About Nita

It's hard to tell about yourself, because others see things that you, yourself don't see. I love helping people and when I worked at Northeast Ga, I would sit with patients on weekends that needed someone to stay with them. As people get older they don't like to admit that they need help. We feel like if we admit that we need help we are giving up our independence. The family is usually the first to say "Mom/Dad" needs help, which is usually true, but they just don't want to admit that they really could use some help. Maybe not all the time, but a few day a week. When I meet with the family about staying with their family member, the first thing I assure them is that I am not there to take away their independence, I am there to help them keep it. I love meeting new people and I have learned that as our lives get more busy, it's nice to have someone to take you to the grocery store or a Dr's. appointment or just to keep you company for awhile and help with some things that you just can't quiet do anymore alone. When your children or family just don't have the time to be there at the times that you need them. I help with things that the patient needs, if it's fixing them something to eat, do some household chores, assisting with bathing, getting dressed, giving meds. Whatever it takes to make the patient feel comfortable when the family is not there.

Caregiver

Mar 2016 - Present
Morgan Concrete Co
I worked with the owner of Morgan Concrete from March 2016 until October 2017. Mr. Morgan passed away 10/29/17. He had Alzheimer's and I assisted him starting out Mon, Wed and Fri. I took him to lunch, helped him with dressing himself. Gave his meds. Fixed snacks and small meals. Helped with toileting and hygiene. Helped Mrs. Morgan with some household things when Mr. Morgan was sleeping. I helped with the laundry and light housework (not required) just to help her out. When the disease progressed, I went to 7 days a week. I fixed meals daily for Mr. Morgan, helped bathe him, changed linens on bed, still gave meds. Helped get him up and sit in living room.

The reason I became a private caregiver is the more I worked. I could see the joy and their pain disappearing. The client wanted to just be treated with respect and understanding. I have had the pleasure of working with Doctors and medical staff from Emory Johns Creek Hospital and local Primary Doctors. I have 20 years of experience in private home settings. I love taking care of people. It has always been a gift to help others in any medical care needed. Family included: Aunt, Grandmother, Parents
