My mother was an RN that owned a large senior day care that I grew up in, in her twilight years I became her caregiver so I've been on both sides of the 'caregiver' role, I know how hard it is to find a good match and how important dependability, honesty and a compassionate heart is. I've remained in this role all these years because I genuinely love history and people to me are the ultimate living walking history especially seniors. I've won many awards but I'm most proud when I'm able to bring comfort or a smile to someone. I have many references letters and awards, can provide all at interviews my hourly rate is negotiable depending on hours, 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.
