I retired from state employment as a secretary nine years ago, and soon started a new career that would give me an opportunity to be of service to others. Caregiving has been the perfect second career for me. I started my first care giving job as a volunteer with the Sacramento Senior Companion Program. I provided care and companionship for elderly women for one year. I also worked with clients through the Seniors Helping Seniors Program, but for the past seven years, I've primarily worked part and full time for clients through the County of Sacramento's In-Home Support Services Program (IHSS). (I've also had private hires through care.com and carelinx). My duties have included basic housekeeping, and providing transportation to doctor's appointments, grocery stores, etc.; and other personal services as needed. As an added bonus, I can offer advocacy services for clients with financial, medical, or home service issues; research prescription information; provide home safety advice; and offer companionship. I'm always eager to learn new things, and welcome any questions you may have about my experience and qualifications. It's my preference to work part time during weekdays. but I always try to be flexible. My car is almost new, and my DMV record is clean. I prefer that job sites be located less than 15 miles from my home in Antelope, if possible. Thank you for taking the time to review my profile, and I hope we might have an opportunity to work together in the future!
