About Roxanne

I became a caregiver for my grandparents. During that time I felt privileged to be able to care for them during their last days with us. After their passing ,I made the decision to continue caring for the elderly. I'm a very patient ,enthusiastic ,observant ,an excellent record keeper,willing to learn almost everything within my scope to be successful at all my endeavors. I've got 10 years of experience working with the elderly. Many of my seniors were diagnosed with cancer , Alzheimer's and dementia , Chronic Heart Failure, Parkinson's disease, blindness, wheelchair bound or bedridden or just needed general care. In some instance I've worked at the hospital while hospice care was given or in the event of my client becoming ill and was hospitalized. In every instance I've been able to work with or without supervision. We've played games , watched TV, have had great conversations and sometimes we would go shopping, to church , to a recreational community center, or just for a walk. I would also do light house keeping, food preparation , administer medication and laundry. Caring for the elderly is not only an opportunity to serve people and bring enjoyment to their lives, it is also an experience that will allow me to learn and grow from interacting with those who still have a lot to give.
