About David

You will find me to be a very compassionate person, one who consistently presents with a very positive attitude; one who ensures my clients' happiness and safety, and enables them to lead full and meaningful lives. I strive to exceed expectations in every environment. Clients find I excel at preparing good and varied meals and at keeping a safe, neat, and clean environment, as well as attending to personal needs. I enjoy the wealth of experiences that these people offer. I have worked with clients with a wide range of disabilities and have been able to be effective with the care of each of them. Such disabilities include paraplegics, MS, incontinence, hearing, eyesight, Alzheimer's and dementia, stroke and heart attack victims. I have used all sorts of Hoyer lifts for patients, and have been trained and certified to operate and secure mobility devices for transportation. I cared for my parents for over a year until their deaths, and later decided that I was good at it. My clients regularly ask for only me to work with their loved ones, and that is a good feeling. They appreciate the fact that they can feel safe and know I can be relied on to be there and be prompt about it. I have 8 consecutive years of verifiable experience. I will be moving to the East Tennessee area this spring, 2021, and can work with a varied set of needs. I hope you will speak to my current employers about me and my capabilities and my personality. They realize I wish to move back to my home state, so you can contact them at any time. I will need to find accommodations for living in the area (I currently live in Melbourne, Florida), so I can include your area on needs, but will require time for this.
