My experience includes six years in the industry and there would be no problem with me passing a criminal background check along with any physical exams. I am a licensed driver and do not have a problem doing in home, living with the patient, or in facility care, whichever is required of me.
My skills include great communication and interpersonal skills which enable me to work effectively with the elderly and disabled patients.

I am also able to teach these patients to care for themselves when required or training family members to assume the care of their elderly or disabled individuals.
