Biomedical Student Seeking Caregiving/Companion Position
I am a student at Salem State pursuing a biomedical degree and hopefully transferring into the nursing program in the spring! In September, I will also be starting a Phlebotomy and EKG Tech course to become certified. For the past 3 years, I have taken care of my elderly grandmother who is diabetic and has severe dementia. This includes preparing meals (I am a great cook), giving daily insulin shots, administering morning/afternoon/evening medications, changing bed sheets, doing laundry, and overall providing my grandmother with a clean and comfortable home. I also got my grandmother a Chihuahua and trained him to be a companion for her. When I was 16, I worked at a nursing home for a few years as a mealtime assistant as well which helped me grow an appreciation for the elderly at a young age. Aside from that, I am also great with taking care of children. I was certified in the babysitting course and have babysat for 9 years now. I was an after-school nanny to a 3 and 6-year-old for 2 years. I have plenty of experience in taking care of both the elderly and children. I'm kindhearted, reliable, knowledgeable, and responsible. I am also Choke Safe certified.
