Tiffeney’s Bio

I began caring for the elderly at a very young age. Some of my favorite childhood memories were of visiting local convalescent homes with my siblings and father. We would sing to the patients there, read to them, bring them flowers and their favorite special treats. As soon as I was old enough, I began working as a certified nurse aid at a convalescent home in my neighborhood. I went on to become a CMA (certified med aide) where I was trained to administer medicine and other controlled substances. I have cared for many people with a variety of special needs. My job description ranged from activities as simple as spending time with the residents helping them move about and making sure they were comfortable, helping them stay ambulatory by providing them with range of motion exercises to avoid atrophy of muscle, caring for those who were completely bed ridden needing to be bathed, changed and turned every 2 hours as to avoid bed sores,to feeding and fixing pureed meals for those who had difficulty swallowing. I've also worked with dementia patients and those suffering from Alzheimers.
