Experienced Caregiver Looking For Live-in Situation
I'm a middle aged female caregiver with over 30 years experience. I have cared for people who are paraplegic, had cancer, HIV+ & AIDS, auto-immune diseases, Parkinson's and are elders. I have also worked with people at the end of their lives. I'm an optimistic, upbeat person with good energy. I am reliable and honest. I'm IHSS certified, although at this time, I would prefer a private pay situation, if possible. I can easily pass background checks and I have excellent references, both professional and personal. I also have a background in massage therapy and energy work, conflict resolution, alternative and Western medicine, and nutrition. I'm now looking for a live-in situation where I can keep my two part-time clients. I am looking for a client with physical limitations rather than developmental, mental or emotional challenges. My ideal living situation would be a mother-in-law unit on the client's property or a large room with my own bathroom. My hobbies and interests are in organic gardening, music, jewelry design and manufacture, aromatherapy and herbalism. I love to read and enjoy lively conversations about books, film, science, and interesting ideas. I like people and I can get along with almost anyone! With previous and current clients my duties have include meal preparation, shopping, helping with dressing, bathing, and bathroom help, light housecleaning, laundry, light gardening and plant care, transferring from bed to commode or wheelchair and back with a slider board, and companionship activities like conversation, and just being there for folks who can't be alone at night. I am familiar with the Weston A. Price food program as well as Paleo diet. Please message me with your needs and questions. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
