About Meredith

I'm Meredith, a 21 year old graduate student. Instead of looking for work as a bartender or waitressing I am a caregiver. Growing up I have had to help lend a caregiver's hand to both my grandfather and grandmother. Then more recently, my brother, after an accident. However, adults are my bread and butter! I tend to really get along with and have fun with adults and older adults. In college I majored in Hearing Disorders and took several Aging Studies courses. I am energetic, empathetic, organized and a great problem solver.

I pride myself on being devoted to providing the very best care I can give to those given to my care. I was a certified nursing assistant and medication technician some years ago and because I went into another field working as a collections manager I let my licenses expire (regretfully) but I maintained the knowledge. I also remembered how rewarding an experience it is to be able to meet and care for awesome people, most of which have shared some amazing life stories with me. This is the reason I re entered this field, and I enjoy it even more now than before! I know that there may come a time in my latter years when I might need care for myself and I'm a strong believer that you get back what you give in life. I love caring for others! I have many verifiable references as proof. I hope I can be of service to you!

I've always loved helping elderly people. Part of what makes me a great caregiver is that people I care for tell me I understand them even when no one else seems to. I ask lots of questions to determine what they want and need. Therefore, they have the maximum autonomy, independence and happiness possible, which is definitely what I would want for myself. I also have the gift of extreme patience when working with elderly people with dementia. They never drive me crazy, most likely because of lots of exposure early in life to that sort of thing. Of course, I'm completely trustworthy. But I also have unusually high integrity, excellent values and am unusually responsible and capable. I have extensive college training in medical information and know what to do. I've been trained by some of the best private caregivers in Louisville and have a network of other excellent caregivers. I have a very wide range of experience in this area up to and including working closely with hospice staff. I'm a multi-talented individual who's an unusually accomplished American. Therefore, I have all kinds of personal achievements I'm proud of. I simply enjoy this type of service and autonomy more than most types of professional work I've done.
