Hello! I have 12 years experience in the medical field. I've been doing companion/homecare for 10 years. My work is extremely rewarding. I strive for my client to enjoy the interaction and am appreciated for the light housekeeping, laundry and meal prep.
My overnight care experience has consisted of medication management, dressing, undressing, help with bathing, daily hygiene before getting dressed, incontinence, brace, gait belt, sling, bed rails, urinals and the use of scooters, canes, walkers and wheelchairs.
Both clients were stroke patients and am familiar with cueing, toileting, standing and sitting positions. A patient of 7 years, stroke victim, paralyzed in his left side. My patient of 1 year, 4 night live-in, stroke as well but full movement.
I have completed a respite care case recently and am now more knowledgable caring for cancer patients. Hi, I'm Erin!
I've been in the healthcare field for the past 9 years, beginning my career as a Medical Assistant. I've grown throughout the years and I have acquired a passion for helping others, especially the elderly. No matter the need, I will be there for you or your loved one. I can provide a listening ear, help with meal prep, toileting, household chores, and much more. The thing I most enjoy about being a caregiver is that I can provide the family with the help needed to ensure that their loved one is being taken care of properly. Whatever you may need, I am a call away, and will be as communicative as possible with you.
