  4. 4. LETTER EXPERIENCE IN LONG TERM CARE FIELD INCLUDING SKILLS AND CAPABILITIES AS A CAREGIVER AND MEDAIDE My name is Marion Pound. I am a 17 year veteran caregiver and patient advocate. I have worked both in home and in facilities including Alzheimer's Specialty Facilities as medication aide / caregiver. My objective is to find a position where I can work with the elderly, chronically ill, mentally ill and physically handicapped; to advance my knowledge and skills; to have an opportunity to advance and work with others and grow with an innovative organization. I started caregiving at the age of 21 caring for my best friend's mother, Irene Virginia Pullen, after she broke her hip. I worked with her through 3 months of in-home rehab. I took care of cooking her meals, cleaning her house, and meeting her basic adls. She slowly went down hill from there. This was in 1998. A few years later she had a stroke that put her in a coma for 21 days in the hospital. I stayed with her day and night. She came home unable to walk or take care of herself. She was dependent on her son, Philip Anderton, and myself for all adls. It took us about 6 months of working with her and night to get her to be able to feed herself and help assist with standing and feeding. During this time of care I also assisted with scheduling doctor appointments, monitoring her pacemaker (3rd degree atrioventricular block) via satellite (from home over telephone), assisting her to and from doctor appointments, going shopping for her (both personal and food). As time went on I cared for more and more of her adls including feeding, dressing, toileting, bathing (both in shower and in bed). I even assisted her with bowel and bladder care (both catheter care and constipation matters as they arose). After her stroke she had secondary parkinsonism and Alzheimer's disease. Several years after having the stroke she passed away at home on hospice. Both me and her son saw to her every need. She passed away Oct. 1st , 2008.
  5. 5. After she passed away I went to work at long term facilities. During that time I was a medication aide for a total of about 4 years. I have been a caregiver for a total of about 5 years. As a medication aide I prepared and administered medications in compliance with the related policies and procedures at the long term care facilities. I counted and calculated doses on a limited basis and documented the number of scheduled drugs at the beginning and end of each shift. I reviewed resident's medical records and medication administration records (MAR). I also provided resident care within the scope of the medication aide role and continue direct care activities and other relevant caregiving duties as assigned e.g., performance, improvement, activities. During the past seven years I have been a caregiver at long term care facilities for almost 5 years and during that time I did the following: ambitiously provided friendly and superb service to the residents of the home with compassion and zeal while maintaining an attitude of professionalism, maturity and team orientation. I had an awareness for all re
