Certified Aide & Receptionist
"Hi! My name is Judy Ray. I have worked for Pike County Health Department, Home Health & Hospice since May 2016 as a Certified Aide, and I love it! As a Home Health Aide, I assist our patients with personal hygiene needs from bed baths, showers, to standing near by in case of a need. I also assist with shaving, washing/rolling hair, and dressing. The amount of assistance is determined by the needs of the patient and I also try to spend time just visiting with the patient, as some have limited visitors. The part of my job that I love the most is working with our hospice patients and their families. I often form a bond with them and truly consider it an honor and privilege to be asked to care for their loved one and to be a part of their lives. I have met some wonderful and memorable people. Working here is actually a retirement job for me, as I am a retired public school teacher. I ended my career in education at Louisiana R-11 School District as a Speech Language Pathologist. I attended Fontbonne University in Claton, Missouri and Ritenour High School in Overland, Missouri. I enjoy working with people and both of these positions have allowed that. Bowling Green has been my home for 28 years. I moved here from Hannibal with my son, Scott. I am a member of the Pike County Fair Board and Good Shepard Lutheran Church. I am a past member of the Louisiana Elementary Bullpup Boosters, the Bowling Green Jaycees and the Region III Council for Developmental Disabilities."
