I am a person centered caregiver which means no matter what, the person I'm caring for needs will always be the center of my attention. My clients will never leave my care without feeling better, the environment cleaner, needs met, and cared for. I will always provide dignity and respect towards my clients. I started my care giving career with the neighbor boy who was my age, and he had multiple sclerosis. His Mom paid me to sit with him, and play video games and make lunch. I remember pushing his wheelchair through my yard, and providing him a childhood friend. I went on to get my CNA license because I loved the thought of caring for the elderly especially doing their hair and getting them dressed. My skills and experience range from light housekeeping duties with companionship to medical experience. I have experience in trach suctioning, tube feedings, medication administration, nail care, many developmental disabilities, mental illness and also dementia and alzheimers that come with age. I have enjoyed my experience in the home health care and group home industry the past 15 years and I have decided to go off on my own and provide in-home care only. I love what I do! Let me help take a load off and provide quality, Christian care for whatever your needs may be! I love to cook so if you just need meals prepped for the week of your choice, I can do that too in your home! I am offering personal in home care for the Elderly in a Radius of 15 miles from Congress Park.
Through my work as a CNA and Massage Therapist in Hospitals,Retirement homes,Nursing homes and private care I gained a lot of experience over the years.
I support the individual with their independence,personal care,running errands,preparing meals,outings,cleaning and organizing and whatever needs arise.
I am a punctual, passionate,caring,sensitive,respectful and outgoing person and honor each individual.
Each encounter with a Person who crosses my path is always a gained experience which I treasure.
I am looking forward to connect with you.
Tina I started helping my grandparents at a young age. I could relate to them, and would sit and listen to 78 rpm records, w/ my grandfather, and he would tell me stories about the music we listened to. I traveled around the World, w/ my parents at their families,and would have to help them in their needs. In 2000, I started working at Nursing Homes in Boulder, and have continued to this day.
I can relate to the elderly, whether they are male or female. I like seeing them happy and pleased, when I have helped them in any way.
The fact that I have been with various clients for over 6 yrs. continuously, before they have passed on.
I live in Lafayette, Colo. Am a homeowner, am very religiously minded, and am always putting "other people first", before myself. I always think of the aspect of: "how would I feel, were I in the other individuals' shoes?" and how they would want to be treated?
