As a Registered Nurse, I have encountered people of all ages and mental/physical stages of development. However, I have an affinity for those with special needs. This past year, I worked as Private Caregiver for a school-aged boy with learning disabilities, a serious medical condition, and other special needs. I engaged him in after school activities, assisted with meals, and incorporated learning activities. Before this, I had worked as a babysitter for 8+ years. Also, most recently, I had worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant in nursing homes and private home settings for 4+years. These past experiences, along with the 700+ hours clinical hours in hospital settings gave me a chance to work with people of many disabilities and special needs. Cognitive delay, amputations, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, physical impairments, autism, ADHD-- I have encountered it all. I love this line of work so much because it is a chance to... care. For me, caring for those with special needs is about making a human connection and sharing a part of yourself to help better the life of someone else. This feeling is absolutely priceless.
