Full-Time Or Part-Time But I'm Negotiable
I have encountered many experiences working with elderly men and woman, not only that, but elderly with many types of disabilities like Alzheimer's, bipolar and schizophrenia disease. Learning how to interact with the patients was very challenging, but it was interesting because I got a chance to learn one's personality and that was very touching for me. I wanted all of my patients to feel comfortable and open up to me when they felt the need. I have always had a passion to work with the elderly because I care for my grandmother everyday, and I love that woman! So caring for her made me want to help elderly people that can't help themselves. They are some loving and caring people with lots of knowledge to give to us young people and if it weren't for them, we wouldn't have any one to care for. So as you can see, this is part of my everyday life and not just something I want to do, but something I have to do because I love it.
