About Theresa

As a dedicated caregiver to elderly residents of assisted living and memory care communities, I am an excellent match to the caregiver opening positions, Since 2012 I have worked as a caregiver where I assist residents with dementia and Alzheimer's disease with daily living needs, which include providing services to aid in memory care, physical care and psycho-emotional care optimizing residents' quality of life. Deeply committed to treating my elderly clients with dignity and respect, my goal is to win their trust and alleviate any embarrassment or anxiety they may feel when needing assistance with bathing, toileting, grooming or other personal care. I also excel at planning creative activities customized to resident needs and physical/mental abilities. Examples include pet visits from a nearby animal shelter, game nights, outdoor concerts, card tournaments, art and yoga classes, spa days and makeover sessions. It can be challenging at times, but I truly enjoy working with elderly residents. Though I strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the residents, the ongoing lessons I have learned from them have in return made a lasting impact in my life.
