I would like to be a carecompanion because I find that elderly are very intersting to talk with as one gets to hear about thier life and all the knowledge thaey have. I used to sit with elderly patients ina nursing home that my husband ws employed through and I found it a joy to be helpful to those who do not get visits from family or friends. I am only able to lift up to 10 pounds for less than 3 hours out of an 8 hour shift, after that I am only able to lift 2 pounds. I can help individuals get dressed, groom themself, assist with bathing, taking medication, and general company. I love to play card and board games, word search puzzles, read, and doodle.
I have a positive outlook, a good sence of humor, I care about the elderly, I am fun to be around, fun and above all caring. I would treat each patient as my grandmother would want me to... with respect and patients.
