Alzheimer / Dementia Caregiver
My best friend was my Grandfather. He managed a Senior-only, mobile home park, so I grew up around the elderly and I loved it. I guess it was only natural I turn to caregiving as a career choice. I have cared for patients with dementia and understand their needs. I have experience with; mobility issues, incontinence, PT, Lifts, special needs - nutrition, organizing meds etc. But what I love MOST is spending time with the elderly. I love their stories (no mater how many times they tell them) I enjoy keeping them as stimulated as possible. I feel it is important to live life to the fullest in our latter years. Life does not stop just because we grow old or develop health issues! Please check my references. And I have no problem at all with background, or even credit checks. I have worked on and off as a caregiver over the last 25 years. I am 57 years old. I am also an amazing housekeeper, organizer and a good cook. I have plenty of references!

CARES Dementia Specialist
Hi, my name is Cathleen. I am 55. I am a Certified CARES Dementia Specialist. I have my HHA cert. I treat all my families with respect and give their loved ones back the dignity that Alzheimer s has taken away. I am a very caring person and would love to help care for your loved one. My approach is to care for each person with respect, kindness and understanding - everyone has a past, present and future. My goal is to provide comfort, safety, companionship, and good health for your loved one who needs help with Daily Living Activities. I am available 3 days a week. Recently I cared for a 78-year-old woman and her 81-year-old brother who live together. She passed away. I ran their household, taking care of every aspect of their daily living. I also oversaw the other caregivers as she has 24/7 care. She had Alzheimer's and required special care. I provide that. I have also created a daily activity routine for her to keep her stimulated. Why keep your loved one home to sit and watch TV,

For the past 3 years I have helped care for a 90-year-old man suffering from dementia. Duties I have preformed include bathing, getting dressed, feeding, administering medication, and taking him out to keep him busy. Although I am only 22, I love spending time with older people hearing about their early life and helping them through their later one. I also have a Grandmother suffering from Alzheimer's, so I understand the struggle for families and the patience it requires.

$15-20/hr • 10 yrs exp • 50 yrs old
Dementia & Alzheimer Special Care
The last client that I took care of in 2008 basically died peacefully in my hands. All of her medical doctors, including specialist gave her an estimate of one year to live. However, the way that I cared for her prolonged her life to eight more years. She died a few days after Christmas in 2016. She was 92 years young. I never considered her as a client--she was family. She could have been my grandma. I strongly believe our elderly population should be respected and treated with dignity at all times. I have dedicated my life to serving them in that capacity. For the past 25 years, I have provided private care to seniors who are living with dementia, Alzheimer's, disabilities, and other chronic medical conditions. If you are seeking live-in care, I have a reliable staff that can provide 24 hour care without having to live-in. I can also provide a copy of my level 2 background check to you if you decide I am the best match for your loved one.

Experienced Alzheimer/Dementia Caregiver
I enjoy working with the elderly to enable them to still have their independence, dignity, and self confidence. I enjoy keeping them active as this is an important factor for them in their every day living, (ADL's). My BA studies have included Alzheimer's, dementia, and hospice care, a MS in Social Policy and Aging, Manning certificate, and Medical Assistant certification. I have worked in private homes for the elderly for over 25 years focusing with clients to age in place with safety in their own environment. I feel both cognitively and physically aging in your own home is important and stimulating to the individual as well as families/loved ones. However, my duties with all of my work ethics have included live-in care, bathing/dressing, cuing /direction, safety, mobility/exercise/walking inside or outside, housekeeping, meal preparation, medication management companionship (reading, puzzles, and/or movies, listening), Adult Day Care, and all aspects of elderly care.
Shari B.|Williamsburg, VA
$15-25/hr • 7 yrs exp • 52 yrs old
I have been providing in-home companion care and task-specific assistance for 7 years. Most recent client was a 78yo female with advanced Alzheimer/Vascular Dementia. I provided daily companionship, prepared meals, managed meds, and kept her on task for activities. We were good friends. My previous position was with an 83yo female with advanced Alzheimer's who required constant supervision. Her care started as strictly companion/supervisory but, progressed to the state of providing total care, working alongside hospice. I worked with her family, doctor and home health agency to coordinate care. My care ended when she passed away. Because of expert care, she was able to remain at home until the end. My education includes being a certified pharmacy technician, certified nursing assistant and emergency medical technician. I worked many years in these medical professions. I highly value treating the elderly with compassion, respect, dignity and patience.
