I have been doing private care off and on for 20 years. I was raised with 3 of my great grandparents and have always been told to respect and help my elders. I feel that many people were not raised with those morals and I pride myself on being a compassionate & caring caregiver. I started out being a caregiver with just my family, and over the years I decided to further my career & education; I was a CNA by 18 years of age, then worked in that capacity for many years, then I was a phlebotomist, a drug screener, a medical office secretary, a clinical medical assistant, and now I am enrolled in college to become a RN. I am very compassionate, empathetic, and understand that elders with dementia issues require a little more care & someone who will not get offended by what they say, and one who will just talk to them with respect. I would be a welcome addition to your family to provide amazing care to your loved one. ... more
