I cared for my own mother short-term in our home following her surgery for lung cancer and two strokes. I work at two local hospitals as a Per Diem "sitter" for patients of all ages while hospitalized for dementia, Alzheimer's, alcohol and/or drug overdoses, suicidal/homocidal ideations, Special Needs confusion, etc. I also worked for almost two years as a driver for Medicaid/Medicare patients requiring transportation to their doctor/counseling appointments. I have strives to work as a patient advocate with their family members in order to help them get the care and services available to them.
