Meet Lynn

I have been a PCA for 10 years. I took care of my grandmother who had Alzheimer's. She basically raised me and I took care of her until she needed to go into a nursing home she was 61.

I've worked with a woman who had MS and a woman with Rheumatoid Arthritis My responsibilities were to get them out of bed and into their wheelchair. I assisted with all ADL's, starting with breakfast, (my client with MS needed me to feed her) brushing and flossing teeth, bathing, emptying and cleaning catheter, getting them dressed and ready for the day.

I also did dishes, washed...

I have been a PCA for 10 years. I took care of my grandmother who had Alzheimer's. She basically raised me and I took care of her until she needed to go into a nursing home she was 61.

I've worked with a woman who had MS and a woman with Rheumatoid Arthritis My responsibilities were to get them out of bed and into their wheelchair. I assisted with all ADL's, starting with breakfast, (my client with MS needed me to feed her) brushing and flossing teeth, bathing, emptying and cleaning catheter, getting them dressed and ready for the day.

I also did dishes, washed under garments in sink, vacuumed, fed 2 cats and a dog. Depending on the client I am with, I go to choir practice or I take them out for walks. For one client, we'd go for a drive around familiar places to stimulate her. I have experience working with Aggressive/Progressive RA, Dementia, Cerebral Palsy, and diabetic clients. The reason I love my job is because I enjoy the feeling of helping someone in need and seeing their smile when I get there. I enjoy making scrapbooks. I love scrap booking and making cards. I send the cards to the troops so that they can send one to their loved ones. I am a responsible, reliable, patient, and caring person.

Diane D. says:
Lynn was scheduled to work for us; she no showed the first day after confirming the day before. We were initially genuinely concerned as she seemed very sweet natured so thought something may have happened. She never responded to multiple calls made to her. It was extremely upsetting and offensive to the persons needing care.

Lynn B. responds:
After Interviewing with both the Client and the Social worker over a 2 month period, I got another offer for a position. I told the woman helping the client that after not hearing back from her I took the other position. I think this was a case of miscommunication. I am truely sorry for any disrespect to this client.
