Meet The APC-PCH Owner
Hello my name is Jeannine Nash, I began my career in elder care in dedication to my late grandmother Allie Mae Lewis. When my grandmother was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease and discharged from the hospital to home I had the great pleasure of taking care of her. I of course had no idea what I was doing and our family was not given the resources to teach me or where to call for assistance. I was self trained through trial and error. Not knowing the proper techniques for providing active daily living skills caused for some precious times to become tough times for us both.
When my grandmother passed away I made a promise to learn all I can to assist other grandmothers. I wanted to ensure other families did not have to go through the trial and errors we had to. I set out to obtain the trainings and resources to become a well trained and educated senior advocate.
Elder Care Experience
I began my career as a Certified Nurse Aide working within skilled nursing facilities providing hands on health care for patient who were injured, frail, and unable to care for themselves. I also worked as an in home care provider assisting client with active daily living skills. I had the great pleasure of working within a senior meal distributing company which allowed me the ability to begin providing clients with the resources that would assist with their well being. A great turn to my career was working within a senior living community and ensuring each resident felt like they have just arrived at home and ensuring families their loved ones will make close friends, enjoy restaurant styles meals, and joyful activities. The Home Health and Hospice industry allowed me the ability to work directly with physicians and their assistance to ensure each patient received compassionate, professionally, skilled care.
Being of service with in the community is very important to me and my way of giving back what has been so freely given to me. I have had the opportunity of participating in fun runs although I must say there are a few walks I participate in annually: The Walk to defeat ALS, walking for a cure to Lou Gerig's Disease, the walk to End Alzheimer's, and Headstrong San Diego Brain Injury walk.
I have also been honored to hold some very special seats within our San Diego County. President of The San Diego County Council on Aging, Chair of City of Chula Vista Commission on Aging, Economically Disadvantaged Representative for County of San Diego Community Action Board.
