Phyllis’s Bio

I am a mother of 4 children and 2 step-children. I have worked for the past 12 years in the health care profession in 3 different states and in different jobs.
I was a Qualified Medication Aid in Indiana where I passed Meds to clients in a mental health facility in Plymouth, Indiana.
I moved to Clayton, NC because of my husband's job change. I worked as a Certified Nurse's Aid in 2 Home Health agencies, one of which is still operating- Action Home Care of Smithfield, NC.
I then moved to Mentor, Ohio, again because of my husband's job change. I have worked there as a State Trained Nurse's Aid for the past 7 years.
I have had experience helping elders and children with various care needs from supervising medicine intake to respite care for parents of an 8 year old. I have prepared food, purchased groceries and medicines, cleaned homes, washed dishes, and given all levels of personal care from bed baths to showers. I can help men and women with shaving , brushing teeth and hair. I am very flexible and honor a client's wishes as to how they want things done, as long as what they want is safe for them. For example, I will not give a diabetic food they should not have.
