Experienced, Caring, Compassionate Elder Care Companion And Caregiver - Elder Care Specialist
Hello. My name is Susan. I am very interested in speaking with you if you are looking for a part time (or almost full time) elder care companion, home health caregiver, driver or general helper assistant! I have extensive experience, reliable transportation, and excellent references along with my Bachelor's Degree in Social Work, CNA Training, First Aid, AHA Certification and CORI Qualified.
Working with the elderly is my passion. I was blessed to have grown up knowing all my grandparents and I shared many wonderful and heartfelt experiences with them through the years. They taught me so much about living life and aging.
I am currently working part time in this capacity and am interested in finding another position(s) to supplement my schedule. Some of my most recent experience includes working with a 96 year "young" woman (who was legally blind from macular degeneration) during the last year of her life as both her companion/friend and home health caregiver. I'm also caring for an 86-year-old woman who was suffering from dementia, and currently a companion/friend to a 96-year-old woman who is suffering from the latter stages of Alzheimer's.
I am a very caring, compassionate, responsible, mature person. I know how important it is to have a supportive friend who listens and who strives to provide the best care while always being sensitive to each person's individual needs, interests, sense of dignity, independence and quality of life. I would be happy to answer any additional questions you may have. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience at either number listed. I look forward to hearing back from you soon to discuss your individual or family needs.
