I worked as caregiver in Chicago for over 3 years then moved because of my spouse job relocation. I took care of my mother who was diagnosed with lungs disease and had breathing problems where she couldn't really do anything on her own. I bathe her, Fed her, and did everything for her and since then When she passed away I continue to give my love and affection to others who needs care. I'm currently working as caregiver in Plano area and still want to work according to the schedule that fits my daily routine. I'm currently taking care of two elderly clients both with Alzheimer's disease. I remind them t o take their pills. I cook meals, light house cleaning. Help them in shower and dress them up. I travel to their homes/ apartment or sometimes senior living facilities. If they have pets I changed for example the cat litter box and fed the cat. For dogs take them out to potty and fed them too.I love my job. I'm a hairdresser so if needed I could give them haircuts and style. I'm also in the process of getting my CNA class done. I also worked with a private client for a week, she can't walk so I was taking care of her to get her cleaned up, feeding her, taking care of her pets. Cooking, cleaning. She's paralyzed so she can only move her arms and in bed a lot. I loved working with her. Her husband was out of town so she had me work for her till he got back. ... more

Caregiver

Monarch senior solutions

Apr 2018 - Present

I do individual clients. I go to their home/ apartments and senior living care. I helped them with medication, check their daily routine check up and note down, for example if their pressure is high and for over a day then I called up he/she nurse and they called their doctor to increase their dose of medication. I do little bit of house cleaning, cook meals. If they have pets, I walk their dog out. Most of all they are alone and l ove companion some one to talk and listen to their feelings. I also work if need to stay overnight. I'm currently taking care of two clients regularly one is almost blind and in falling risk so I'm making sure she uses her walker and I'm right there behind her. I helped change her clothes into her night dress before going to bed. Help her with hygiene by giving her shower. I love my job and love taking care of them. I'm also in process of taking the CNA course. ... more
