I enjoy listening to people and caring for them. I want them to be comfortable and as happy as they can be for the situation. I want to give them the attention, care and dignity they deserve. Spending time listening and sharing conversations - while also doing my job of making sure they are eating, drinking, exercising. Etc. I never thought about being a caregiver - it just happened and I am glad it did because I enjoy it. I work to increase their state of mind (happy, smile and laugh)- I know this time of their life is tough and I want to help them find some enjoyment and comfort to embrace each day. ... more

Vinod was recovering from back surgery. The week I was with Vinod we walked and exercised - watching so he wouldn't fall. I also did laundry. The whole family is wonderful.

George's son Kurt has special needs and needed help with grocery shopping, meal prep, eating and companionship. I helped with daily needs throughout the house - laundry, dusting and vacuuming. Kurt was a very nice man that was so accomplished - even with his special needs he was very well educated. Kurt had a Master's degree in Education.

Larry was well taken care of at the hospital - I brought Larry his paper everyday while he was in the hospital. Larry needed oxygen at al l times. ... more

Caring for my own family

Private Family

Apr 2011 - Mar 2019

I began caring for my mother-in-law part time (which included walking Yogi her golden retriever). Mom had cancer and respiratory issues - COPD. With mom's health declining - my love grew stronger working to make everything easier for her - she was my friend whom I loved very much. With time passing mom had to use oxygen full time and I would get her around in the wheelchair. Right after mom passed away - I began caring for my dad who had a heart attack. What was interesting with caring for my dad - I instantly had 2 patients because my mom had dementia. I scheduled and took them to all the various doctor appointments, chemotherapy etc. my mom had a stroke so I also took care of her at home and she was blind from the stroke. In caring for my family in their home - I took care of the inside and outside of the house. Also, laundry, cooking and their personal care. I enjoyed caring for my family and making sure they received my care with dignity and respect. ... more
