I'm always smiling and cracking jokes. I come to my job put together, and open my arms to any kind of challenge. With some residents, we dance to the bathroom. With others, we have a light switch that is broken that I need them to come help me with. Stories and communication are my best friend. I love working with dementia patients, but I am also very wonderful with more independent elderly as well. I am physically strong, and can lift over 50lbs. I can cook high protein health conscious meals and I will ALWAYS push hydration. I can handle some combative behavior, please be honest with me. I firmly believe that I take care of my clients just as I would myself such as including proper body hygiene care and oral care. I am able to help with feeding. I am CPR/First Aid trained and certified. I am fire safety certified. I am mental health, and dementia certified. I have an operating legally owned and insured vehicle. I would prefer to stay local, but would be willing to negotiate pay if services are needed from a further distance. When I first became a caregiver I never thought I would ever become one. I learned so much, so quickly, and so eagerly. By the time I was crosstrained with assisted independent elderly, and dementia/mental health and behavior challenged elderly, it began to feel effortless and empowering. I am so passionate for, and about the people I care for. Dementia isn't always patient, and dementia isn't always kind. It's challenging work but I will show up on time, and your loved one is my number one priority with a smile. I consider myself a guest in every clients home, therefore I reciprocate that belief into the quality of care and my positive behavior. I am a great listener, and I will validate your loved one in whatever they believe as long as it doesn't involve harming themselves, or others.
