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!

Experienced Caregiver Specializing In Dementia
Caring for seniors is very close to my heart. About five years ago, I left my career in wildlife conservation and moved back home to Michigan to care for my wonderful mother, who has advanced Alzheimer's. Although she is currently living in a memory care facility, I visit her every day and have actively advocated for her and been involved in all aspects of her care. Through this personal journey, I became passionate about giving other seniors (particularly dementia sufferers) the high quality of care and advocacy that I've given to my mother. I earned a certificate in Dementia Care from School craft College, and for the past four years, I have worked professionally as a caregiver for seniors with dementia, Parkinson's, cancer, and stroke. In general, I am available to work Mondays through Fridays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

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.
