Experienced Caregiver/Personal Assistant/Companion
I have 15+ years experience in the medical field, as a medical assistant, and private caregiver. I have worked with patients with COPD, emphysema, cancer, Alzheimer's, dementia, pulmonary embolism, renal failure, DVT, seizure disorders and epilepsy, heart conditions, and post-surgery. I went to vocational school shortly after high school, received my medical assisting certificate, and started working in doctor offices, giving injections, taking vitals, breathing treatments, x-rays, etc. I later discovered, after working with elderly patients in doctor offices, that I would like to work with seniors one on one. I started working as a private caregiver 7 years ago and find it very fulfilling. I am a very compassionate, patient and caring individual who is dedicated to helping those in need. I also took care of my father for several years before he passed. He had COPD, emphysema and lung cancer and suffered many years with these conditions. Taking care of my father made me even more passionate about caring for others.
