About Cheryl

I've always enjoyed caregiving - for my younger siblings, my own children, and working with the disabled. I began caring for seniors with my elderly mother-in-law and it was deeply satisfying. I am a certified Home Health Aide, an independent caregiver experienced in all ADLs, medications, transfer needs and dementia. I enjoy the broad range of activities - meal prep, transportation, personal care, medical needs, and one-on-one care allows for a greater level of care, understanding and empathy. Dependable and caring with excellent client references "head and shoulder above other caregivers", "a godsend". Have recent drug test, background check.

Experience & Education

Home Health Aide

May 2016 - Apr 2017
Home Helpers of Tampa
Worked with a diverse group of clients needing personal hands on care, safety supervision with ADLs, errands, dementia cueing and companionship. I love getting to know my clients and their family, hearing their stories, and caring for their dear ones. I enjoy the rapport, especially making them smile and laugh. Although most clients have been seniors, I have experience caring for accident victims recovering their former skills, post-surgery care, and hospice palliative care.
