About Jessica

I became a caregiver, nearly 3 years ago when my father became incapable of taking care of himself. I was his live-in caretaker the last 2 years of his life. Our relationship changed very much over the course of 3 years. I loved being a caregiver because of the amount of trust someone has to put in you, at the most vulnerable time of their life. It becomes a beautiful mutual respect that is unlike any other sort of work. The transformation your company and trust can make for that individual, is more rewarding than any compensation. I'm 23 years old & a mother to a beautiful 3 year old girl. She is my greatest achievement. My ambitions in life is to leave as little a carbon footprint as possible & as big an impact of the spiritual/emotional well being of others as I can. I'm pescetarian (a vegetarian who eats fish) & can prepare countless meals for diabetics, including special renal diets & also gluten free meals. I enjoy politics & believe that everyone should be educated in political affairs to help get the world where we deserve to be & I believe that my start is with the elderly & upholding their basic human rights & beyond. My schedule is flexible. I am always available from 9-5 M-F but prefer to work 25 hours a week or less. Weekend care can be arranged. Also available for "on call" I am a non-smoker, I am drug-free. I have no criminal history and a spotless driving record. I also have my own transportation.

    1) I absolutely love helping others and I am earning a degree to make this my career. 2) Knowing that I am the reason they have a smile that day or knowing that I am making their life a little easier just by me being there to help with any need they will have at that moment. 3) An achievement I am proud of is building my house into a home. I never had a family to learn how to be a wife and mother so me making nothing out of something is the biggest achievement I am highly proud of. 4) Well, I am a stay at home mom right now with my first child. He is now a toddler and I'm ready to get back into a field that I love doing. I am a hard worker and I am very dedicated and motivated. I have a lot of energy (especially with at toddler) and I am ready to enter into the work field again.

    As a caregiver, I can manage all my duties and responsibilities. I can create and manage the patient's records including patient progress, treatments, and medical history. Execute house cleaning duties. Make sure that errands are run, clothes are washed and meals are cooked. Perform medical duties, like giving medication, taking blood pressure and temperature, all under the proper supervision of a qualified health care professional. Help patients correspond with friends and family by typing for them or answering phones and responding to message. Assist in bathing patients from time to time and turning them overin bed so that don't get bed soars. Advise patients family members with care instructions and guidelines for the patient. Drive the patients to different places such as the doctors office, stores, and recreational activities.
