursing facility providing recreational services for seniors in a positive setting, promoting independence. I have also mastered Wheelchair dancing.
My passion is for all seniors, but have a special place in my heart for clients with Alzheimer's or Dementia and Stroke survivors. I have worked with many types of illnesses and have much patience and love to share.
My heart loves to take care of others (and I'm good at it). I believe in treating with 110% dignity, respect and in being trustworthy.
