I love Senior Citizens...my best friend is almost 88 years old. I'm 51 and have time on my hands until I find a job (hoping to get in at the University). I was a nursing student 30 years ago (didn't finish in that field) and have basic skills/knowledge/common sense to assist someone in their home. I can take a BP w/a cuff and stethoscope, take a pulse and record both w/accuracy. Part of my curriculum was spent at a VA Hospital, and prior to that, I was a hospital volunteer and a temp Physician's assistant.
I'm compassionate, patient and intuitive as to the needs of those who require assistance. My preference is to not get into a total care situation, but more of an assist. I don't mind preparing meals, doing laundry and minor housekeeping duties. While in college, I was a home health aide, working more or less as a companion evenings and nights and attending school during the day.
As I have a family, my preference is to work the hours that they aren't home ~ Mon. - Fri. 8am - 3pm. I do have to go home to feed my dog, roughly between noon and 1:30. Ideally, I'd only work 2-3 days/wk., allowing me time to take care of my own home.
I am available now through 12/20, and will have to play it by ear after the 3rd of January as I hope to have procured a job upon my return from a family vacation. If I've not, I should be able to continue providing home care.
I wish to work no more than 30 minutes from Almond, but will consider farther w/the hourly rate reflecting the distance.
