Trish S.|Oswego, IL
52 yrs old
My professional background has been in small business and retail management. When a family member was diagnosed with terminal cancer two years ago, I decided to devote all of my time and energy to caring for her. She required help with everything from bathing, toileting, dressing, meal preparation, daily exercise/physical therapy, extensive medication schedules, transportation to numerous doctor/treatment appointments, and of course, a lot of TLC and companionship.
The experience I had with her changed my perspective on life immensely and it has become most important to me to continue connecting with and helping others on a more personal level.
During that past six months I have enjoyed the experience of being caregiver and companion to a senior who has some physical limitations and memory loss issues.
I have experience in non-medical in-home care, respite care, hospice care and exercise/physical therapy assistance. I can provide services such as scheduled daily check-ins, medication reminders, light housekeeping, organizing, special projects, meal planning and preparation, transportation to appointments, errands and grocery shopping, personal shopping, managing appointment schedules, bill paying and check book balancing, and help with pet care.
