I have been a private duty caregiver for 9 years. I care for my clients the way I care for my family members. I love being around the elderly and helping them care for themselves. I've cared for Dementia, Alzheimer's, Dialysis, and hospice care clients in Knoxville before relocating to Hendersonville. I was also a substitute teacher in a special needs classroom. I dispatched for Knox County E911 (Knoxville Fire/Police Department) for twenty six years prior to my caregiving career. I' previously worked as an Assistant in a special needs classroom in sumner county. I currently have three senior care clients(Hendersonville, Brentwood, and Hermitage)
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
