Part-time Care Giver Available

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tim and I am extremely impressed with the care giving services that Care.Com extends to our elderly. Their special services allow our dear elderly to live out the autumn of their years in the peace and the comfort and the security of their own homes, while they are still able to maintain that very important sense of independence. EXPERIENCE: From the time I was in grade school and up through my college years, my grandparents on my father's side lived with us until they passed away. As they grew older and developed health issues, I was able to help take care of my grandparents while my parents were busy with their careers in the work field. I helped out by preparing meals, laying out their daily prescribed medications, doing housework, providing transportation, and helping out with the grocery shopping and running various errands. In the fall of 1991, my elderly father was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. And my mother had experienced six spinal compression fractures over a period of several years due to her acute osteoporosis condition. At that time, I moved into their home in Broomfield, Colorado to help take care of my parents and to help provide for them a much better quality of life by preparing meals, doing the housekeeping, providing transportation, laying out all of their medications, and by handling all of the grocery shopping and various errands. My father passed away on July the 3rd of 1994. And my mother passed away in my arms at Avista Hospital on December 24th of 2000. Taking care of both of my parents to the end of their final days was without doubt the greatest and the most rewarding experience of my entire life. In August of 1991, I worked as a staff member at the Edge Athletic Club here in Broomfield, Co. I have a good knowledge of healthy diets and healthy eating habits, exercise programs for the elderly, plus knowledge of medications, their strengths and dosages. During the late 1990s, we were the first health club in Colorado to incorporate the Silver Sneaker's senior health/fitness program into our club. I also had the opportunity to assist in the Senior s weekly fitness classes. This gave me the wonderful opportunity to interface with all of our 350 elderly Silver Sneaker members. And this was another amazing experience for me to directly help and work with this very special age group, plus develop a special and bonding friendship with them. With my many years of experience of serving our elderly in a wide variety of care giving services, I feel that I am qualified and capable to help contribute to high quality of care of helping and taking care of our dear elderly. I am confident that my former experiences will also be a big asset to me in regards to any Companion Care and Visitation positions. I sincerely thank you for taking the time to read my resume. And I do wish that after reviewing my application, you will allow me the opportunity to meet with you for a personal interview. Sincerely yours, Tim
