*****CARING*COMPASSIONATE*RESPECTFUL*DEPENDABLE*TRUSTWORTHY***** It is an honor to work with seniors in my community. I grew up taught to respect my elders and in doing so learned that seniors are just young adults in an aging body. I learned about the frustrations and the difficulties of doing things that used to be easy, about the depressing, and sometimes humiliating, fact of having to depend on another for daily living activities. I also learned of the joy of sharing time, stories, humor and life experiences, and the rewards that come from it for both parties. I currently live on a small hobby far m that includes horses, a donkey, chickens, dogs, cats, rabbits and even a turkey. I spend quite a bit of time vegetable and fruit gardening and enjoy a variety of crafts. I am also a volunteer at the local senior center. I am married, with 5 grown children and 6 grandchildren, and am fortunate enough to still have both my parents! My specialties are Cancer Care, Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation, Post-Acute, Memory Care, and Hospice Care. I have an innate ability to anticipate the needs of my client, both emotionally and physically. I am open and approachable, and am able to comfortably converse with my client based on their interests and experiences. I'm known for giving great baths and showers and I'm nurse delegation certified, so I can assist with catheters, insulin, wound care and more. I have a clean, dependable car and insurance. I am willing to transport to appointments, outings and events or just stay home together. If you're looking for a provider with an outgoing, cheerful personality, then we may be the perfect match! ... more

Home Care Provider

Kitsap Tenant Support Svc

Mar 2015 - Jan 2016

I worked as a Home Care Provider for multiple clients with multiple needs. From running errands or taking a client out shopping, to housekeeping and medication reminders. I'm known for giving a great shower/bed bath and love giving a good pedicure! I'm a great cook of a variety of foods. I got along very well with all my clients, who on many occasions just needed a listening ear and a hug. My innate ability to anticipate the nee ds of my clients, especially those with dementia made me a highly requested caregiver. I truly enjoyed my job there but had to leave when I moved to the Elma area. ... more
