Caregiver For Senior Adults
I am not currently able to work with seniors. Sorry!
I have worked in a facility for adults with memory impairment and also in an apartment building for dual-diagnosed, previously homeless adults. In both placements I provided individual and group counseling as well as case management, milieu and crisis interventions with adults 65 and over with Alzheimer's, vascular dementia, hydrocephalus, Korsakoff's, substance abuse disorders and severe mental health diagnoses. have assisted in many activities of daily living, including feeding, grooming, dressing, using the restroom and bathing, going to the doctor, shopping, etc. I have provided interventions informed by training in existential, humanistic, process, psycho-dynamic, cognitive behavioral, motivational interviewing and harm reduction methods. I have also used my dog in therapy with seniors with memory impairments, which was very successful, rewarding and fun. I love working with seniors!
