About Rodney

I choose to become a caregiver because I care about people, especially those that cannot care for themselves and like the idea of assisting person to become more self sufficient and increasing their dignity and well being. My most proud achievement is being a single dad and raising my daughter now for 12 years running. I am into personal nutrition and training and also play piano, sax and sing.

    I have worked in the school district as substitute teacher for four years. Before that I worked as a private Nanny who also did home care work with other family members in the households. I have worked a lot with children with disabilities as a home care giver and as a para professional in the school district. I ran errands, planned schedules, answered phones, took kids to and from activities, and provided meals, helped with toilet training, and bath time. I have also worked with older family members which has always been enjoyable for me. I would drive them to and from where they needed to go, help with groceries, give them medication, laundry, assisted with feedings and other needed things around the house.
