About Stephanie

I'm UPDATING my profile today, 6-3-2019, to reflect an upcoming change in my life: I plan to move in with my 86 year old Dad, next month. He loves to drive (he has 4 cars!) but his doctor has suggested that he not drive alone to unfamiliar places. (He has memory loss and gets turned around easily.) What I love about the Carelinx platform is that it allows me to offer my services as a professional caregiver to families that need my help while being able to care for my family members, too. I have over 17 years of experience as a caregiver and a sympathetic ear, especially when it comes to caring for elderly parents! I can understand how you feel because I'm going through and have gone through many of the same things. (My Mom passed away in May 2014.) Feel free to contact me if you need a caregiver for 2-3 days per week, for 4-6 hour afternoon shifts or if you just need to talk to someone willing to listen. May the Lord bless and comfort you through these challenging times. - Stephanie

Being self-employed as a writer/publisher makes it easy for me to make my client's schedule my priority. As an entrepreneur, I know the value of being dependable, good communication skills, and a great attitude. I care for my clients the same way I would want someone to care for me or my loved ones.

Personal Care Assistant + Certified Dementia Caregiver (2015-2017)

Jun 2014 - Feb 2017
Home Helpers of Greater Milwaukee
Really enjoyed my last long term assignment, of just over a year, serving a couple in their 80's in which the wife had dementia and the husband was recovering from a stroke. The wife's need helped motivate me to successfully complete a dementia caregiver's course. I worked the overnight shift as part of a team of caregivers providing 24/7 care. My duties included med reminders, monitoring the clients' health and well being, meal preparation, light housekeeping, and other tasks, as needed. Effective communication with their 5 adult children and the other 5 members of the caregiving team was also an important part of this assignment. I traveled with the family several times to provide care while they were vacationing.

I'm very trustworthy, honest and kind person. I became a caregiver because my grandmother suffer health issues that couldn't not be met in a traditional senior living facility so I took several class to learn all the cares she needed at the time. However one thing that I enjoy the most as a caregiver is smiles and laughter from a patient that's comfortable with the way I care for them. One thing that I person achievement that I'm proud of is giving back to others that needs help.

I became a Caregiver because I hope to be a nurse in the future. I thought becoming a Caregiver was also a good fit for me, is something I can do well, and is a great way for me to help others live well. I have been a Caregiver for over 4 years now in multiple settings and am proud of that. In my time being a Caregiver thus far, I most like the fact that it is so rewarding and that I truly can make a difference in the lives of the people I care for. Not only am I touching their lives, but they touch mine as well, as cliche as it sounds it is 100% true, and that is what I truly love about being a Caregiver. I am an honest, trustworthy, and caring person who strives to do her best and serve others to the best of my ability with strong values of integrity and respect. A core belief I have and incorporate into my life is to always treat others as I would want to be treated, which is how I approach caring for patients I come across as well. I believe every person is deserving of the best possible care and I enjoy being a person to assist in that. I am very passionate about this and intend to continue to make my life and career of it.
