I started my journey as a caregiver with my father who had cancer. This snowballed into taking care (at the same time) of my husband who was diagnosed with cancer also. They died a year apart from one other. My experience in caregiving for them is priceless. The lessons I learned are invaluable. After that I moved in with a elderly lady who needed assistance with cleaning, cooking, bathing, doctor appointments, ect. She died three years later. About that time my mother was needing more assistance. I handled her health issues (which were many), cleaning, cooking, entertainment. I cared for her through hospice at my home when the time came.
I then for two years worked with a lady who had dementia and type one diabetes.
I have a tremendous amount of empathy for senior citizens. They are wonderful people who need companionship and help doing their day to day chores. The older you get, the harder it gets for simple everyday actives, chores.
I am compassionate, honest and have a great sense of humor. I would
love to get to know you. Hi, I currently provide nanny, housekeeping, companion care, specialty, senior and home health care services. I specialize in assisting families with part-time, occasional, as needed, short-term, date night, etc. My background includes being a current LPN, Have a Bachelors in Social Work and was an addiction counselor for 5 years and am now enrolled online in a business degree. I love the variety that my job provides me. I began providing daycare services when I was 16 and was a licensed provider in Anoka county along with being a crisis care provider. I have a valid recent background check and can provide references. I look forward to speaking with you regarding my qualifications. I am a very patient individual and believe that communication is the key to resolving most difficulties in life. I decided to end my 5-year career as a counselor and enter into self-employment as I love working with the very young as well as the elderly and knew there was a real need for families who had difficult to fill hours. I have 4 children of which 2 are military and 2 teens at home. I am a single mom who enjoys nature walks, being involved in the church and living a serene and quiet lifestyle. Reading, riding motorcycles and walks a few of my favorite things to do.
