About Amanda

I always disliked these about me sections, do I tell the truth and come off arrogant or do you ignore it and seem dull? I will tell you what references and former employers have said about me in letter of recommendations or what they would likely say about me. I have a heart so big and am so caring, if someone cuts me off, and everyone else is upset yelling at them, I'm the one saying" they may be in a hurry" or " maybe they didn't see us. I have always, since I was a child, been focused, dependable and caring. I like to think I provide better services then most because your loved one is not a job, a client, a patient, they are someone's mother, father, sister, brother, uncle, friend and once I am to brought into care for them they are my family. I have went out in the middle of the night to check on my new found loved ones, I check on them on my days off. I am their loved ones eyes and ears when they aren't able to be there and I do for them the same as I would want for my loved ones. I have glowing recommendations from local Doctors, and many local families that I have worked for in the past, that I have continued to stay close with, many being considered my new families. I have 5 years medically training from working with Dementia patients to ALS. I have experience with catheters, peritoneal cathethers, feeding tubes, Loved ones needing physical therapy or just companionship. I will float on the fact I am a great cook, my parents owned restaurants growing up, so I grew up cooking: I am very dependable only missing one day of work at my last employers in 3 years, and it was because of bad weather and their road was closed due to a bad car wreck. I also work with a wonderful group of qualified ladies so together we can accommodate any hours needed and cover for one another if one ever has an emergency, so dependability is guaranteed. If your loved one is in need of someone like me feel free to give me a call!

Experience & Education

Health care provider trained in and experienced in medically caring for patients in their homes.

Mar 2006 - Present
Private In home care
I have spent years working for care agencies when I just couldn't put up with there ways any longer I started working privately. I feel when I take on a patient, I am dedicated to them and all their needs: Big companies aren't concerned with their patients/ clients they are concerned with money: I would have regular people looking forward to me coming, we had plans and last minute they yank you and out you somewhere else because where you was going will be okay without someone tonight. I didn't like not being able to assist them medically or with medicines, I am there to help and any help they need I intend to do. I give my mom 100 to my patients, I have remained closed friends with every family I have ever worked for. I have worked with/ around with Hospice, visiting patients I was working for and they always, very eagerly, highly recommend me: I work with an experienced team of qualified ladies to ensure dependability and comfort of knowing if more then 1 caregiver is needed we all communicate and work together. We offer the care your loved ones need, the peace of mind you need, and an extended family you can trust.
