I have over 3 years experience of senior care and over one year of experience with dementia care. I love to nurture and it is particularly rewarding when I get the opportunity to help those who have lived so much of their life and have given so much of themselves in that time. I love the close bonds and compassion that forms from caregiving, it doesn't feel like I am working, but instead just spending time with a family member. In my last job, I loved all the conversations we would have, she was a truly lovely, funny and wise person. I am CPR and First AID certified through the American Red Cross. I also am experienced with meal prep, medication prompting, housekeeping and pet care. In addition to being a caregiver, I am a freelance illustrator and painter and enjoyed doing art/craft projects with the women I have looked after.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
