Experienced Senior Care Companion/Assistant
I have been working with the elderly since 2009. First, I worked at a local elderly care community as a waitress in the dining room for two years. I then took on the role as a Personalized Living Assistant where I would complete daily tasks that needed to be done around their apartment or house. Examples of such services included making breakfast, lunch, or dinner, making the bed, light physical therapy, changing and washing, walking the dogs with them, or just simply sitting down and having a conversation.
Sometimes I would stay overnight in the living room while the elderly person slept to ensure that in case they fell or needed assistance in the middle of the night, I would be there to assist.
I have also been volunteering in hospitals with the elderly and terminal since 2007. Being pre-med, I have logged in over 500 hours of wheel chair assistance, feeding, blood pressure monitoring, and companionship.
