Part -Time Caregiver/Assistant/ Companion
I have ample experience caring for adults who have required assistance for a variety of reasons: physical disabilities that required a wheelchair, developmental disabilities that required assistive devices and a particular kind of training, and mental fragility which required my steady hand. All required kindness, sincerity and patience- qualities that I had before doing this work, yet watched expand greatly as I worked with and connected to those I supported. While it has been a few years since working in this capacity, I have continued to work with the public: with adults and with children, honing and using my interpersonal skills and connecting with others. Additional assets include: general domestic abilities (cooking, laundry etc), excellent managerial skills, own transportation, dedicated and personable. I am available for consistent part-time assistance or temporary assignments. I have a hearing loss and prefer to communicate via e-mail but do use the phone and can be contacted in that manner if you prefer. If you believe that there's compatibility between what you seek and the qualities and assistance I can offer, please contact me. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
