About Denise

Hello, My name is Denise and I was a natural born care giver. I am currently leaving for medical school in the fall and I enjoy taking care of those around me within my community. Whether young or old I have always loved lending a helping hand to those in need. I have years of volunteer community service through teaching youth groups, working with victims of human trafficking and the homeless. I found out the best way to care for people long term is to have a career in medicine. I love being apart of this small town. I enjoy just about every water recreational activity you can think of, I also love to read and when I am not home I am usually traveling abroad every other year usually on a mission trip to a different country. I am easy going and flexible, but I have a very hard work ethic and I am a motivated self starter. I look forward to helping your family and will treat them with the respect and dignity as if they were my own.

I have a strong care-giving background and have a number of professional experiences which I feel uniquely qualify me as a Caregiver / Companion. Along with my current First Aid and CPR Certifications, I have several years of experience as a caregiver. My previous work background with Hospice of Monterey, CA and Lexington Minute Women of Massachusetts has provided me broad experience in this line of work. I also have had experience in receiving hospice assistance for both of my parents. Requiring the assistance of a homecare agency has taught me, first hand what it feels like to be the client of a homecare agency. It has given me a unique perspective of the knowledge and sensitivity requirements of how to be a good caregiver and companion and to be able to enter a home and be of assistance without being overbearing or intrusive. I am skilled in the following areas: • Personal care assistance; bathing, dressing and grooming • Meal preparation and scheduling • Companionship and discussion • Medication reminders • Light housekeeping • General help to elderly and disabled • Running household tasks • Engaging clients in activates such as games, memory books, and light exercise I enjoy working with the clients of all ages / socio-economic backgrounds and have a demonstrated ability to develop great relationship with them and their families. Moreover, I am trustworthy and responsible person who take great pleasure in caregiving tasks.
