Dental Hygienist By Day, Your Senior's Caregiver By Night? Senior Companionship, Meals, Daily Tasks.
I have been a dental hygienist for almost 13 years, and a mom for over 10 years. But before that, I worked for several years in college providing care for 8 seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia in an assisted living facility on a nightly basis. I provided help with meals, bathing, personal care, meds, and companionship. As life slowed down and dental hygiene became mundane, I started to get back to working with seniors. I became a PCA and cared for a senior client for the last 3 years, cooking meals (my favorite!), light housekeeping, personal cares, and eventually end of life comfort care. I am responsible, CPR certified with basic life support training, and looking to develop another bond with a special senior citizen in need of evening care or companionship. I am available a couple evenings a week after my regular job, and every other weekend. Let me know if I can be of help!
