I have a passion to help others by listening, being a shoulder to cry on, laughing, assist with in-home rehab after surgery, tracking medicine schedule, preparing meals conducive to individual diet, patient therapy, house cleaning and assisting in dressing/bathing.
Most recently I helped a patient immediately out of knee replacement surgery for 5 days, 24/7.
In addition, I took a patient into my own home for 1 1/2 yrs who was rendered disabled & homeless from a botched hysterectomy & various other medical problems. The system failed to provide her with any financial assistance or proper medical follow-up care. As a result she required therapy for walking, special dietary needs, driving assistance to appts. & someone to show care, concern & love to help her through her depression. Thankfully, the system finally acknowledged their errors and remedied her financial problems & health needs.
After 30+ yrs in office environments, I'm seeking a different path in my life to helping others.
