Part Time Morning Caregiver/Companion
I have mostly done senior care, having taken care of my mother-in-law, who had Alzheimer's and lived with us for 16 months. I also spend 2 1/2 hours three afternoons a week with a delightful 93-year-old woman. We take walks, play Scrabble, chat, and I transport her to the wellness center for her exercises a couple times each week. I also help my 90-year-old mother, who lives in a retirement community, one afternoon a week. It is this type of work that I have grown to love, and I'm looking for some morning hours helping someone else.
I have lived a very interesting life, due to my father's job, which took us overseas for 3-4 years at a time. I can have a conversation with anyone and enjoy hearing about the lives that other people have led. I have patience, ingenuity, a great sense of humor, and I love pets.
I have a daughter who is married and a son who will be married in June of 2016. Hopefully grandchildren will be in the picture within the next year :).
Please get in touch with me if you have any needs for companionship, running errands, taking you to doctor appointments, or help with light cooking and/or housekeeping. I look forward to hearing from you!
