About Ladonnia

I am a very outgoing, happy, friendly person. I love to hear stories , do puzzles and play games. I have a lot of patience and understanding and can follow orders but be compassionate about it. I help them with whatever they need, and if they don't ,I'm still there. IE: They start m,along the bed or doing laundry .I ask only there to help them and as long as they can do something for them selves it makes them feel good to do it or at last help you. I just love helping people and making their life easier when its no longer easier for them. I like to run errand and help them when they need it and if they don't I'm still gonna be there for when they do .The little things make a big difference. I have experience in dementia and COPD and know when you lose your memory or start to its really hard and people need to understand when their parents get upset its rarely at them personally, they are upset with themselves bacaouse they cant remember and its frustrating for them and sometimes they come across as being mad, they are not. I am proud of the memory wall and how it has helped so many people and helps them remember or just think they do.

I took care of his mom at Good Samaritan Village .She had dementia .was a very sweet lady, always smiling and laughing, had some bad days but not much. I made sure she ate right and exercised, we walked about 2 miles a day and did exercises everyday . She helped me do laundry clean the apartment and we had activities we did and I took her on outings to see things and out to lunch. I bathed and she dressed herself when she could which was a majority of the time. I helped her with her meds and we also played with other residents in the nursing homes. I took her to her appointments where her son met me there every time so he always knew what was going on and very involved with his mom. I sometimes worked weekends and took her to church , how she loved that.

I originally relocated to Santa Fe with my husband in 2007. It was part pre-retirement and also to move closer to his aging mother. I tried out a career with the TSA, but ultimately found it unrewarding. I changed careers 2 years ago to help an elderly friend. She is on a State Medicaid waiver, and had been unable to find a good fit through an agency. The agency caregivers where not allowed to care for her cat, so I came by to clean the cat box. She has no family, so a group of friends helped her get onto a self-directed waiver. I had found that working with elderly and disabled passengers was the most rewarding part of the job I was working at the airport, and was ready for a change. I am particularly proud of the work I do with this fiercely independent lady. I make all her doctor's appointments and transport her, and make sure all the paperwork for her multiple public assistance programs is filled out correctly and submitted in a timely manner. We enjoy shopping trips and going out for lunch. Since then I have also worked doing respite care and housekeeping/handywoman jobs independently. My first private client was residing at an assisted living home, but was requiring more attention than her family or the staff could provide. She was advancing in her Parkinson's disease, becoming more confused and needing help with toileting and ambulation. I ultimately helped the family find an appropriate memory care home for her. My current Carelinx client lives out in the countryside, so I help with a lot of outdoor tasks like cleaning her horse's corral and gardening. I do a lot of driving, taking her into town for doctor's appointments, Horse Therapy and shopping. I do a lot of appointment setting, help her balance her checking account, order her meds and fill the pill boxes.
