OT Graduate Student Looking For Part-Time Care-giving Work- Companionship, Housekeeping, Meal Prep
As a current occupational therapy (OT) student at Tufts University I have had various experiences with senior care. I have recently worked as a caregiver for an elderly woman with dementia and as a group activity organizer for the Medford Council on Aging. As an undergraduate I volunteered in a retirement home as an activities coordinator, as well as in a skilled nursing facility as an OT aide. And finally, as a granddaughter, I assisted my mother in taking care of my wonderful grandparents, both of whom were diagnosed with dementia. I feel very comfortable around the elderly and feel that I can be not only a caregiver but a friend to them!
I am a voracious reader from Philadelphia who loves to travel, cook, and explore the city of Boston! I am proficient in Italian (though admittedly a little rusty), CPR certified, and passionate about my future as an occupational therapist within the realm of geriatrics.
