It's a joy for me to work with the elderly or the physically challenged. My work experience includes working with people in a various situations. My most recent and longest employment has been 29 years working with a couple who were very near and dear to my heart. I have experience caring for people with various health issues, including but not limited to: Congestive heart failure, overweight, atrial fibrillation, muscular degeneration, low sodium diets, oxygen usage, limited mobility, and arthritis. Assistance with personal hygiene, such as bathing, mouth and hair care, ambulation, and eventually bed bathing, and other activities of daily living. Outside of the personal care, I perform companionship, making appointments, driving and assisting to and from all doctor's appointments and activities. Medication reminder and supervision of medication, shopping, preparing 3 meals per day, with cleanup after. I would be happy to discuss other duties that I can provide. I am always willing to learn new things.
