Experienced with Alzheimers, disease, dementia, Parkinson's, feeding, personal grooming, and more. I'm also experienced with all aspects of household management-- meal prep (a good cook!), conversation, light housekeeping, laundry, organizing, errands, transportation, scheduling, and general assisting. I provide excellent care with an emphasis on patience, empathy, and dignity.

I'm currently providing full time care and emotional support for a beautiful 83 year old woman who is legally blind, hard of hearing and frail, with severe late stage Alzheimers. I can best describe it as caring for a baby although she has moments of clarity, quick wit, and a limited capacity for conversation. She has stolen my heart! I am responsible for her medication management, taking and recording blood pressure, administering eye drops, pain management, mobility assistance, transportation, housekeeping, laundry, cooking, feeding assistance, dressing, grooming, bathing, toileting, entertaining, incontinence, exercise, tending to numerous requests for hand washing, sweets, coffee, mail checking, door lock checking, etc, 24/7 by her side supervision, soothing her throughout the night, and communicating with family members.
