This is just a small bio of my experience in the working field as a dementia and Alzheimer caregiver, although my personal experience dates back to when I was just an 8-year-old child who used to help out an elderly neighbor who suffered from dementia, and epileptic seizures. She taught me to crochet, and in return I kept her company. My professional experience is this; Experienced Alzheimer's and dementia caregiver. Provided non-medical in-home care and assistance for seniors and disabled adults. Current certification in First Aid. Closely worked with and monitored patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Provided cooking, cleaning, and companionship. Full incontinence care, showering, feeding meals, handing out medications, and charting. Implemented physical activities for movement, and mental stimulation. Demonstrated unwavering patience and understanding; diffused extremely anxious and traumatic situations for confused patients.

Jacqueline performs her work beyond expectation. We hired her to take care of my aging father, who has since passed away. We were so impressed with her performance that we became reliant on progressively higher levels of responsibility: med re-fills, doctor's visits, hospital stays, social activities. She is very good at her tasks, reliable, punctual, takes charge of the situation. She has excellent people skills, polite, kind, communicative, and respectful. She cares.

Kind. Compassionate Woman Looking To Help Out With Some Companionship

Avg response < 5 hrs
Looking for work as a caregiver. My previous experience was for a 96-year-old. I started working for her on a part-time basis at the age of 91. I helped her with her physical therapy, taking her to functions, weekly hair appointments and ran errands for her. My goal was to keep her active and happy. She had a terrific disposition and everyone around her, including myself loved her very much. As her age progressed, and her ailments increased, my hours increased. I was with until the end on January 29, 2014. I promised her I wasn't going anywhere. She became such an important part of my life and I to hers. She taught me so many things. I am now looking to give someone else the quality of life they deserve. I have also added to my bio some skilled care giving. I started working for an agency, Geriatric care consultants. My boss saw my abilities and I started working for a couple. The man had prostate cancer and I was a part of a team of five caregivers that cared for him until he peacefully passed away in his home next to his wife. We made it so there was no need for him to go into the hospital for Hospice. I would work 12 hour shifts. Bathe him, dress him and transport him until the cancer took over and he was not able to walk anymore. His wife has Parkinson's and moderate dementia. After her husband passed their daughter moved her out of state to be closer to her.
