My parents were both very involved with volunteering. I learned early on the benefits and rewards of being caring, kind and helping others. My mom lived in her own home until she recently passed away at 98. We had various caregivers for her over the years, and while some were wonderful, there were many more that were not. I treat people the way I would treat my own mother...with respect and dignity. I try to find what brings joy to whomever I'm caring for. Do they like to sing or be sung to, play cards, board games, go for a walk? I can help clean, make meals, get groceries, transport to and from Dr v isits and hair appointments or just give a full time caregiver a break. I helped my mom with bathing, grooming and dressing and am willing to learn how you do things. I have a heart of gold when it comes to people who need a little extra help, especially the elderly. I'm reliable, patient, trustworthy and will always show up with a smile. I hope to hear from you....Denise Will also do evening checks after 6:30 p.m. I can make sure loved one ate dinner, took meds, help get ready for bed, take dog out, make sure doors secured or just visit. One to two hours @ $25 an hour. I will gladly give you references upon request. P.S. - I should also mention that I'm allergic to cats....sorry! ... more

I currently work for a family whose Mom has early onset Alzheimer's. Each day is different, and we try to keep active depending on how she feels. We might make breakfast, clean, take her to Dr appointments, run errands, go to lunch, the book store, take the dog for a walk, movies, visit the dog shelter or go to the park. Some days when she's not feeling so well, we just stay home and talk and watch TV. We have developed more of a friendship, and I look forward to seeing her just as much as she looks forward to my visits. ... more

I visit with a 90 year old gentleman who has Alzheimer's. We stay close to home and take the dog for a walk, have lunch, do some raking in the yard and sing.

I visit with an 89 year old women twice a week due to her not being able to drive any longer. A typical visit consists of going to the hair salon, grocery store, bank and when needed to the doctors. Most importantly we go visit her sister who is in a nearby assisted living facility. I will also help her do some cleaning and things around the house.

Volunteer

Various agencies

Jan 1989 - Jul 2016

I've worked full time the majority of my life in the insurance industry as a commercial property underwriter. My company decided to close the Dallas office in 7/16, and that's when I decided to take my love of volunteering to next level. Most of my experience with caring for people has been in the form of volunteering in the evenings or on weekends. I started with Office on Aging in Carrollton, TX where I took folks to the Dr's o r grocery shopping. Then I got involved with Mobile Meals where I delivered meals to home bound folks in the area. I joined Trinity Hospice until they were bought out and am currently a volunteer for Grace Hospice in Plano. In Dec 2017 I did something new and volunteered at the SoupMobile Christmas Gala at the OMNI Hotel in Dallas where they invite 500 homeless folks to stay and celebrate the holiday. ... more
