Summer Update [?]: I am free and available for the entire summer until day after Labor Day, in which afterwards, I go back to my schedule below. After Labor Day Availability: I am available late evenings, overnight til 4am w/sleep, & some weekends can be negotiated. What makes me a great caregiver is my patience and ability to take the lead to discern when a situation needs action or not. I have had many clients whose demands were very different but I adjusted right away bc I do understand the need for each person to have dignity and still feel as though they have a level of independence. I have serviced those as young as 38 with terminal cancer to those who were a mature age of 88 with heart, mobility, and respiratory issues, dementia, Alzheimer's, and bed-ritten, so I am well-rounded. I am a mother of 2 boys now young men and I am married but I have still devoted countless hours for my clients, even living in with them 24/7 and working 12 to 24 hour days, 7 days a week. I do not mind at all. I am gracious and love people too much. I will be a promising catch. Hi, my name is Mary and I am a CNA who is very interested in a position as a hourly or live-in caregiver.
I have 19 years plus experience as a 24/7 and/or hourly non-smoking, live-in caregiver. I have worked with patients with Parkinson's Disease, extensive experience with Alzheimer's & Dementia, neuropathy, cancer patients, stroke victims, diabetes, aphasia, bed-ridden, wheelchair bound individuals, patients that require feeding tubes, all types of lung disease (COPD, emphysema, asthma) that required nebulizer treatments and/or oxygen.
I have worked with a wide range of ages throughout my career, from newborns to 95 years young.
I provide professional, respectful, non-medical in-home care with services to include, but not limited to personal care, medication reminders, companionship, PT and OT, meal planning and preparation of meals (excellent cook), housekeeping, to include laundry, errands, shopping, appointments, outings, engaging clients in activities that will provide mental and physical stimulation.
Being a caregiver has become a passion of mine. I take great pride in knowing that through compassion and care I can make a difference in one's everyday life.
Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
