I have been a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant for 17 years, with the majority of those years working in skilled nursing facilities and in Assisted Living Facilities. I preferred these settings as I love the senior population, they truly are the greatest generation. I am constantly amazed by their experiences, their grace and wisdom. I not only have experience assisting patients with their activities of daily living, but as a therapist I am trained to maximize their independence without compromising their safety. I have experience with dementia, orthopedic recovery, Parkinson's, cardiac precautions, transfer training, fall prevention, and ensuring safety with medication management. I am proficient with using appropriate adaptive equipment with bathing, dressing, toileting, self feeding and transfer safety. I am changing to a caregiver because I miss the 1:1 interaction with seniors- helping someone maximize their quality of life is what I do what I do best!

I worked with Tammy for seven years in a rehab therapy department as a physical therapist. Tammy worked as a certified occupational assistant with mostly geriatric patients. Tammy demonstrated extreme empathy and kindness both physically and emotionally to her patients. She was professional, punctual, and organized in her duties. She was responsible for independently scheduling her caseload and performing activities of daily living with patients in both their rooms and in the therapy gym. I can say without reservation that I would highly recommend Tammy for any job position.
