I am a very nurturing and kind person. I am very sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of those around me, very empathetic, gentle, good sense of humor. Treating people with respect is very important to me and I know it is to you as well. Currently I have been serving 2 female clients for one year. My morning client is 97 with visual and hearing impairments, diabetes and mild dimentia. I am responsible for taking daily glucose readings, keeping records of her medical data/appointments/medication dispensing. I cook her a hearty breakfast and we eat together. I introduced her to a game called "WordCross" and she loves to play every day with me. It is great for her mind and is a good social experience as well. My afternoon client has early stage Alzheimers, but is highly functional. I provide companionship, meal preparation for her and her husband, fix her hair, walk outside with her, do their grocery shopping, and occasionally we enjoy shopping/lunch trips together. At this point (starting May 6, 2019)she will need to transition to fulltime care. *** I'm looking for a new afternoon client and hope to set up an interview soon. I have more experience that we can discuss in person and/or on the phone. What made me most aware of the needs of seniors was when my own grandmother was near the end of her life and I helped her daily with dressing, grooming, feeding at one point, and eventually accompanied her through her last days in hospice. I understand how important it is for families to feel confident that their loved one is being treated with gentleness and respect. I want to help seniors to have the best quality of life possible.
