I was born and raised here in the Bay Area and am a retired registered nurse. After practicing in many different areas (medical/surgical, adult advice, school, long term care, dementia) I have found a passion for elder and end of life care but am happy to help anyone.
My goals as a caregiver are to provide a safe, nurturing, supportive and respectful environment for my clients. Patience and a sense of humor are important as life for the elderly is pretty tough. Many are in chronic pain with multiple health issues that also include anxiety and depression .
Rates for level of care that include companion, excercise, light housekeeping, errands, meal prep and patient advocacy with MD.
1: My base rate is $27/hr with a 3hr minimum. Light assistance with activities of daily living. (Showering, toileting, dressing and ambulation)
2: Higher level of care is $33/hr with a 3 hr. minimum. Includes incontinent care, lifting and transfers, equipment monitoring and maintenance as well as end of life.
*Above rates are discounted for cash payments.
I have reliable transportation and charge .5/mile when using my car for errands and appointments etc.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for any questions.
Thank you for your consideration.
