Unit Coordinator/Manager at Bayshore Health Care Center

I have worked for the same Corporation for almost 16 years which shows that I am a dedicated and hard working person. I love taking care of the Geriatric population, this is where my heart is. I understand that the declining ability to perform familiar tasks and the loss of independence and personhood can be both frustrating and terrifying for the resident and their loved ones. This I believe is the responsibility of the caretaker to validate and provide reassurance for both the resident and family. I am a team player and I have strong communication skills
