My name is Lindsay, I am a 29-year-old caring, fun girl from Edmonds with a background in medicine (2 years in hospital and nursing home settings) and 4+ years of household management and nannying with the same family. Currently at a private adult care home for Alzheimer's/dementia patients., caring for 6 residents. I have a great sense of humor, as well as the ability to "wear different hats". I have common sense and I know when to have fun, when to be serious, and when to roll with the punches. I think family, friendships, and companionship are extremely important and valuable at any age or walk of life. What I don't think everyone realizes is, you don't always have to be blood related to make an important difference in someone's life. I would love to share anything you may want to know about myself, just ask!
I'm CPR and Defib. Certified, & NAR certification. I have nurse delegation core, and diabetes. I have a prior license as Certified Nursing Assistant, however my past license (obtained in 2008) lapsed so I recently retook my CNA coursework, and have received my certificate, and have my state license exam scheduled.
Thank you for your time!
