I am seeking employment as a professional caregiver because I have tremendous experience in the care of the elderly including dementia patients. I was the full-time live-in caregiver and advocate to both of my grandparents for the last nine years and for just my grandfather the last two and a half.
My grandmother had a pacemaker, as well as diabetes and congestive heart failure. I aided with all aspects of her daily care including mobility assistance, transportation, medication management and administering, bathing, personal care, shopping and cooking. My grandmother had a no sugar and no sodium diet.
My grandfather had a history of strokes and seizures and his care included a foley catheter, g-tube, CHF, hypothermia, dementia, to name a few. I assisted him with all his daily activities including incontinence, bathroom assist, mobility assistance, transferring, medication management and administering via feeding tube, advocating in all health and financial matters.
I also maintained the household including cleaning, shopping and financial aspects of their 3 bedroom home of 60 years. I also did all the book keeping for the family business of 47 years once my grandmother could no longer do.
