About Winnifred

I became a caregiver to learn hands-on, how to better take care of my husband who had end stage renal failure. Being a caregiver, I have made a lot of friends, learnt patience and from chats with my clients, come to value myself and people around me more. I am widowed with a daughter, live in Wheeling Illinois, experienced in caregiving/companion, and always open to learn new pattern of care for individual people.

My name is Tameika and I have cared for seniors as a Caregiver for many years. I completed my CNA training and worked in both Nursing Home and Private Duty settings where I was able to put that training to good use by assisting with Range of Motion exercises, transport patients in wheelchairs, supported ambulation efforts and provided safe transfers. I am also Certified/Trained to work with Individuals with Developmental Disabilities. I have worked in settings where I assisted with daily living skills required for independence. I've interacted with individuals with limited verbal communication skills and understanding using a variety of supports and positive techniques. I am compassionate, trustworthy, dependable and love working with people. I look forward to being able to utilize my skills and experience, expand my knowledge, and offer opportunities for personal and professional growth.
