Experienced in caregiving with a strong command of compassion and love for assisting others.
I have been working in the care sector for 17 years. I have experience of working in care homes as well as in service users own homes. I am experienced in dementia & palliative care. I have assisted service users with bathing, oral hygiene, grooming, getting in and out of bed, standing and walking. Planned, prepared and served meals and snacks according to prescribed diets. Administered simple range of motion exercises. Followed safe lifting techniques and individual service user lifting instructions.
Scheduled and accompanied clients to medical appointments. Performed household tasks such as laundry, dusting, washing dishes and vacuuming. Recognized and reported abnormalities and/or changes in service users health status to family. Trained in basic first aid. I am empathetic, compassionate, calm and understanding. I have a caring nature. I think it's essential to have this quality in this line of work.
In my spare time I attend the local church, enjoy walks with my daughter and our dog, reading and supporting families in the community.
