Helping wonderful people continue to fill out their daily needs is a great blessing to be a part of. Either the individual needs a lot of care or just minor help with activities around the house. There is no limit to the extent of care I give!
I have 2 years exspirence, ranging from minor help, medical treatments, to hospice, with 4 different clients I rotated care for.
I am a very hard working person and with that a very nurturing one that cares highly about others well being. I am a proud mother of three children and looking forward to continue what I do best and that is being needed for your loved ones as well, it gives me a great since of pride similar to taking care of my own family. I'm a very honest person about everything, very compassionate, sympathetic to everyone. When ever, where ever I'm needed and then some. I'm responsive and devoted! I can only prove these qualities in person and I hope to meet a good family like my last one real soon, my last client is healed and healthy again and I'm no longer needed sadly beside over for lunch now and then :)
The special person in your life will feel loved, valued and appreciated!

Cooking and meals; diet goes hand in hand with exercise! Special diet or meal preparation is not a problem!

I'm highly reliable and will be there every time I am needed, no excuses! I am an artists with a lot of passions in life. I enjoy hiking, ballroom and salsa dancing, skiing, fishing, gardening, nature, games, music, photography, plays and musicals. I am getting close to my BA in fine arts. I really enjoyed Cultural Anthropology, Philosophy, Ethics, Biology, in fact I love College. I love all animals!
After breast cancer and other life hardships, I have realized the important things in life are about people, relationships and love. I understand how it feels to feel helpless and to need help, how it feels to live in fear, depression, and letting go. My own personal experience gives me a unique perspective for understanding those who are experiencing loss in one form or another. It has increased my level of compassion and empathy. Because of this I have done well as a caregiver. With each new person I look for what helps make them feel safe and secure along with what they look forward each day. Also I pay attention to when to be quiet, when to give them their quiet time, when to listen. I love to bring smiles and laughter and I love to love.
I do not do a sloppy job in cleaning and don't mind yard work or poop scooping. I have knowledge of healthy cooking and can follow any recipe.
I am very good with medication reminders and have worked with various health conditions. I have experience with transfers, dressing, bathing, help with physical therapy exercise.
I can work part time to full time and over nigh
