About Robert

\"My passion for caretaking came when my grand dad was left under my care and I took care of him until he passed away. Since then, I have been taking care of loved ones until they've sadly departed. All of my experience has been hands-on and I can assist in all aspects of home care from companionship to bathing/dressing, to meal preparation. I can also assist in managing doctor visits and ensuring that doctors stay coordinated. I am a certified CNA / LPN With the Maryland Board of Nursing and also certified in First Aid, CPR and AEDs for adults and children. My hobbies are reading and spending time with family, time permitting. I have references available upon request, and they would be happy to speak with you about the level of care I have for my patients and the type of care I offer. I'm open to short-term engagements, but prefer longer-term so I can build your trust over time and provide care in a way that meets each of your unique needs. I would enjoy talking about helping you or your loved one.

Experience & Education

Caregiver

Jan 2006 - Nov 2015
Senior home aid care.
I would be a perfect fit as a caregiver because my clients have described me as a balance of being responsible, patient, thoughtful and caring. I think a lot of times there are many caregivers that are some of these characteristics, but I try to do all of them at the same time. Caregiving requires a lot of personal patience because growing old is not easy and getting sick is not easy. I understand that this can be hard. I try my best to make accommodations, within reason. I think my clients have appreciated how helpful I have been.
