This is my story on how my love and passion lead me To a career in healthcare. •
I was 5 years old when I realized I had a passion for healthcare and the elderly. I would volunteer at the nursing home my grandmother worked at. I volunteered at nursing homes from age 5 all the way up til I was 19. •
I’m originally from Southern California, and I made the leap to go to Kansas for college, during my stay in Kansas I felt I was missing something. I decided to go to my first love. I signed up to volunteer at a lovely nursing home in Kansas. I was 19 years old! When I started filling out the volunteer paperwork a women approached me and asked me “are you doing this for school young lady?” I quickly answered and said “no mam, this is my love and passion I’ve always volunteered and I miss volunteering for the elderly” she then looked at me and said “well I have an opening for an activities director position, and I think you would be a great fit”
My eyes lit up and all I can say was “yes, when and where” from that point on I worked day in and day out as the activities director. I loved every second of it. I told myself I’m going to be in this industry for the rest of my life. I will serve with my whole heart. Ever since that day I have moved up in this industry doing what I love. I will never forget that day and my first residents.
Ps. A note to my first residents.
I’ll always love you guys where ever you are. •
You may have questions regarding the difference between Home Care vs Home Health Care? .
Home care is “supportive” non medical care provided in the home to you or a love one. For example, assisting with activities of daily living (ADLs), personal care, meal preparation and/or running errands. Home care services allow seniors or people with disabilities to stay in the comfort of their own home while receiving the assistance they need to live a longer and comfortable life
Home health care is “skilled” medical care provided in the home as well. For example, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and/or wound care. Home health care services are geared towards people recovering from a illness or injury, recent discharge from a nursing or hospital facility, or even continuous patient education on their health condition⚕️

We also spoke about the St.Vincent parade that happens every year in brooklyn too.

Semi-electric Hospital Bed for sale or rent!!
The semi-electric hospital bed is perfect for anyone who needs a #hospital style bed at home or in a #nursinghome. Semi electric beds are medical beds that are quite similar to #fullelecteichospitalbeds. Although both types of beds use motors to raise the head and foot sections of the bed, semi electric beds use a hand crank to raise or lower the height of the bed parallel to the floor.

I will admit I am that person that will keep your pen and forget to give it back.
I created this Instagram page to document my journey as a nursing student, but I feel this page is much more. I realize I want this page to be a positive, laughable, and inspirational experience. There are to much stresses and negativity that life can bring and we all need a way to escape that. Even if it is just for a few minutes. My goal is to take someone’s bad day and change it into something positive! If that means making a fool out of myself with my memes and videos then be it. I have spoken to some kind-hearted and supportive people on this platform! I really do appreciate you guys for taking the time to check out this page. I also enjoy checking and discovering yours! Sorry for the rant, but I just felt I had to say this. I hope all of you are having a great Thursday!
A miracle is changing someone’s life.
Take a deep breath. It’s just a bad day, not a bad life.
Can anyone relate?
Anyone who works in the medical field knows it doesn’t matter what weather or holiday we have, we will always have to work no matter what.
Just another work day.
