I became a care giver because I like giving back to others. Being a care giver provides the opportunity to offer personalized care to each individual. A caregiver is able to educate and help people achieve physical and mental stability or wellness. I value being able to share in my client's accomplishments, no matter how small they might seem to others.
I am a RN who has been caring for my father since diagnosed with kidney cancer after battling bladder cancer two years ago. Through this caretaker position I have gained experience working with physicians/nurses/healthcare workers, learning how to organize/prioritize tasks surrounding his care and therapeutically communicating with him and the family. My decision to enter the health care as a nurse came from caring for my mother who has battled cancer for the past 13 years, first breast cancer and then bone cancer. Being involved with her post-op mastectomy care, taking her to chemotherapy and radiation treatments and the aftercare of such treatments has given me an insight into oncology, medical-surgical, senior health, nutrition, and health teaching. I have recently completed a job on the Acute Rehab unit at CPMC Davies Hospital, caring for patients that suffer complex catastrophic injuries/illnesses, i.e. stroke, spinal cord/brain injuries, amputation, hip fracture, neurological disorders, Alzheimer’s, osteoarthritis. I have gained expertise in transfer techniques and bowel treatment programs as well as physical/occupational therapy and daily caretaking responsibilities including bathing, fall prevention, cleaning, meals, etc. I enjoy working as a nurse and caretaker because I love to help individuals progress whether that be through motivation or assistance in maintaining their dignity and ability to continue their activities of daily living (ADLs) as much as possible.
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.

I am a baccalaureate prepared RN with 7 years of experience with a passion for preventive care. My dream is to ride my bicycle around my neighborhood and visit seniors in their homes to provide excellent, compassionate nursing care, to help keep people out of the hospital, to allow for "aging in place." I believe in the Law of Attraction and the power of positivity. I have a great sense of humor. I am an accomplished violinist. My favorite quote and personal mantra comes from Louise Hay: "I am a joyful breeze entering a room."
