About Nichole

I am a dedicated and compassionate human service worker. I have a vast background of nonprofit/care giver work that spans over the course of about 5 years. I have worked in diverse settings such as working with homeless men in downtown Austin. I have a special place in my heart of senior care though, I love working with those who need assistance so they can stay in their homes comfortably. I've been trained in Alzheimer's and Dementia care, this has given me an understanding and unlocked a special place in my heart to care for those who are suffering from this unfair disease. I strive to make their lives as easy, comfortable and happy on a daily basis by keeping organized, preparing healthy and timely meals, keeping meal logs, med logs, appointment logs and daily notes of their activities and moods that day for family and friends to know how their loved one did on a daily basis. I love giving seniors a sense of relief knowing someone is there keeping their daily lives in order while they can enjoy their family, grandchildren and even their favorite TV show. I am looking to find a dedicated family I can work for, someone that knows they have someone there for their mother or father, or grandparent who cares and is dedicated to their job.

    I have had a lot of life experience that makes me uniquely qualified. My family refers to me as the safety officer as I am hyper vigilant to my environment. I naturally express care for everyone around me. I have cared for my mother in my home in the last years of her life. I did all her hospice care before her death in 1999. I love helping and caring for adults in need. I have helped many friends after surgeries during recovery. I am interested in temporary positions like recovery time care or any temporary houshold duties or shuttling. To give caregivers a break might be the perfect temporary position.
