I'm a very patient and caring person, I work with althemizer & dementia clients the most but have worked with so many different clients with different disabilities, I love doing this kind of work it gives me substance and I love being there for people or lending a helping hand, I've worked in this field since 2003, starting with children then with seniors, I have my drivers license, a car and insurance, have pass the livescan, if clients are able I like taking them out and doing things with them movie, shopping or whatever the client feels they would like to do or go. I'm very trustworthy and hate being late, sometimes I might get there a lot early but will be there with a smile and ready to help I. I became a Caregiver because the word "Caregiver" is what I am. I care for humanity with special needs or partial/full assistance and a giver because I give all I have on my reach to those who need to do the things they can't, for example (ADL's) Activities of Daily Living.
2. I like everything I have done so far as a Caregiver. From experiencing clients with the care of only companion to the care of hospice. Many clients I had done care for with different cases and thats what I like about being a caregiver, because those cases are reality in life that make me stronger when the time comes to my love ones or myself also, the satisfaction I feel when a person says thank you with gratitude.
3. The achievement I am proud of is when a client or patient recuperates from a physical or health problem with my care.
4. I can say about myself is what people had told me in my 37yrs. of age. Also, what I truly considered and had known through my years as a Caregiver. I am lovable, caring, funny, smart, responsible, I have good memory of schedules and program a routine, I am a mom of 3 educated and good children of ages 15, 11 and 8, and I am also happily newlywed with a wonderful man. I love to cook healthy foods, clean and organized. I always tried to make sure the other person is comfortable and happy. I have good sense of humor and I also consider myself honest and respectful with others. My name is Latonia. I am a reliable, honest, nurturing, enthusiastic and a patient caregiver.
I can start immediately if you have not found a caregiver yet or need a backup person.
I am a college graduate, a non-smoker and comfortable with friendly pets.
I have over 20 years of experience providing care to seniors, individuals with special needs/conditions and children.
**I am committed to providing professional, ethical, and quality service.
**I am covered by comprehensive liability insurance, have undergone criminal background checks, and I am bonded.
Although I have 20 years of professional experience, I work with seniors and individuals with special needs/special conditions because of a loving/supportive person that took care of my mother before she lost her battle to breast cancer. Therefore, I hope to show that same love/support to you and/or your loved one that was shown to my mom.
I provide clients with a wide range of in-home customized one-on-one services that foster independence and are unique to each individual's needs and level of ability.
Services that I could provide may include:
**bathing, dressing, grooming
**feeding and special diet, etc.
**behavioral support related to caring for someone who has dementia, cognitive delays, developmental delays, wandering, depression, combative and aggressive, etc.
**awake overnight care
**transferring and positioning
**Other areas can be discussed based on needs
Thank you for your time, and I look forward to connecting with you and/or your loved one.
