I have worked in the "customer service" industry for quite some time now- but I need a change. I believe that working in the customer service industry for over 20 years will transfer over well to the care taking of another soul.
I am an intelligent and hard worker. I am also well organized and I learn quickly. I am seeking to connect with people and make a true impact on lives.
My father-in- law had a stroke in 2016. This was quickly followed with a stage 4 cancer diagnosis. He passed away a short 3 months later.
During this time, my husband and I invited him to live with us so we could help take care of him and his day-to-day needs. I also worked with a local, holistic nutritionist to make his j-tube bags (food). (I didn't like the idea of him being sustained on Ensure.) I also helped with the administration of some of his medications, ie: CBD oil and morphine.
I enjoy being active and outdoors, so your loved one could get some fresh air with me. I have a passion for cooking, and am good at it, so I wouldn't mind helping out in this area if the need arises. I have a lot of hobbies that I wouldn't mind sharing or teaching to help stimulate the brain like; crochet, beading, and sewing to name a few. We could even sit and read, work a Sudoku puzzle, or color. I love playing board games and card games as well. I do not mind helping out around the house with chores. If help with cleaning duties or laundry is needed, I don't mind pitching in. If there is a trip to the doctor or store that is needed, I can help with the transportation and execution of this need.
I believe life is precious. My father-in-laws passing was a great reminder that taking time for others is important. I desire to make a difference in others lives and help lessen the burden that I personally know comes with taking care of a loved one.
