The following,is an article written by Jerry Brindley when she was a Senior Aide in Decatur:
Becoming a Senior Aide was a big step in my life as far as taking care of the elderly and seeing to their needs. I have had years of experience from my parents-in-law and our neighbors. But to actually go into a home and help someone I have never known was and is totally different.
After my first month or two, I came to know and love these dear people. To do things for them that they could not do was very rewarding. I have lengthened my prayer list to include all of my new family, as that is how I feel about these wonderful people. To clean up a bathroom, where they physically could not, made me see and feel love, rather than disgust. To go to a grocery store and buy the week 's food for my ladies made me have a spring in my step, rather than the drudgery of grocery buying I used to feel buying my own food. To sit and hear a suffering individual 's problems- I try to console that person and advert attention to a happier subject-is a heart-rending experience. I show my growing love to all of my clients, and I am getting back twice as much love. I have ladies in wheelchairs that depend solely on me to change their linens on the bed and run the vacuum. There are ladies so very tired and weak their eyes really shine when I come knocking on the door. They all are so appreciative for all that I do, for the time we sit and talk to the time I clean their bathroom. I have never seen so much …show more content…
This program has meant so much to all of my ever grateful clients and has meant the world to me. I just thank God every day for using me in this way. It made me open my eyes in thankfulness to the physical properties that I possess and was not aware of others losing theirs. With this program in effect it provides the clients comfort to know they can still stay at home with some

As I am quickly approaching the end of my senior, I am looking back at how far I have come since freshman year and everything that Henley High School has helped me accomplish in my life. In preparation for the life that every senior must experience after school, the senior capstone project was put in place to help seniors find out what they would suit them as career and give them some of the necessary tools in achieving that. Part of the capstone was earning service hours at a non profit organization, that can go on a resume. With serving came a facilitator, who guides one’s service, and also the challenges and success of the service itself. To Provide help on future careers, Henley High School also provided an opportunity to take the CIS test
I began volunteering at my town 's nursing home in high school. Initially, I volunteered as an arts and craft aide, coloring and drawing with the patients, but soon after my sister I transformed that time slot into a performance hour, doing our gymnastics, hip-hop, ppm, cheer, and kickline routines for the patients. It was very rewarding to see the patients smile in amazement and awe and also knowing that they looked forward to seeing me each weekend. At the same it was sad to see familiar faces disappear. After I acquired Home Health Aide certificate in the summer of 2013, I was able to help physically care for the patients.
The elderlies are people who have enough problems and things to worry about in their life’s and would not like to have more, putting up with us volunteers. The Valley Grande Manor is at 1212 South Bridge Avenue Weslaco, TX it is a place for elderly who have no family or anybody else to take care of them. I started to volunteer there for my class English 1302, as a project for my future, to gather data on how these nurses take care of them. When I first applied to volunteer they were so many elderly it remind me of many horror movies because it was wheelchairs, needles, and a big empty old cafeteria that was clean, but not remodeled. It was not comfortable until I talked to this man sitting alone before entering the main building of the nursing
I began college in 2014 at the age of 58 years-old to change my area of employment and do something that is far more interesting to me, working within the social services field. I realize the fact I was brought up by two dysfunctional, abusive parents in a chaotic home lead me to search out that same type of familiar relationship when I left home at the age of seventeen. In short, I married a domestic violence abuser and alcoholic when I was 19 years-old and had 5 children. Ten years into the marriage, when I had finally reached the end of my rope, a local police officer helped me to obtain a Protection from Abuse order and removed my husband from the home. This era was the birth of the Protection from Abuse orders and for me and this new
This senior project will teach me to have good time management and self determination. In order for me to complete my senior project and get a good grade on it those two things are extremely important! I know that it will be a struggle to be able to do my senior project along with all the work form my other classes, but I know that i can do It and make a good grade! This is very important to me because this senior project will determine whether or not I become a Medical Assistant because i may not enjoy it or i may really like it! None of my parents went to college so going to college and getting a good job is also extremely important to me!
Making a difference I started my health care career as a nursing assistant at the young age of 16 years-old perusing the dream of one day becoming a nurse. At that time, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into and what it meant to be in the health care. I have been able to touch and impact so many different people’s lives throughout the last 6 years from patients and residents to their family members. Sometimes not even realizing that I was changing someone’s life. Although I’ve helped hundreds of people there is one person that will I will always remember.
Some elderly has been by their sides as they fought for freedom. Some of the elderly has been victims of the Jim Crow laws while some also participated in those laws. Along with the Jim Crow Laws came about the World Wars. Most of the elderly that are living had fathers and grandfathers whom fought in the World Wars and can tell firsthand how it was like to fight during those times. This alone is why I wanted to work with the elderly; to get information before we no longer will able to get the information.
However, I was even glad that she was able to give me an insight of how my future life will be like. She was also able to make me more interested in becoming a PTA. I want to bring hope to patients, just like she does. I want patients to feel like they matter. I want to be there for patients who suffered from stroke, dementia, and those who are rehabilitating from broken bones.

Good relationships promote change, unity, and equity. My role here will be to engage clients to work as partners and enhance their interpersonal relationships in the healing process. Friendships and partnerships that begin in the rehabilitation centers always blossom even after the clients are out in the community. This helps in restoring the functionality of the individuals themselves, their families and the community as a whole. Achieving such a scenario will require my patience and dedication as I attempt to achieve positive changes in the lives of the clients.
I believe my practical experience and what I’ve learned during my six years as a dental assistant at Plainview Oral sets me apart from other students. Not only for the dental skills that I have acquired, but also for the kindness and care that I have demonstrated, when working with patients in real life situations. Many patients have thanked me for my professional bedside manner both before, during, and after surgery. I also assisted patients with disabilities, and was able to exhibit a patient and positive attitude when working with them. Hands-on skills such as taking impressions, radiographs, and making night guards will help me thrive in dental school.
