About Colleen

Hell-o, I have experience with many aspects of caregiving, with both Adults and Children. I have experience providing babysitting services at my home and theirs, including children with medical challenges. I have worked with Adults, at their home, caregiving, cooking and companionship, while I acquired my RN Nursing License, an encore career for me. I work with a variety of adults as a Nu rse. I have experience with Memory care, Parkinson's, Stroke patients as well as other medically challenged individuals. I am working with a large number of residents at an Assisted Living Facility. I provide Medication, Vitals, Insulin, Blood Sugars, and more, during the day to day care of Adults who can no longer live independently. I mainly provide Nursing Support. I am flexible and I prefer part time right now. I am proud that upon completion of Nursing School I was awarded the "Spirit of Nursing".

I always like taking care of other people. I like helping them do thing they use to do by themselves but now become difficult to do along, cleaning, groceries shopping, doctor appointments, etc. Also I like hearing the stories of their lives and giving them comfort. I take care for everything and anything they need. I have been there unconditionally with every person I had work with and they have become like family. I'm a person who is devoted to her job. I raise 2 children, a girl and a boy, and now I live along . For almost 7 years I was the main caregiver to 89 year old lady who passed away. The last four years I took care for a lady with Alzheimer's. I have been caring for older people for 17 years and still enjoying doing so. I'm bilingual English and Spanish. Reference and background check at interview.
