Hi, thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me.
Giving care to someone is more like being their greatest advocate, they let me know what they want, need, and can do in their lives and I do my best to achieve this with them. I am very adaptable to follow protocol, or be spontaneous within the allowed guidelines. Safety, respect, listening, assisting are all just basic musts and needs.
I am pretty strong, love exploring or relaxing at home. I enjoy making those in my circle feel cared for and unconditionally accepted, it gives me a peace.
While medical assisting for six years, I noticed a decline in the kind of care for the vulnerable and assisted patients - It weighed so heavy on me that I decided to change careers. I found a new passion for learning about all the diagnosis' I saw in the clinic and how people adapted to living with them daily. I took every hard case on... loving the challenges. I took as many syndromes and specialty needs as I could and that helped me learn how to approach each person as an individual no matter what their challenges were.
All that said, I have many moments that I can say are my favorites, but it comes down to being blessed by those I work for.
I stated earlier I am adaptable, and that means I bring a nice and varied background, but I am more interested in learning about the next person who selects me and how to weave my experiences to make their life better, maybe even fuller.. any way I can.
My name is Betty and I am a Certified Nursing Assistant with over eight years of experience as a caregiver, dementia specialist, activities coordinator/driver and hospice care provider. My specialty is private, in-home care, and I have specific training in caring for those with dementia/ Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases. I can assist with all activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, feeding, activities and light housekeeping, and I am an excellent, health-minded cook and home manager as well. I am also certified with nurse delegations which enables me to administer medications and other nurse-designated tasks if needed. I would love to show you my portfolio with my resume, background check and drug clearences, education certificates and copies of required licenses. I have many excellent references that you can confirm.
I am interested in a part-time position (up to 25 hours a week), and I am able to do overnight shifts (up to three 24/7 hours on-site). I am flexible with the times and hours. I have reliable transportation and am willing to travel to Portland or North Clark County.
I have an excellent driving record, and with proper insurance can drive my client's car to various destinations such as doctors and appointments, shopping, sight seeing, visiting, activities, etc.
Please get back to me if you are interested so we can discuss your specific needs, and I will arrange a time to meet with you at your convenience.
Thank you, Betty.
