About Tera

Hi! I have a passion for working with the elderly because each person has unique characteristics to learn. I enjoy assisting each person any way I can and spreading my positive attitude. My favorite part of caregiving is providing companionship. My strengths are great customer service, strong work ethic, ( on time, alert for time off, complete all work) and professional. I have experience working with persons with dementia, cancer, and depression. I know how to take vitals. I am currently persuing my Associate's degree in Medical Assisting. One wow fact about myself is that I have developed three community programs one of which is called Lost, But God Found. It is a mentoring program through my church to assist grieving widows of either gender. To learn more about me or if you are interested in my services please see my profile.

    Independent caregiver
    I assist one elderly lady while I worked in another job. I am her health advocate. I accompany her to doctor's appointments to assist with remembering what to bring to the doctor's attention and report any changes. I take her to the emergency room if her doctor cannot see her and she is sick. I fill her prescriptions, fill her medication organizer, and make sure she consumes the medication. I write her vitals down in a notebook for the nurse to review and communicate monthly for updates. I dust, vacuum, clean the bathrooms and kitchen, cook meals, and grocery shop. I even buy her clothing. I provide companionship. Start date: 01/2013 through present
