Hello! I am Patricia. As of July 24, I am a mature, 52-year-old caregiver! I come from a family of 15! I started care-giving at a young age, age 12 to be exact! I was asked by our Christian neighbor's next door to help with their elderly parents. My job consisted of spending time with them, running to the store whenever needed, helping them out of their home when they were traveling, washing dishes and several other cleaning jobs. I maintained this job until both passed then started caring for the couple who hired me. I worked for that couple until I left for college at age 20. I graduated and started my job and in 1992, I gave my life to Christ and found several elderly people in my church that had a lot of needs. Several just needed someone to come over just to sit and talk with them. Some needed food and companionship! Some needed errands ran and medicines picked-up. Sometimes they needed a little work done around the house. There were times I had to visit them in nursing homes and at the hospital. I actually dedicated my life to helping the elderly community! Since then, I have cared for four seniors. All over 84 years of age. I have experience with seniors with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Dementia! I have transported them to doctor's appointments, to the grocery store, to the park, and wherever they wanted to go. I have done incontinence care, showers, bed baths, grooming dressing and feeding assistance. I have assisted with lifting, and transfers. I have done laundry and light house keeping. I do meal preparations and medication reminders. I have taken the online Elderly Care training and have earned over 40 certificates in Elderly Care! I not only have the practical training but I also have knowledge about what I'm doing! I coached college basketball for 23 years and love watching football and basketball. I really like it when I help the lady I am working with to exercise. I break her exercises down in a way that helps her to want to do it. She hates exercising, so I try to make it fun or funny! I like talking to seniors and making them laugh! My parrot stories always keep them interested and laughing along with other discussions. I also have the ability to know when they just don't want to talk and would rather not have discussions. I know how to adapt! I believe my desire and care for the elderly came from God! I even helped to care for my dear mother before she passed away in December of 2009. I'm sincere, trustworthy, and honest. I am a non smoker, I'm drug free, and I am a non-alcohol user as well. I have excellent references! I can do a very good job for your family!
