My working style is based on the Person Centered Care and Bio-Psycho-Social Model. I focus on the person first and the illness second. I use reminiscence as a working tool in order to discover who the person was prior to her/his diagnoses. I use this knowledge in times of crisis and during Sun-Downing to deflect any agitation. It allows me to interact and redirect the person by using her life experience and achievements which creates a very positive connection. It brings the person out of isolation, validates the person as an individual with a full life of experiences and history.
I take my work very seriously, pay attention to details and use common sense to every day tasks and challenges.
My personality is very positive, uplifting, gregarious with a great sense of humor which i consider mandatory.
P.S. I no longer take on Ambulatory Cases, or total lack of mobility, lifts and transfers. I assist the person when getting up from a chair "recliner" assist when going to bed or coming out of bed, assist with showering/bathing for balance, stability, safety and proper hygiene.
I can provide you with my First-Aid, CPR. Drivers License, Drivers Abstract and all my Professional References.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
It is in knowledge that we can walk the road less travel.
