Private, Personal Home Care Giver For The Elderly
Hello all! My name is Shannon! I started caring for the elderly while I worked in a skilled nursing facility doing activities with the residents on a daily basis- keeping them entertained with bingo, cards, trivia, fun facts for the day, exercise, singing, dancing and so much more. I realized how much I enjoyed working with geriatrics so I continued working with my own grandparents- doing 24 hour care including bathing, cooking, driving to outings, cleaning, laundry, etc. I decided after that to go back to school to get certified as a CNA- certified nursing assistant. Since then I have been doing private home care and am currently working with an 86-year-old woman. I have very flexible hours and can do some evenings/nights as well. I am CNA certified, CPR certified, hoyer lift trained, and have dementia training. I m a patient, compassionate, loving person and will take care of your loved one as if they were my own. I like them to have fun and feel as independent as possible!
