Friendly Reliable Senior Caregiver

Hi there! First off let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Valerie, I am 25 years old and recently bought a house in Pingree Grove. I am the mommy of two Miniature Dachshunds, Millie and Mortimer and I am happily engaged to the love of my life! For most of my life I have known that I would go into the care field. I love the feeling you get knowing that you are making a positive impact on someone's life and that you are helping that person live their life to the fullest. I have had a lot of experience working with seniors with and without disabilities. Growing up my great grandmother had Alzheimer's, and often I would help my grandmother take care of her until she later died. As a teenager my grandmother developed Dementia and moved into our home. Being that I had a close and special bond with my grandmother I naturally became one of her caregivers. It was one of the best experiences of my life because I felt like I was able to repay her for all of the kindness and love that she had given me as a child. The experiences of helping with the care of both my great grandmother and grandmother made me really realize that this was a field that I was interested in and wanted as a career. For the past three years I have been working with non profit organizations in Cila homes as a Direct Support Professional, providing care for between 4 and six adults with various physical and mental disabilities. Ages ranging from 25 to 75. I absolutely loved this job and would still be doing it if the funding wasn't cut from the organization. That is why I am looking into privatized senior care. When I work with my clients it is so important that they feel comfortable and that I create a lasting bond with them. I want them to know that I will always treat them with the kindness and respect that they deserve. I would never do or say anything that I wouldn't want said to myself or my own grandmother. I believe that some of my great strengths as a caregiver and as a person in general is my patience and empathy. My goal is find a client that I can create a bond with and consider them as a extension of my own family!
