Full And/Or Part-Time Caregiver Available Immediately
My name is Joshua. I'm 27 years old, and I've been a caregiver for those in need for a little over five years now. I'm looking for full-time work, though I'm also willing to accept part-time work, or respite care for another caregiver. I only ask that I'm given at least 24 hours of notice in advance. I got my start in the care giving field back in late 2009 through a private home care agency. I worked with them for a little over two years taking care of people in their own homes, and in a nursing home setting. From late 2010 until January 2014, I provided semi live in aid to a gentleman bound to an electric wheelchair, who can be reached via my reference information. I also have experience with Alzheimer's disease/Dementia patients, and patients with limited mobility (e. g. those who may be confined to a wheelchair, bedridden, amputees, and the like). I also do light housekeeping, laundry services, preparing meals, playing games (board games, card games, memory games, etc.), medication reminders/setting up pill boxes, checking basic vitals, providing transportation to/from doctor's appointments/groceries/other errands, and providing general companionship. I'm CPR/First Aid/AED certified, and WMD/Terrorism Awareness for Emergency Responders certified.
