I have several years of senior care experience, some of which was acquired at Christiana Care, working as a patient care technician on the Oncology Unit, my other experiences are centered around elder family members that I served as a caregiver for. I performed basic vital sign documenting, temperature, heart rate, pulse and blood pressure readings. I assisted with wound care treatments, daily hygiene routines, monitoring and recording medicine intake, fluid intake and output, and testing for blood in urine and stools. My days were also spent performing light housework duties, running errands, shopping and cooking as needed. My goals are to assist those in need, and improve the quality of life for said individuals. I am an extreme extrovert, very personable, and take great pride in my work. I enjoy helping others, it gives me a sense of accomplishment to know that I positively influenced someone's quality of life. I enjoy reading, the outdoors, music, and my children. I have solely raised four very intelligent, caring, independent children, that in itself was extremely rewarding.
