About Janelle

I became a caregiver to share my respect for the elderly population by helping them to maintain respect and dignity in their later years. I want to help others to remain as independent and self sufficient as they can for as long as they can. I like to listen to the stories that my clients have to share. I like to help my clients to feel happy and to feel safe. An achievement that I am particularly proud of is knowing that a former client who became very special to me, was able to keep the relationships with her family and to mend the ones that she needed to mend.

    Experience & Education

    I cared for a severely disabled woman. My care allowed her to remain in her own home until the end of her life. At the beginning, I helped her to cook and play board games. As time went on, I made meals for her, shopped for her and continued to provide companionship to her. I helped her with bathing and other personal care and reminded her to take her medication.

    I have several years of experience as a personal care attendant, mostly for the elderly. I have worked in a facility, as well as provided in-home care both privately and through an agency. I have a lot of experience with all stages of dementia. I really enjoy this kind of work, and find it very meaningful. I love being helpful, love supporting vulnerable populations, and I love working with the elderly. I love to listen to people's stories, learning about who they are, hearing the wisdom they've gained throughout their lives and being there to make their lives a little easier. I have worked in the medical field for over a decade. My medical experience has been very useful in my role as a care provider. I also have experience helping others in a supportive, understanding, and compassionate way in my holistic healing work that I also do (Reiki, bodywork and aromatherapy), another role that I absolutely love. I love animals of all kinds, and have also done pet-care in the past, working for myself - everything from the big creatures like horses to the very small ones, like birds.

    I started working with people at a young age. I worked at a daycare for about two years and then moved to elderly care. I'm very kind hearted and a patient person. I love knowing that I'm helping someone's day become a little easier. I aspire to become a nurse one day and that is what I'm working towards. Ever since I started working in this field I love it I would never give it up !
