Nurturing And Empathetic Caregiver
In addition to my extensive experience working with children, I have experience working with seniors in need of care. While in middle/high school I was required to perform service hours for various sports and other extracurricular clubs. My passion who enriching the lives of others was fulfilled when I began volunteering at a residential home from adult-geriatric persons with developmental disabilities and the Illinois Veterans home working with WWII and Korean war era veterans. Paid employment began when I started caring for my younger sister's employer's elderly mother. While her daughter, her primary caregiver, was working or not available I came to the home and assisted Jean with bathing, cooking, laundry, medication management, and most importantly companionship. As well as formal employment, I was part of the primary care giving team who cared for both my grandmothers who were in at-home hospice until their passing.
