I believe I may be the conscientious and compassionate caretaker you are searching for! I'm seeking a regularly scheduled caretaker position to support me while I pursue my credential as a Special Education Teacher. I am prompt, reliable and responsible.
I am a caretaker for people with disabilities with over a decade of professional experience.
In Massachusetts, I worked as a live-in caretaker for a man with a neurological disorder called Ataxia; I assisted him with wheelchair transfers and hygiene assistance / personal care. I also worked as a residential counselor for 5 years with Villa Esperanza Services in Pasadena, CA. It was a pleasure to serve individuals with physical disabilities, mobility, hearing and visual impairment, autism, dementia, developmental disabilities and, at times, some very challenging behavior. I have been trained to respond to medical emergencies and to assist individuals with Medical Self-Administration. I was also responsible for supporting my clients in making healthy decisions in diet and exercise as suggested by health care providers. I also served as an independent living skills instructor; I provided assistance and guidance with shopping, chores, and money management. I am gentle, patient, & caring.
I love sharing stories, card games, board games, cinema , walking in the park and reading fiction to my clients! I am an excellent cook and I am happy to help with household chores. Being a caretaker is an incredible joy for me and I consider it an honor to serve my elders. My elder family members have received the best of care in their golden years and my family and I will be forever grateful for our quality care providers! It is inspiring to see the positive effect our work has on the whole family! I can provide excellent references from the families of my clients.
Health and safety are my top priorities! I have an excellent driving record and I am CPR & First Aid certified by the American Red Cross. I am very patient and I have excellent communication skills. Please call or email me to receive my full professional resume, references, and letters of recommendation.
Thank you for your consideration.
