About Tammy

Hello, my name is Tammy. I am a 42 year old woman who has been a caregiver since I was 16 years old. I have worked in nursing home, and private home settings. I provide help with all activities of daily living including but not limited to bathing, toileting, dressing, medication management, light housekeeping, laundry, cooking, and honest, reliable companionship. I also have experience using Hoyer and Sara lifts, also gait belts. I have experience working with people with all types of mental and physical challenges such as dementia, Alzheimer's, MS, cerebral palsy, diabetes, chronic pulmonary obstructive disease, emphysema, cancer, heart conditions, etc. I have experience with people with feeding tubes, colostomy bags, and catheters. I love helping people remain independent and in their homes. I am a non- smoker but don't care if you do, I am also comfortable around most pets. I am also CPR and First Aid certified. Thank you for your consideration.

    When my father was sick, I used to fill in as a caregiver. I learned from the nurse and other medical person. I took care of his medicine reminder, food serving, ambulation, and other work as instructed. That was the beginning of my career as a caregiver which I am proud of. I am a dependable and a reliable person.
