Personal Care Attendant/ Senior Sitter/ Pet Sitter/ Baby(child)Sitter. Looking For Part-time.
I worked as a personal caregiver to a 60-year-old disabled woman. I assisted with bathing, cooking, cleaning, laundry and running errands as well as accompanying to appointments. I worked there for five years, until the patient passed away. The patient had many skin problems, urinary/kidney condition, diabetes and severe obesity. I am certified in CPR and first aid through the American Red Cross. I also cared for my husband at home who had multiple myeloma until he passed away in 2014, and my mother, who had dementia and pancreatic cancer, at home, until her death in 2013. I currently do home care for two elderly clients, one of which has heart disease and the other has cancer and his wife has Parkinson's disease. I really enjoy working with elderly patients and doing what I can to help them remain in their homes as long as possible, so that they can enjoy a better quality of life with dignity.
On a personal note, I am an avid reader and I enjoy sewing, crocheting and knitting.
