Hello! My name is Elaine and I'm a great caregiver because, after looking after my father who had Alzheimer's for four years, I have the kind of experience and genuine compassion for seniors that I would want if I were looking for a caregiver. I have completed my CNA training, and am CPR certified. I've also completed several certificate courses in Safety, Memory Care, etc.. Safety is my number one priority. I'm all about fall prevention and have developed techniques to keep my clients as mobile and self-sufficient as possible while keeping them safe at the same time.
For me, looking after elders is a privilege. I think that in this sometimes youth-obsessed culture, we can forget how much we all owe to the Greatest Generation. I love to talk to my clients about their experiences, their children, the music they loved, and anything else that brings a smile to their faces! From my father I learned about the music and culture of the 30's, 40's and 50's, and I love it when my clients sing their favorite songs or talk about what movies they liked from those days.
I like to cook, so if your loved one has any favorite dishes I'm happy to make them. I can prepare fresh, healthy foods as well as fun desserts.
I hope you will consider me for your Caregiver.
I cared for a elderly couple in my home for three years. My job duties included cooking healthy meals, doctor appointments, walking, exercising, activities (dominoes, cards, puzzles, etc.), toileting, bathing, dressing, grooming and daily/Sunday Mass.
I also took care of my lovely mom in my home for two years before her death. I felt honored and privileged to care for this wonderful lady who gave birth to me and my siblings.
I love being around the elderly. I love hearing about their lives and family stories. I just love caring for these special people!!!!!
