Note-State of California did a thorough background check. I received a home care aide license Oct.2,2020. I have loved children since I was a child. At age 5, my best friend's mother was a nurse. I admired & loved her mother & wanted to be a nurse too. Time to choose college courses, I decided to #1 take RN program & made #2 natural resources. I do love the out of doors & had hobbies such as several types of skiing, fishing,& was lucky to have an older neighbor with his life immersed in horses & horse packing in the mountains. I believe much in honoring our parents. After 20 yrs working in various areas of nursing, especially in the hospital, I took intensive care of 1st my Father, until his precious life passed. My Mother then needed alot of care also. Their care overlapped for about 2 yrs. My Read more Mother's care was close to 8 yrs. Their combined time that I assisted them was 18 yrs continuously. They were in & out of nursing homes & hospitals and their health & prosperity exceeded all expectations when they were at home under my direction, & not the institutions'. I was able to give my parents intensive care with the help of a physically strong caregiver for heavier duties. I prefer dogs & do enjoy some cats, & like other pets. I enjoy being playful with kids, teaching, & reading with them.
