Experienced Home Health Aide/Caregiver
My name is Trish, I'm 27 and I have a 6-year-old son!
I have 12+ years experience in caring for the elderly. My love for caregiving began when I was young, caring for my own grandparents. Caring for them, quickly made me realize my passion for this kind of work.
I've since cared for many elderly patients, in their home and in facilities. I enjoy building a relationship with my clients, they truly become like family. I believe it benefits the patient to have continuous care from one provider, vs many different caregivers. It allows everyone involved to become comfortable, trusted and build a routine.
I have experience in caring for many different health/mental ailments. Some of the ailments within my experience are dementia, stroke paralysis, brain injuries, liver/kidney failure and cancer. I've also assisted in hospice care. Although I've cared for patients with severe health problems, I can simply provide companionship.
