Experienced Caregiver Searching For Long-term Position
My name is Amanda and I am searching for a compatible client who is needing care for full-time hours.
I have 7 years of experience in the care giving field. My first in-home position was caring for a sweet Alzheimer's client right out of high school.
I have worked for 3 different agencies and also worked privately. In those years, I've worked with Alzheimer/dementia clients, ALS clients, MS clients, paraplegic/quadriplegic clients and many more.
I have experience with catheters (condom & IC), blood pressure, blood sugar, Hoyer lift, wheelchairs, transfers using gait belt, administering meds, bed baths, pericare/wound care, range of motion (PT & OT exercises), meal prep, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, and running errands.
I feel very strongly about the lack of compassion in the care giving field these days. Care giving has been just another job for me.
I treat my clients with compassion, respect, patience and understanding exactly how I would want to be treated. Being 25 years old, my personality is very mature.
I'm a very kind, outgoing person who is very easily able to find a connection with almost anyone. I hope this website helps connect me with my perfect client! :)
By the end of November, I will have completed my certification classes for the year in CPR, First-Aid, and Med-Level 1 (distributing medications).
