I have a long history of working with dementia and Alzheimer's victims in a nursing home atmosphere, memory care unit background and work extremely well one-on-one in home care I'm mature, experienced, reliable, and can work independently. I assisted my last two clients with home care. With the 93-year-old gentleman, I took over managing his entire household in addition to being completely responsible for his health issues. The 91-year-old lady lived with her daughter, but I was still completely responsible for her well being. With both clients I needed to recognize health issues, schedule doctor appointments, escort to appointments, took over med management, lite meals, laundry, personal care and bathing, escorted on outings. I'm a perfect companion to the age advanced as I relate to their generation which is important in everyday conversations. I have an excellent driving record and excellent transportation. Prior to taking on one-on-one care, I spent 3 years as an Activity Director in an independent living and assisted living facility planning activities, scheduling outings and escorting 24 residents on day trips.
