Hello, my name is Carrie Wallace. I became a caregiver because I am passionate about taking care of people. I strongly believe everyone deserves trustworthy, dependable, and compassionate care and be treated as if they were a member of my own family. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is getting to know people from all ages, stages and walks of life. As a CNA, I continue to take the necessary college courses to work towards becoming a Registered Nurse.
I consider caregiving to be an enriching profession where I am compassionate, patient, considerate, nurturing, responsible, reliable, honest and family oriented.
I offer experience with medical management, mobility assistance, bathing, dressing, transferring, eating, walking, grooming, toileting, personal care, light housework, laundry, meal preparation, shopping, errands, and companionship.
My proudest personal achievement has been raising of my two, now grown, sons, who have both become very good young men. I'm very compassionate, caring, loyal, trustworthy, patient, dependable, responsible and reliable. I'm very compassionate about my work and i really enjoy caring for others. I've always given my "all" in every client that i have worked with. I have a gift of patience, caring and understanding. I've always had a nurturing spirit and it is a rewarding experience to help others. I've been working as a Private Duty caregiver for approximately 40 years with Hospice , Alzheimer, Dementia &, Parkinson and elderly clients. My personal achievement is to be the very best at every opportunity God has blessed me with; and make my client feel as safe and secure while in my care. I've worked with terminally ill clients from the beginning until the end(administered medications, contacted hospice & family, etc). I would take care of feeding tubes(flushing, hook& unhook(Kangaroo pump). I've worked with clients as a Personal Care Asst, Direct Support Asst and an advanced personal aide with wound care, catheter care, bladder/bowel care, bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation, laundry, companionship, shopping, errands, etc. I took care of my husband that passed away suddenly 7 years ago, my ill mother-in-law and terminally ill father. I'm available evenings, overnights(preferably) and weekends. I have a full-time job, but am available as soon as possible.
