Caregiver For Seniors
Hello :) my name is Amanda. I am pursuing a career as a geriatric recreational therapist. I would love to do various activities to help patients combat solitude, loneliness, sadness, boredom, etc. I could incorporate art therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy, outdoor outings, activities for cognitive preservation, and of course resting. Resting and recharging between activities is very important. And of course, physical needs will be met first and foremost. Meal preparation, eating together, staying hydrated, medication reminders, bathing, housekeeping, cleaning, errands, appointments, exercise, and anything else that is needed. I have previous experience working at a retirement community. I loved the residents and I still keep in touch with a few. I also have experience caring for three elderly men (two with Alzheimer's and vascular dementia), and two sweet elderly women. I am CPR certified as well.
