1 New Haven Caregivers found
I am an experienced occupational therapist with a background in caregiving. While returning to school as a career changer in my 30s , I worked as a caregiver for a client with severe rheumatoid arthritis, and another with dementia and Parkinson's Disease. I especially enjoyed finding creative ways to redirect my patient with dementia while supporting optimal physical exercise, hydration and PO intake. The family of my patient said she was most hydrated and exercised during my care, and they used me as the standard for the other caregivers. I provided such great care for my client that the family retained my services even after I graduated with my masters degree in occupational therapy! They increased my pay which was nice, but the trust they had in me was such an inspiration. The family would travel out of state and leave their mom in my care. I took care of that client until she passed away years later. Being a practicing occupational therapist will be a great benefit for the clients I get to work with, because I will certainly bring more than the basic caregiving skills to the job. As an OT, I currently conduct CNA competency training at my facility. I look forward to providing my expertise to family members and other relevant persons in order enhance the care of my patients.
