I have been in health-care for many years, and have cared for many elderly and younger adults over the age of 40. I have worked in adult-homes, assisted living facilities, home-health care agencies, and have worked privately on many cases caring for clients in their homes as well. For as long as I can remember, I have always Loved and enjoyed helping people, and it always seemed natural for me to concern myself with someone else's well being above my own. I like interacting with other's and giving someone the opportunity to feel important, safe, secure, and most of all loved. I have had other jobs over the years, doing different kind of work, but for some reason, always ended up doing this kind of work. I liked working the other jobs, but I always lacked the passion that I had with caring for and helping others. I have always put the needs of other's above my own, despite the circumstances, and that I am proud of. I have a great deal of experience in personal care, which includes assistance with showering, bathing, dressing, assistance with any meds to be given, toileting, bed changes, laundry housekeeping, cooking, running errands, and companionship. The one duty I cannot perform is any lifting, or transferring at all. I would need a client who is mobile, or at least can get in and out of a wheelchair with very little assistance. I am also comfortable with pets, and have them of my own. I am very flexible with my availability. I would love to continue caring for others.
