I learn every day to provide for the needs that are needed for the people I care for and their family. Conditions turn into multiple problems so education must grow with needs of those you care for. This allows me to stay with them through their changes and some I have learned about that allows me to improve their health and fulfill their dreams or final wishes and giving guidance and comfort to family.
Also diabetics, Graves disease, Hashimoto. I learn to cook special foods. Trained / certified in Herbal medicine and Essential oils therapy. Customers Confined to wheelchair, transferring To and from for toilet,bed And showers.
customers with Diabetes, Dementia, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, PTSD lead me to training dogs for disabilites to help in aiding above situations. I watch , monitor and ease pain confusion and fear that comes with problems. I can and do handle all the situations that are to much for most. I do it with compassion ,love, respect and leave them with dignity,pride and respect intact. I carry a class A license, with clean background and fully insured. I am here for you! I've been a caregiver for a little under 3 years now and most of my experience is with patients that have ALS. I really enjoy what I do and try my hardest to give each person a chance to live their best life regardless of what their issues are! I don't pretend to know everything, but I do pride myself in using the knowledge I have gained to help other families in similar situations. In addition to care and assistance with ADLs such as but not limited to bathing/grooming, toileting, etc, I can also help with meal preparation, medication, feeding tubes, trach care, transfers, and daily PT/OT. I believe that a good caregiver not only cares for the patient, but also the family and the home. I'm patient, reliable, friendly, trustworthy, and eager to help! Give me a chance and you won't be disappointed!
