I have been working with Geriatrics for almost 20 years. I have either worked through agencies or through direct employment in different places around California. I worked with both male and female patients in various ages with different Diagnosis namely: Alzheimers, Dementia, Diabetes , Parkinson's Disease, with Catheter and Colostomy care, Feeding Tube, Bedridden, Heavy Lifting (transferred to / from bed to chair and vice versa) . and even hospice care or even just a need for companion to mention a few. I have also handled doctor's visits/Managed medications, bathing, dressing, light house keeping and cooking ( I love to cook ). I have also managed patients that need to undergo range of motion, physical therapy and exercise programs for the disabled. I love this job because I grew up with my grandma and been living and taking care of her since I was a child. Thus, I am attached to seniors ( elderly ) and understand their attitudes , attend to their needs and anticipate their wants.
