I am a born caregiver; I raised 4 offspring ensuring they became self sufficient and great contributors to their community. I have always found pleasure helping others reach their desired outcome. I have been a Live-in caregiver to a couple with mental challenges; in addition to caring for others, I was responsible for helping clients with physical and cognitive health challenges. This included helping clients, rise, walk, and assist in exercises. I ensured clients received proper nutrition by planning and preparing their meals, performing grocery shopping and checking food for expiration dates in the home pantry and refrigerator. I ensured clients took their proper medication, as scheduled by their physician. I performed a variety of housekeeping tasks that clients were no longer capable of doing, such as laundry, dusting, making beds, running errands, organizing mail and keeping a calendar of appointments. I transported and accompanied clients to medical appointments, on trips to the beauty salon, financial institutions, and to religious activities. I was responsible for keeping a daily journal, detailing the activities the clients performed during the day; required to report any signs of physical or cognitive difficulties to the agency I worked for, family and proper authorities. In an emergency medical situation, I phoned 911 while implementing First Aid. I have a Bachelors Degree in Sociology with emphasis on family and criminology. ... more
