Responds within a few hours
I am a CNA who has provided care to the elderly for over 10 plus years. I have worked with all stages of dementia as well as with those who have had medical conditions ranging from diabetes to neurological conditions. I can assist with post-operative wound care as necessary, hygiene, meal preparation, transportation to and from doctor visits, physical therapy, chemo or other treatments. I am comfortable with medication management (filling pill boxes), reminders and assistance with monitoring pills or liquids as preferred by the family (sometimes a pill is missed or dropped by the elder person), as well as handle meal preparation and grocery shopping. I am caring and compassionate and truly enjoy spending time and working with elders, whether they like to get outdoors and be on-the-go, or if they prefer staying close to home and just sharing companionship. I have experience with accompanying seniors to different events and activities, taking them out shopping or to visit other family member, hair appointments, driving them to dental or doctor appointments, or just out for a drive to change the scenery as desired. I can also be an extra pair of eyes or ears for an individual who might otherwise miss something, assist with filling out tedious forms at doctor visits and so forth. I was close to all of my grandparents as a young girl and I always looked forward to visiting with them, spending time together chatting, sharing meals, assisting them with shopping or whatever they might need whenever possible. I really do enjoy working with the elders. I feel they are rich with knowledge and wisdom, and I love to listen to their life stories and hear of their varied life experiences. I am also bonded. Also, I'm very good with pets, and many of the seniors I have had the good fortune to work with have had pets of all sizes and breeds. I have no problem with monitoring their food and water, as well as letting them in or out and taking brief walks.
