Artsy Senior Caregiver In Southwest Austin
I work a lot with children, but have decided to add Senior Caregiver to my resume. My experience with seniors extends to family and very close friends. I cared for my mother while she lived in my home for over a year, and I am often the person my friends call to accompany them when they visit other friends and family in the hospital or hospice. I am cheerful, a good conversationalist, and a trustworthy, caring companion. I would not accept positions that require special nursing skills, but I can fix a few meals, play games, shop, read, transport to appointments, and generally assist a senior woman who may need temporary care. I teach art classes from my home studio, so I would enjoy taking art materials to a seniors' home and sharing some creative time with one who might enjoy such activity. I am a retired public school art teacher. I have 2 daughters, two grandsons, 3 dogs, 4 cats and a pond full of fish.
