About Catherine " Wendy"

I became a caregiver for my mother for almost 3 years ,prior to her death. She was bedridden for the last year. I dealt with all her needs & the Hospice people that attended her. Since then I have cared for 2 different elderly women. One recovering from hip replacement ,that initially needed 24/7 care & companion to the other that was almost blind. I am very good at making them laugh & focus on the humorous side of aging. Something I think is missing from most elderly people's lives. I enjoy listening to their stories- their experiences. I consider myself easy to be with & adjustable to many situations.

    I started with 12 hour shifts for a women with a hip replacement. I ,eventually saw 2 ladies several hours a day, 5 days a week. The one needed to be taken to lunch every day as her eyesight was very poor & she could not drive. The other in a senior apartment facility, enjoyed the companionship. We went for walks & I read to her ,which she loved , as she could no longer read.

    I am personable and enjoy being a home care provider. I became a caregiver because I wanted to help others by assisting them with their activities of daily living. I enjoyed caring for many seniors over the years and learned quite a lot from them. I believe I'm a great caregiver because I have had extensive training in a skilled nursing facility as well as in many private homes. I also enjoy seeing the difference that I often make in people's lives. I became a nursing assistant back in 1982 and acquired my Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) license at the convalescent hospital where I worked. I then went on to work for several home care agencies and acquired my Certified Home HeaIth Aide (CHHA) license. I have worked as an independent contractor caregiver for years. I am willing to commute for full-time employment. I have great references and will be happy to submit them upon request.
