Profile

I have always loved working with people and have been well liked in all my jobs. What brought me to this type of work started when I was a child and I loved spending time with my great-grandmother, helping her and visiting her. Later as an adult my elderly next door neighbor fell and needed some light in home care and taken on errands and shopping. I loved helping her and watching the joy in her face each time I came over to visit or to help with errands. In the last two years I decided to make it my living and went to school in Missouri to become a certified nursing assistant. Since then I have worked in a long term nursing facility with the elderly. I have worked with dementia and Alzheimer's patients, cancer patients and rehabilitation patients. Most recently I worked in a hospital in a Neuro med surge unit with patients recovering from surgery from spinal and brain surgery. I also worked in ICU on the same unit as well as in rehabilitation and the Telemetry unit. I worked with adults mostly 50 years and older. My duties have been grooming, dressing, feeding, assisting with mobility, taking vitals, toileting, walking, light cleaning. I love taking care of others and look forward to continuing in this field. I love helping in any way I can mostly to brighten someone else's day.
