Senior Care Giver Looking For Part-time, Possibly Full-time Work
I have worked in healthcare with for over 8+ yrs experience. During this time I have become familiar, and confident in dealing with first-aid, CPR, wound care, administering oral medication, administering some injections such as vitamin b12, insulin, steroids, antibiotics, etc. I understand the importance of infection control and providing clean and sterile care. I am familiar with assisting in bathing and helping with all other activities of daily living. I have taken numerous classes in anatomy, health sciences, biology, and psychology. I am a very responsible and extremely compassionate person. I believe our elders deserve respect and dignity as we care for them. My husband and I have young 2 children. I decided to take a break from the work force, in order to be more available for them, but I really feel the need to do something like this with the flexibility I have now. I am also very comfortable with any pets, I am an animal lover. We have 4 sweet dogs that are family to us.
