I have been a caregiver for about 7 years. I worked in a hospital setting with behavioral health and geriatric psych. I have experience with substance abuse and detox as well. I am knowledgeable with transfers, transfer and pivot, hoyer lifts, incontinence care, showering and bed baths, meal prep, some wound care, catheter care and hospice. Highly experienced with dementia, sundowners, and rehabilitation. I have managed senior living apartments and been a private duty supervisor. I miss the connection with the residents and the families. I feel that if you can give someone a little hope in their lives it can change them. I have hospice care knowledge and worked with numerous hospice companies and ancillary services to help provide the quality and dignified care our seniors deserve. I have knowledge of government programs and aid that are available and have worked with senior care network with VA benefits and guardianships for the elderly. ... more
