Independant Profile

I believe in delivering my services to individuals and families with special needs to enhance their daily activities and improve their quality of life.

b) Describe yourself and your background/experience with individuals with disabilities.

I am an experienced Level 1 Waiver Provider, board certified for DD individuals, med pass, CPR, and First Aid certificate holder, as well as STNA. I have earned a BA in Health Management. I believe in delivering loving, caring, and gentle services to uphold the dignity, privacy, and self-worth of my clients and working with family members, guardians, medical providers, and team members to ensure all services are seamless in a targeted goal oriented manner. I prefer working with older female individuals ranging in age from forty and older. I encourage the use of crafts, going to movies, gardening, and outings to foster social activities.

c) Describe any specialized training or education you have received to prepare you to work with individuals with disabilities. Describe any areas of expertise.

I trained with the Sunshine Agency for expressed one-on-one delivery of support and services for the care of DD individuals including creating ISPs, behavioral support plans (if needed), skill development plans, med pass certification, and monitoring the effectiveness of all plans meeting the needs of the individual. As a STNA having 30 plus years experience of Hospice, individuals with DD, Alzheimer's and Dementia patients, visually and hearing impaired individuals, partial and full paralysis, seizure disorder, and mental health care. My experience also includes working with Diabetics, Heart and Stroke patients, and training other STNA applicants for hands-on mobility training to become State Certified. I also earned my BA in Health Care Management to focus on the managerial aspects of Health Care, but my primary love remains the one-on-one satisfaction of improving the life of my clients.

I prefer two 17 hour weekly shifts, and every other weekend delivering 24 hour team care for a total of 120 hours every two weeks (Average of 60 hours per week). These hours include day shifts, night shifts, and overnight care. I am willing to cover Holidays and vacations, and travel within 30 miles of East or Central Toledo, Ohio. Will consider other situations on a case by case basis.

k) Describe how services will be provided in the event of your illness or emergency.

At the time of employment, I would request to set up a secondary provider or agency to be used for such purposes.

l) Describe how you would address individual or family concerns.

I would discuss any concerns with appropriate staff (i.e. SAS worker, medical provider, family or guardian) to come up with a plan to improve on any concerns or issues.

m) Describe specific strategies for increasing community inclusion and involvement for individuals served.

My strategies include Church, day-hab services, trips to local parks, nature day outings, museums, zoos, movies, bowling, sporting activities or any activities of interest to the individual.

I am a dedicated provider that serves from my heart, so I commit to the individual to provide the best for them even if it means recommending another provider. My sole concern is improving the well being and abilities of any client to live a fulfilled and happy life.
