Profile

I started working in patient care right out of high school to supplement my school income. I have worked in 2 large Trauma 1 hospitals in California. Experience in Dietary restrictions/special menu planning, patient services,patient escort, medicals records, and Radiology. I always loved helping my patients in any way possible. A family member suffered her first stroke/HA in her 50's lived to 85. I have been her primary care giver for 9 years overseeing all modes of PT,OT,ST and music therapy. Patient advocacy. She suffered from CHF, PVD, Alzheimer's/dementia. Most recent PT is 94 YO wheelchair bound w/memory impairment, nerve damage. It takes so little to have someone enjoy their day, make them smile. The least we can do is show compassion and empathy for the ones we care for. I have also done pet therapy with my dog at ALF's and NH's. So pets are no problem.
