About Rebecca

I'm a 38 year old first time mom to an amazing 2 year old. I've always been a caring, nurturing person who was stuck working in retail. Finally almost 6 years later I made that change and went into the home care field. I was finally in a field that I was passionate about and loved. My first case had cerebral palsy who was also a quadriplegic. I worked with her for 5 1/2 years. Unfortunately while I was on maternity leave her mom grew ill to where she could no longer cover my hours to where she had to hire someone. I then briefly started working with a loving elderly woman who has been diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia. Sadly, her husband has also been diagnosed with the same disease. I started working with this couple in January of 2017. This was temporary as they moved up to Albany with their son in August. Luckily, my original client had asked if I could come back, so it was perfect timing. I've been back with her for over a year. Unfortunately, as heartbreaking it is to put into words, she passed away recently. As hard as it was, I know she would want me to continue doing what I'm passionate about. I'm seeking to work Friday, Saturday, Sunday overnights. As I don't want to miss out on my daughter growing up. I'm hoping to find a new person to fit my criteria as I want to continue to work in the field that I love.

Good Morning! I am Patti a 52 year old(young) honest, friendly, caring, compassionate, patient, attentive, non-smoking/drugging woman who is ready, willing, and able to help you when you need it! For the past 9 years I was a Personal Caregiver for a 98 year old elderly woman with errands, paperwork, Dr. appointments,and grocery shopping. I also helped an elderly man in his 80's with Parkinson's for 1 1/2 years. During that time I was responsible for medication management, wound care, bathing, personal grooming, dressing, meal prep, feeding if needed, house cleaning, and laundry. I have been certified here from The Care Academy for being a Professional Caregiver, Preventing Falls In Older Adults, and 5 different categories for Alzheimer's and Dementia . I currently drive an elderly woman with Dementia to Daycare 2 days per week her daughter hired me, and gave me a 5-star rating on care.com so I have excellent references. Thank you, I look forward to helping you soon!
