About Tawnya

eternalyouth4all@gmail.com I have worked as a Private Home Health Care Provider for Seniors for over 20yrs. I worked for Dave Robinson who was the Supervisor for Senior Citizens Health Care in Olympia for many years. My Specialty is with Dementia/Alzheimer patients. I have provided companionship, cooking and light housework, plus shopping. I have found that giving patients \\"Special Quality\\" time in the comfort of their home or natural surroundings is of the Greatest Importance to Seniors who are faced with the challenges of Dementia/Alzheimer. I have worked with increasing their abilities of Brain Function through artwork, reading to them, chair exercises, singing their favorite songs and playing games. No matter what stage of Dementia they are in I love to encourage calm, peaceful, and fun interaction. I am open to providing home health care for those who have other needs as well. I have cared for those with Parkinson's, Strokes, and Quadriplegics. I have several references if needed. I am ready and available to work, anywhere from 48 to 72 hrs a week, as a live in private health care provider.

I have been in the healthcare profession, for over 20 years. I've also obtain all my credentials that are required of me to become a C.N.A.. My passion has always been to help others, and meet special needs. I'm currently, on my off days mentoring other woman, in different trails in there lives to let them no there is hope, And I feel honored to be in that position, to give back. I'm also skilled in the requirement as a C.N.A. Looking forward to meeting with you and your family.
