More Caregivers You Might Like
I have been a Registered Nurse since the age of 21 years old and have 35 years of Home Health nursing experience . I have experience in trachs, ventilators, gastrostomy tubes, cancer patient, quadriplegics and overall basic care. Im CPR certified and vaccinated for covid-19. I will take highest level of precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. I have been with one patient for 31 years and still caring for him. I'm caring, patient, compassionate and sensitive to my patients needs. I've also worked as a hospice volunteer for Sutter Hospital. I have also volunteered at The Marine Mammal Center for 18 years in the Intensive Care Unit for harbor seals. I'm dependable and able to provide transportation to doctors appointments and run errands.
I am a very nurturing and kind person. I am very sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of those around me, very empathetic, gentle, good sense of humor. Treating people with respect is very important to me and I know it is to you as well. Most recently, for over a year, I worked with 2 female clients. One client is 98 with visual and hearing impairments, diabetes and mild dimentia. I was responsible for taking daily glucose readings, keeping records of her medical data/appointments/medication dispensing. I cooked her a hearty breakfast and we ate together. I introduced her to a game called "WordCross" and she loved to play every day with me. It was great for her mind and was a good social experience as well. Another client had early stage Alzheimers, but was highly functional. I provided companionship, meal preparation for her and her husband, fixed her hair, walked outside with her, did their grocery shopping, and occasionally we enjoyed shopping/lunch trips together. I have additional experience working with clients that have terminal cancer. I not only met their specific physical needs, but created an environment for them which brought them comfort and peace during the most difficult time of their lives. What made me most aware of the needs of seniors was when my own grandmother was near the end of her life. I helped her daily with dressing, grooming, feeding, and eventually accompanied her through her last days in hospice. I understand how important it is for families to feel confident that their loved one is being treated with gentleness and respect. I want to help seniors to have the best quality of life possible. I look forward to visiting with you to see how I could help meet the needs of your loved one, Amy
