I escort residents on activities away from the property as assigned. I assist with the registration of residents for trips and programs. I conduct various activities at the direction of the life enrichment coordinator. I maintain necessary activity supplies, which may include outside purchasing. I assist in the interviewing of residents to determine interests, talents and satisfaction. I maintain general observation of residents and share information with the staff. I follow departmental budget guidelines.
I spent more than 10 years caring for my grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in her home and while in a care facility. This experience taught me how to provide acute care with effective methods. Life changing experience in and out. I want to be able to provide care to patients who need a caregiver.
