Meet Yolanda
I took care of a 91-year-old Alzheimer's woman in a retirement home as a live-in for 3.5 years. When the same patient was moved to a nursing home, I continued the care hourly for a least 8 hours/day.
I worked in the hospital for four years and elderly patients remember me well because I use to sing while giving care. I also worked as an activity aide in a nursing home. Since 2007 up to the present I did mostly home health cases: first stage of dementia; undergo dialysis in the hospital; tube feeding (trained by the provider); nebulizer treatment; oxygen treatment. Since 4th grade I lived with my grandparents who sent me to college. My grandmother died without care from me because I got married and moved out of town. In the same way as my father died without any help from me.
I started doing this job in memory of these two loved ones. As I was reared by my parents, our respect and love for the elderly is always emphasized.
My goal is to let these people enjoy the last chapter of their lives despite their physical condition by my talent of singing and engaging them in interesting conversations.
