About Laurie

I believe in any job you pursue care giving included, you have to love it enough to do it for free if you could afford to do so. I believe what makes me a great caregiver is I'm patient, I'm a great motivator to do things they may not do for others they will do for me. I'm loving & kind, I take great pride in my position as a caregiver. People with any kind of disability I feel blessed that they have chosen me to walk this journey with them. It is not always easy yet together we will persevere. I am very proud of my work as a caregiver all the people I have worked for & with I stay in contact with their family's. I have taken several classes on Alzheimer's & Dementia I do lots of research on any new clients disability to learn all about it so I can help them & possibly learn new ways to help. I am reliable & trustworthy I live in Cottonwood Ca, However I am willing to travel for overnight shifts.

Experience & Education

PCA Caregiver

Dec 2016 - Present
Professional Case Mangement
Care for a 74 yr old Parkinson gentlemen. I prepare 2-3 meals a day, I help with dressing, showering, shaving, & some toileting. I encourage him to exercise we walk laps in his home, he has a recumbent bicycle which he can ride for 15 min. I am his advocate. I sometimes travel with him to his Dr.'s appointments. He also has some dementia so we play games to help with his memory. I try to keep him motivated letting him know to take each day as it comes & together we will make the most of it!

Loyal, Trustworthy, compassionate, hardworking and willing to go the extra mile for my patients. I have been a Caregiver for over 10 years. With one purpose, to engage each and everyone of my clients in a healthy injury free way of living. I enjoy the opportunity to impact clients lives and make a difference to them. I appreciate the chance to get to know clients and their families and become an integral part of their lives. I love to take care of my clients wholeheartedly. I became a caregiver to be able to help with my compassionate heart to our elderly. I always give 100% and do the best job I can, with no exceptions or excuses. I also try to bring a sense of humor to my work. If I can add a smile or laugh to a clients day, that means a lot to me. It is important to laugh. As to my availability, I can help on 5/18-5/21 and 6/1-6/4. Tuesday morning 8.00AM through to Saturday morning at 8am. In general, live-in from Tuesday to Friday EVERY OTHER WEEK.
