I love people. It would be MY pleasure to care for your parents. I have HAD several clients on a as needed basis. I used to house & Parent sit, so that the caregivers could take a vacation, leaving their parent in their own home. I cook, clean & provide personal care when needed. I can drive them to outings, doctor appointments etc. I have a Bachelors Degree in Human Services but I prefer individual care. I have passed my security check both here and at BSF. Bible Study Fellowship a Ladies Bible Class. MY husband and I are back in Vegas after 9 months of helping his folks in Santa Clara, CA. Hi s father had Pneumonia. I held a full time caregiver position for a 75 yr Young Lady with Dementia through CareLinx . I planned the Weekly Menu, shopped the Menu, and prepared 3 dinners a wk. My day started with Making Breakfast for us, getting her dressed, doing some exercises. I baked once a wk. Banana, Persimmon or Zucchini Bread. I would take her to appointments. I quickly found out that she LIKED BARBERSHOP MUSIC. & cars. I found out where a group of singers met 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month and went there. Whats Not to like Lunch at Harry's Hofbrau and some singing. She even joined in. Wives and friends really took to her. I also found out that she liked cars Dusenberg's YEP cars. Car club met at the BLUE DOOR RESTAURANT 2 nd Tuesday of the month YEP we where there. I had a $ 100. allowance weekly above & beyond grocery shopping. I used HER CREDIT CARD. I just left receipts in a drawer. Every Thursday she had a hair appointment, then we would go to Lunch usually BJ's for there lunch special of Ribs yep we would split a rack and still have plenty for left overs. This was my 2nd position with CareLinx,com, 1st was with a 93 yr old man just 15 hours a week in Vegas. I am back in Las Vegas, NV looking for maybe 10 more hours. Thanks for considering of me, ... more

Caregiver/Companion

CareLinx client

Care for 75 year old Lady with Dementia. Sat out her clothing, sometimes helped her get dressed. Made breakfast, was a companion, watched her favorite TV shows, went for walks, made lunch, cleaned kitchen, did activities. When I started I did a Menu for the week, then the grocery shopping, I prepared 3 meals a week. I would Bake Banana , Persimmon or Zucchini bread weekly. She had a standing hair appoint ment on Thursdays, I used as free time. My husband is in a Barbershop Chorus that meets at Harry's Hofbrau on Saratoga and Stevens Creek 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of every month, which She really enjoyed going with me. Randy and I also took her to SANTO'S LABOR DAY CAR RALLY. We had a blast. I've taken her to the movie's but now seems easier and warmer to stay home and just find something on Netflix. I really enjoyed being HER caregiver. ... more
