NOTICE: LOCATION IN SONOMA, NOT SANTA CRUZ. WORKING ON HAVING THIS UPDATED.
I worked as a caregiver/assisted living for a woman with Dementia and Aphasia. Tasks included pericare, dressing, washing, driving, preparing meals, assisted walking and eating. My grandmother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer my senior year. She moved in with us eventually, and seeing how hard life was for her made me passionate about helping the elderly. I feel I have a lot of vitality, energy and help to offer in exchange for genuine companionship and advice.
Following this experience, I partook in three babysitting and two nanny shifts through this platform. I have worked with children throughout college. I am comfortable around children and appreciate their enthusiasm, passion, and even chaos. I am applying for my teaching credentials and hope to eventually become a teacher.
