About Belinda

I like to encourage and lift up the spirits of my patients. I took care of my mother who was in a wheelchair and then later became bedridden for over 10 years. We would watch tv together. I would be her legs and get her whatever she needed. Mom and I would also go to her doctor appointments together. I would set up appointments for her also. I assisted her in transferring to her wheelchair on a sliding board and also used a Hoyer lift to sit her in her wheelchair. I would be there during physical therapy and do exercises with her on days there was no physical therapy. I also set up her medication for the week and administered it to her. We would go outside in the backyard on nice days and garden together. I did all this everyday for over 10 years. Towards the end she used a bed pan. I changed her sheets and did her laundry. I enjoyed caring for her. Mom and I had a good time together. She was also a bariatric patient. She weighted over 400 lbs.

With my great work ethic, positive personality and reliability I would be a strong candidate for this position. I have five years experience in senior care professionally and over 10 years in taking care of families, friends, relatives who are wheel chair bound, stroke etc. I understand what it takes to make them a top priority by approaching them with the love and respect that they deserve. I create a special bond with every senior/client under my care and make every moment fun and memorable with their safety always coming first. I am confident of my great qualities and values that every client/senoir will be happy about.
