Private Home Health Resume

  1. Okay I will start back to work again sson (I am still a CNA). I have done some private home health in the past but never included it in my resume or on a job app. So now I want to but don't know how to go about it. I was hired by my patients daughter just to sit, and do ADL's. My patient died, and her daughter moved out of state. I have been trying to track her down for a reference, but no luck. So how would I put something like this on my resume, and on a job application?

    If it was a private pay situation and you cannot validate with someone it occurred more than likely you can list it but an agency may look for something before that time to validate your work. You still will have to sit through some ed classes and skills demo anyways.

    Good luck to you,

    I agree with renierian ..you can add it to the resume, because it will show you are familiar with personal care, but you should have other experience that can be validated. Unfortunately, there are those who get very "creative" while writing resumes, and they make it harder for those who are honest.

    A Non medicail agency might take you .We personaly ask for that kind of info Do you happen to know a neighbor of the Pt's that knew you did care for the Pt . could you take a skills test and pass at the agency. Then from now on always get a referance. I always ask the family, when I know there close to dying If I can have referance for my next job.They have always been very understanding and wrote glowing reports .
