Geriatric Case Manager
Introduction
As I embark on my education journey to hopefully a Bachelor's degree in Human Services.  The career I choose to permanently employ in is a geriatric case worker. I'd much prefer to work with a gerontology certification as my true passion lies with working with our elders. I have hands on experience in geriatric care and feel this is the perfect career for myself, and I know I will be a true asset to whomever employs me. Additionally, as a geriatric case worker continuing education potentials are widely available in most workplaces. I'd use this resource whenever possible to further educate myself and prepare for a new position with different and unique responsibilities. At forty years of age, with medical issues, I want to pursue my career and education more than ever. Helping others is within my nature. I am well prepared for the journey ahead. To add, and much to benefit from, the geriatric or aging population have so much life to them, stories to tell, seem more genuine, and many are abandoned by their own loved ones. I'd like to be the one who makes a difference in one's quality of life. When I pursue my Bachelor's Degree, I'd remain in geriatrics as a Geriatric Case Manager, in this newer named, yet in high demand, position!
