Experienced, Professional Caregiver
I have been a registered nurse for 17 years. I have extensive experience working with elderly patients including those with memory impairment and / or dementia. Older adults tend to like and trust me. Older adults in need of companion care enjoy interacting with me. I do not just "sit there" unless that's what the older adult wants. Instead we can talk or do activities important in the older adult's life. Many older adults who have memory impairment benefit from and enjoy reminiscing about their lives, for example. I actively listen and take in their stories. I can assist with medication reminders, filling pillboxes, meals, snacks, bathing, dressing, and other activities that might be needed also. Each person is unique, so I would want to develop the best plan possible with you for your loved one. In my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, and church activities.
