I have been a caregiver my entire life. It is what I love to do. I have worked with the elderly in the past, professionally in a nursing home and assisted living as well as doing senior care in a private home .I assisted and provided care for a legally blind, 90-year-old American hero from Monday-Friday during the days. I have worked extensively in childcare and special needs care as well for years. I quickly realized how much I loved caring for the elderly. I have experience with dietary needs (diabetic, special diet, etc.), medication, bathing and clothing, dementia (and other memory conditions), exe rcise and physical therapy as well as housekeeping, appointment scheduling and visits. I am not one to just merely check off a list of things to do each day, but really engage the person in my care and try to go above and beyond. I want to be the next best thing to a family member, like a family member, a bonding relationship. This is my passion. ... more

My duties included g-tube feeding, medication distribution, diaper changes,bathing, clothing, daily hygiene, seizure attendance, repositioning, transferring, doctor appointments, companion care, massages, laundry, dishes, meal prep, etc. I am currently helping the family transition her into a long term care home, as it is getting to be too much for the family to have her living in the home with full time aides. ... more
