I have just completed a two year private care position with a 90+ senior female, who passed away mid August of 2015. Very sad loss for myself and other care staff as I had gotten very close to her.! I began as a companion, warming meals and dispensing meds, and as health issues progressed (cancer & COPD), took her to medical appts., bathed and did her hair, laundry, grocery shopped for her, cared for her garden and cooked many meals, in addition to walking her in her neighborhood. Over the last year spent many over nights with her, waking to care for her needs, administer inhaler or oxygen, blood pressure, etc.
At the same time part-time facilitated art with developmentally disabled adults in a day program 20 hours a week.
I have experience as a hospital and care home nurse aide, home-care giver, I have worked with Alzheimer's/Dementia patients at a Senior Care Program as Outreach Education Coordinator/Artist in Residence, facilitating a Memories in the Making Art program. Van driver to pick up seniors, and deliver home at days end. Drove to field trips, served lunches, played Bingo, games etc.
