About Doris

I enjoy working with the elderly and I have over 30 years of experience. Becoming a caregiver sprouted from cleaning houses and running errands for local elders in midtown St. Petersburg Fl. My passion enlivened as I recall witnessing the impeccable care for my mother during her transition from a hospice nurse at the young age of 13. I knew then that I too had the desire to aid those in need and to be the hands when they can’t use their own. As word spread of my quality care, I found myself with multiple clients and a desire to do more in my community. I became certified as a CNA/HHA September 1, 1989 and I am in good standings with the State of Florida Department of Health and Human Services. All CEU's, License and Certificates are up to date.

    Caring for others is a calling and a passion that comes from my heart. I have over 14 years of experience in specialized care for seniors, including varying levels of dementia. I constantly strive to find the fine balance in caregiving between respecting others' personal space (as well as their homes, routines, rhythms, needs, and their independence) while providing them the care they need. Alzheimer's and dementia clients thrive from one-on-one attention and activities catered to them. Their moods may fluctuate from being kind, helpful, and active, to erratic, confused, and mistrustful, to napping or even playing 'possum'. I am very patient, compassionate, empathetic, and have good creative problem-solving skills to help deal with more complicated personalities and situations. I gained a lot of experience with my father who has Alzheimer's for the past 22 years. My last job included transitioning an active but failing client from her home of 45 years to assisted living near her daughter, 200 miles away. For over three years, I cared for a neighbor doing home dialysis. Five years working in nursing homes were eye-opening. I gained valuable experience but never had enough time to give the residents the attention they needed and deserved. Nursing home systems don't have enough time for personal attention - for most of them it's quantity over quality. I have an international up-bringing which helps me fit in almost anywhere. I speak English and picked up some Argentine Spanish along the way. I have wonderful references, a strong work ethic, and am a patient nurturer. I enjoy being organized, am reliable, find things to do to stay busy, and take pride in a job well done. Personal home care is priceless and ensures specialized care for our loved ones, in the manner they deserve. I will work with you with price and situation. I hope you consider me to help you care for your loved one your way.
