I began my career in caregiving several years ago when I left my career in nonprofit management to provide FT care for my mother, Julia. She was 75 and dealing with congestive heart failure, COPD, dementia and other chronic medical conditions. After she passed, I began offering care for other families. Presently, I provide companionship care two days a week for a family with two senior adults, one (female, age 88) with mid-stage dementia and the other (male, age 77) with ALS. I also provide companionship care two to three days a week for a senior (female, age 80) with early stage dementia. I also provide PRN (as needed) care for a senior (female, age 94) with late stage dementia. I am very comfortable working with adults experiencing dementia, alzheimers and/or other chronic illnesses. I enjoy building relationships that help keep the adults I care for as happy and healthy as possible while remaining in their own homes. If you feel I may be a good fit for your loved one, I am very interested in learning more about your needs and would be happy to talk with you on the phone or meet with you in person.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
