Why? Because I care, and am blessed to be able to. Here's how it happened: I became a caregiver first when grandma was diagnosed with cancer. Moved in with her for 3 months until she died. (We live in same town.) . That was 6 year's ago. Four years ago we moved my mother-in-law in with us. (She's 78 & was diagnosed in 2005 .) I continue to be the full time caregiver, with an aide who comes several times a week to help with bathing. Yes, I sometimes get pretty stressed, but I'm just thankful I am able to do this for them. I hope the time will never come that I'll have to resort to putting them in a nursing home. . If it was up them the parents would have gone to a nursing home long time ago. Praise the Lord, He has giving me strength to make a difference here!
I have 4 years of experience caring for seniors with a a variety of required care levels. I have extensive experience with those with memory impairment I have also completed a dementia training course. I enjoy engaging seniors in various activities to further enrich their lives whether it be a light walk, engaging in a puzzle or even just having a meaningful conversation. I can provide an array of cares such as toileting, bathing/dressing, medication reminders/administration, laundry, meal preparation, and light housekeeping.
I am a caring soul born and raised here in Texas and I take great pride in helping those who can not help themselves. I work against the clock in moments when time is of the essence, I keep a very punctual schedule for a great outcome as well as to show respect for others time. I am an overachiever and do not expect anything in return, I take any kind of constructive criticism and l am not to prideful to learn better more efficient ways to do a task. I am a hard worker and most importantly I am very caring but I can establish a relationship with a client to a way where we are both comfortable, but I can also do my job.
