About Lyndia

I'm a great caregiver because I really care about the elderly. I am emphatic and compassionate. I took care of my mom who suffered with Alzheimer's and I try to imagine I'm giving the client the same care as if she was my very own mother. I am an ordained minister who is expected to walk in love. I get pleasure out of knowing that the client has been given the best care possible and if I was put under a microscope there wouldn't be anything to complain about. I try to follow the golden rule 'do unto others as you would have then do unto you.' I answer to a higher calling and I know I will be held responsible if I don't give the client the best care. To hear the doctor tell the relative that the client is very well taken care of is to me a personal achievement.

Patrol site. Keep logbook. Outside post. Report any situations that may effect the safety of site or employees. Being an outdoor post working in the sleet, snow and freezing rain, I came down with a really bad cold and couldn't return in a timely matter so I had to resign.

Lucille Burney
Lucille Burney was my mother. She passed in 2001 for Alzheimer's. My sister and I cared for her in the home. My duties were to basically feed her, watch out for her for she had a nurse come in daily. I would sit with her, help her use the bathroom. Take her to appointments. Read to her. Put her to bed at night. During my shift I would be alert because we didn't want her confined so we had to be alert to her activities so she wouldn't hurt herself.
