About Heather

I love helping others and it's always been in in blood. I started working on the Telemetry floor at a hospital while in college and feel in love with the medical field and people. Caring for others is definitely my calling. Shortly after that I took great care of my grandmother who had dementia and knew me half the time. I'm glad I got to have that time with her. I have had my own health trials and have had to overcome more in my life that I ever thought possible. When I got to the point of good health again the first thing I wanted to do was help others and that's what keeps me going. I am warm, compassionate, funny and all around just a nice person. I feel weird explaining myself like that but I am going on what others have said as well. Thank you for taking time to read this.

Caregiver

Oct 2020 - Apr 2021
Family Care
I aided in helping a wheelchair bound lady around who was paralyzed on her left side. I helped with cleaning, pet care, laundry, cooking, helping her move by putting her belongings in boxes, ran errands, dispersed medications and also helped with bathroom rituals, exercises and getting to bed and up in the mornings. She really recently moved to another state to be near her family.

I'm a bit more of a quiet person. I'm a good listener. I am very punctual and hardworking at my jobs. My mother is a Type I diabetic and I have spent several months taking care of her. And I have helped out my father when he has had two bouts of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I have a certain amount of understanding when it comes to taking care of people that need a little bit of help with getting around day-to-day. I have been doing this type of work for over a year now. I help people with getting dressed, bathing, toileting, and getting ready for bed. I have also done light housework/cleaning, laundry, preparing meals, etc. Being a caregiver is very rewarding when the people that I work with feel appreciated, listened to and taken care of.

What makes me a great care giver is first of all, my heart. I do this because I love to and when you do what you love it is not work. I am caring empathetic and compassionate. With over 36 years of senior care, I have extensive experience in ALL aspects of caring for the elderly and providing the very best in quality of life care. To name a few; Alzheimer/Dementia Care and communication strategies(redirection, therapeutic fibbing, or "going along" as long as it doesn't put the client at risk). Anxiety reduction, social interaction and companionship. Bathing and personal hygiene, great cook and homemaker. Observant and aware of changes in clients well-being. educated in home safety and recognizing possible barriers to client safety and ways to improve or remove those barriers. Excellent communicator and team player. There are many things I have done over the years as a caregiver that I am proud of. One in general, as to all my client,s has been to provide the very best in care and compassion and afford them the quality of life, respect and dignity we all deserve. As a care manager for my previous client, I was able to ensure that she was truly loved and happy. I ensured all her wishes were met and she knew she was cared for as well as her home and her cat. Her knowing was important to me.
