About Tamara

1. I became a caregiver about 5 years ago. 2. I like the flexibility and the need to care for someone. 3. One personal achievement I am proud of is that I moved across the country by myself from Minnesota five years ago and have dealt with all the stress/changes that involves. 4. I am a caring person. I believe that all people need to know that someone cares about them. I have a mercy motivated heart for people. I have worked with toddler/preschoolers for the past five years. I completed a course for Medical Transcription and had some training in Massage Therapy. One of the children I have been watching will be going to school, so I need to find other employment to supplement or replace the childcare I offer presently. I am certified and licensed by the state of Washington as a CNA.

*I worked in a nursing home as a nursing assistant in 1978-1979 in Rochestor Methodist Hospital and Cannon Falls Nursing Home in Cannon Falls, MN. *I filled in for a friend as a caregiver for a bit...helping with showering, getting her dressed, preparing meals, light housekeeping and companionship, getting her ready for bed...in the Minneapolis, MN area in about 2002. * I cared for both my mom and dad at separate times following each of their rotator cuff surgeries in the 1990s. *I cared for my mom in 1992 following her back surgery...including bathing, dressing, meals, maintaining meds and icing schedule and transferring her...including light housekeeping duties. *More recently, I cared for my friend Mona Dill (425-281-8344) from Carnation, WA. I drove her to the hospital for shoulder sugery, stayed there and drove her home. I managed her pain meds, meals, laundry, ice, and made her comfortable and stayed with her for 3 nights and 2 days. *I stayed with my Grandmother-in-law and my dad in their last hours/days of life and was able to be a support for them before their deaths. *I assisted both of my granddaughters births. *Besides raising and homeschooling my 3 children for 11 years. I provided childcare for my 2 granddaughters from birth to 5 years of age, with all that it entails, which is quite similar to caring for elderly in some ways. I have had alot of experience with caring for people of all ages.I know I have assisted alot more, but cannot recall at this time.

Please read my experience and skills. The hourly or daily rate is competitive with the rates charged by the Home care agencies and depends on the level of care and also the amount of hours of service. I offer you experience, competence, compassion and professionalism. Coming to work every day with a smile on my face I will always take care of you or your beloved ones the same way I would like to have someone taking care of my parents. Here's few things about me, my experience and services I can provide: I've been a professional caregiver for more than 11 years. I started in Adult Family Homes then i moved into the home care agencies and one to one care. For the last 9 years I've been working only independently in private homes hired privately by families. Few of my experiences are : ALS, MS, Parkinson, Dementia, Hoyer lift experience, colostomy bag, tube feeding, bathing and dressing assistance, driving safely for appointments and more. I am competent and i have the necessary experience to provide your beloved once with the best care, respect and dignity they deserve. Detail oriented, i will always strive to learn and to do things the way you are accustomed to! For me the most important is to safely do the things YOUR WAY and assist you the best of my abilities. If i believe that something or a way we are doing things isn't safe enough i won't hesitate to explain you why and ask for your opinion. Good cooking skills, and i can follow directions and instructions when given. Fluent and clear in English. Feel free to call, text or email me with any questions you might have, or to setup an in person short interview. I will be happy and honored to provide you few of my recent work references. I'm looking forward to speaking with you. Sincerely, Constantin M.
