I love being a caregiver because I get to meet different people, create friendships and take care of seniors in need. It is a very rewarding job for me. Other things I like to do are going to garage sales, estate sales, auctions and spending time with family. I have worked in clients' homes and in a nursing home, as a caregiver. I have experience working with seniors who have Dementia and Alzheimer's. My role as a caregiver is to provide companionship, assist with activities of daily living (ADL's), prepare meals, help with eating or feeding, if needed, perform light housekeeping duties and laundry, give medication reminders or assist with medication, assist with incontinence or using the bathroom, assist with walking and exercises, feed and clean up after pets (cats or dogs), document any changes in client and notify the family with any concerns. I also provide transportation to and from doctor appt's, run errands, accompany to social events and take out to meals and/or treats.
