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!
