I am a mom, grandmother, home care nurse. Before home care nursing, I worked in a large county hospital, on an ambulatory dialysis unit. I couldn't give my undivided attention to 10 to 20 patients during a shift, though I did try, so I went into home care, where I take care of one patient for years at a time, or sometimes just a few months.
