Part-Time Caregiver Available To Help With Meal Prep, Med Management, Running Errands
I have been a professional care giver for four years, but I started training long ago. Many times over years, I would set aside whatever I was doing to care for my family when they fell ill: Taking them to appointments, managing their accounts, hiring additional help, preparing their meals, etc. In addition, I also cared for a 99-year-old stranger I found hitchhiking on the side of the road. He had no family and few friends, so I eventually became his legal representative and cared for him until he passed. Because I no longer have my family, I missed the experience of caring for someone in their later years. The reward of working with this particular group of people - validating their experiences and hearing their stories - can be life-changing. My experience includes those with Alzheimer's, dementia, diabetes, and Parkinson's. Most recently I completed a year working for an elderly man who was just admitted to a senior care home, and now I hope to work with you.
