If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be as a nurse. I am currently in school getting ready to enter the Nursing Program to become a Registered Nurse. I would like to work with Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients. This can be a very scary time for someone who is going through these terrible diseases and I would like the opportunity to be there for them when they are confused and feel helpless. My grandmother and great grandmother both had Alzheimer’s disease and I saw how it not only affected them, but also their family. Bringing security to these patients and their families on a daily basis and helping them get through the last years of their lives as comfortable as possible would be so rewarding. I would hope that by being a caring and understanding nurse for Alzheimer’s patients, I would change how people deal and treat people with this disease. I would like to help the world understand better what is going on inside these patients’ heads and why it is happening. I plan on being a huge advocate for prevention, symptoms to look for, treatment, care, and support of Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients. Hopefully a cure will be found soon, but until then, I will do all I can to help patients with this disease.
