itsmejuli specializes in Home Care.

I started nursing at 45, spent many years living in Florida, moved back to Canada in 2011. I've worked in LTC and med rehab. Now I'm in home care, I supervise HCAs performing home care in a lodge setting. I think I've finally found my calling in nursing.

  12. Last fall I stubbed my baby toe. The pain was terrible. I managed to fracture one of the small bones behind the toe. It took 2 months to heal. All I could do was wear super sturdy shoes. I did get a cortisone shot and that helped for a few weeks. Bu...
