After a career in teaching special education, I am ready for a life change. Last year I was able to moved back home to Pittsburgh from Harrisburg, PA to take care of my mother, who was suffering from COPD, since both of my daughters had graduated from high school and left for college. I was divorced and wanted to return to my family. At first, I looked for another full-time teaching position, but since I missed the beginning of the school year, and maybe my advanced age, I was only able to find work as a substitute teacher. At 55 years old and in this stage of my life, I have decided that I would better be able to help individuals through a one-on-one relationship, rather than a classroom of 25+ children. My experience taking care of others includes being a mother, daughter, and granddaughter. My mother and I lived with my grandmother until she passed away at 93, taking care of her, so that she would not pass away in a nursing home. Once my grandmother passed away, my mother became so sick, she had to retire at 70, and passed away 6 years later from complications with COPD and heart disease. I spent my summers taking care of my mother, and came home every weekend for years, until she died last year. When thinking about a career change, I became convinced that I could help myself, and others, by providing companionship and helping with personal care as well as domestic duties. My education is in teaching, rather than medical, so my opportunities are limited. However, I am willing pursue additional professional development to gain the skills needed to help others, as I am helping myself. My personal achievements that I am most proud of are my grown children. Jeanne, 21, attends Temple University for business, and Jacqueline, 18, attends Penn State for music. I look forward to their futures, but continue to miss the family who raised me. This is why I am seeking employment working as a caregiver.

Have been working as a care giver with elderly seniors with Dementia, Neuropathy, or Partially paralyzed due to a stroke, brain tumors, or old age doing cooking cleaning laundry grocery shopping medication reminders or just sitting communicating with then. I find it very gratifying to assist these who have some struggles with certain areas in their lives. I have found my clients seem to appreciate the companionship and the assistant I bring to them. This is not a new field of expertise for me I worked in nursing homes when I was younger. Then became a beautician for many years After two automobile accidents I started a business going into seniors citizens homes doing hair for them to give the ladies some independence. I took care of my mother for 2 years trying to keep her home while she was suffering from Dementia diabetes and heart disease. As I needed to go back to work I have been working as a care giver. Enjoying my time with my clients. I have not limited myself to seniors only as I do realize younger people need help as well. I do have copies of MY Own Background Check which can be provided upon request. I think I am a very caring friendly and out going person. A little different than most always trying to find the lighter sunnier side to life.
