Libra I really enjoy helping people. I especially, enjoy helping eldery people. I have worked in nursing for 20 years. I love people and love to help other's. I am very reliable, dependable, trustworthy, lovable and compassionate . I have so much training . Here's just a few of my training and skills; Alzheimer/dementia, transfers, medication reminder, feeding, run errands, dressing, baths, light housekeeping etc. I've always enjoyed caregiving - for my younger siblings, my own children, and working with the disabled. I began caring for seniors with my elderly mother-in-law and it was deeply satisfying.
I am a certified Home Health Aide working through an agency and am now an independent caregiver experienced in all ADLs, medications, transfer needs and dementia. I enjoy the broad range of activities - meal prep, transportation, personal care, medical needs, and one-on-one care allows for a greater level of care, understanding and empathy.
Dependable and caring with excellent client references e.g. \"head and shoulder above other caregivers\", \"a godsend\" as well as recent drug test, background check.
I am the proud daughter of a WWII Navy Veteran who was an amazing father, husband, uncle, and friend to many.
He taught me to have respect for my elders and to give back in any way possible to a generation who gave so much of themselves for us all.
I spent several years helping to care for my mother who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. I later became a daily companion for 2 years to my mother-in-law, who suffered from cancer and dementia. I was present when both passed away. For the past 12 years, I have provided companionship and care to many elderly folks, right in their (or a loved one's) home.
Getting to know my new friends is a priority, and engaging in meaningful conversation which stimulates the mind is an essential part of what I do. I am careful to acknowledge a person's capabilities and strengths as well as their weaknesses. As needed, I will assist with: reading, writing, eating, ADL's (activities of daily living) including walking, mobility devices, medication reminders, personal grooming and dressing. I can also do light house work, prepare meals, drive to appointments, and run errands. I am able to assist and guide, but not lift or transfer. I am trustworthy and very loyal. I hope to meet you and your loved one soon!
