Hello! I have 23 years of experience in helping others, as the owner/operator of my own business, providing residential cleaning and caregiver services. All of my customers were older and required help in a variety of ways. I have experience helping with household management-including finances and bills, correspondence, and organizing paperwork. I sometimes provided post surgical or recovery care after hospital release. Other responsibilities included cleaning, laundry, gardening, shopping, cooking, chauffeuring, running errands and traveling with customers. Through my understanding, kindness, patience, respect and hard work, my clients were able to stay in their homes longer and many lifelong friendships were formed.
In the past, I have helped four different senior clients through the difficult and stressful transition period of getting ready to move. Whether it was to go out of state, or into a care facility-all required downsizing and careful planning and reorganization. Several times homes were cleaned out and readied for re-sale.
Additional note: At this time I am currently available for occasional help and senior care also-evenings and weekends. Everyone enjoys a little "break" now and then to get away from the daily routine. Happy to take jobs on an "on-call" basis, subject to my availability. Temporary overnight and weekend care jobs may also be possible. I am totally competent and ready to help out and provide companionship and care for your senior when you take either a planned trip or are unexpectedly called away. I am available and open to all possibilities.
*With limited exceptions (such as casual babysitters) virtually all caregiver jobs are subject to federal, state and local (where applicable) minimum wage laws. Families are responsible as household employers for complying with all applicable minimum wage laws, plus payroll, tax and other labor laws regarding employment of care providers.
