My name is Lisa Aiston. My experience in the health care field started in 2005 as a volunteer at Sherman West Court (SWC) nursing home in Elgin Illinois. I started volunteering for SWC after the passing of my grandparents and uncle. I was very close to my grandparents and my uncle who was physically and mentally challenged. I would regularly visit and provide day-to-day care for them, particularly as they grew older and less able to care for themselves. After their passing, my volunteer work at SWC allowed me to continue to care for others.
In 2006, I resigned my position as senior scientist at Huff & Huff, Inc., an environmental engineering firm, and started taking classes towards a degree in nursing. I received my ADN from Waubonsee Community College in July 2012.
I am correctly working RPN at Health at Home. I was a full time case manager but found myself working 60 hours a week. Health at Home is a great agency and 99% of my patients are in highly rated senior communities which is not true for all home health agencies. I enjoy working PRN as I can choose my patients and how many hours I work. I never wanted to work in a hospital, Medsurg is not for me. Most of my nursing career I have been a geriatric nurse. My husband has a good job and pension so I do not have to work full time.
I started the nursing program at age 46 while supporting myself because I wanted to take care of others. Many my patient's family members have thanked me for my patience and level of commitment.
I did not have any children of my own but I have two step grand daughters I that enjoy spending time with.
I would like to meet your family and further discuss this opportunity.
