About Jose

Good day. I am a 56 yr old father of 4, experienced caregiver. I attended Baylor University in the 80's for a couple of years before enlisting in the USAF. I worked with students with disabilities for Northside ISD for many years. For a few years now, I've immersed myself in the seniors care field and have devoted my work to assist the families of: a WWII 94yr old veteran with dementia and blindness, a 63 yr old retired DEA agent with Parkinson's symptoms, a charming southern lady with fall risks, an army veteran with Alzheimer's, and a former Texas cowboy with post-traumatic brain injury. I'm well versed in providing many services required in at-home caregiving. I have helped with everything from mobility, light housekeeping/meal prep, meds mngmnt, and bathing to companionship, bathing, wound care, and physical/occupational/speech therapy exercises. I believe if given an interview, you'll see I might suit your expectations. Direct communication with me optional. References upon request, of course. Thank you. Jose T

I enjoy the responsibility of assisting a 65 yr old male recovering from traumatic brain injury. Among my many duties, A.B. requires help with walking/balance/equilibrium issues; some help with decision making. He calls me his shadow. I can cook, clean, feed, transfer, converse, bathe, etc. Our main concern is falls and risky decision making that can and have forced him back to the hospital throughout.
