Caregiver Available With Flexible Schedule
Hi, I'm Dakota. I have 3 years of experience working within homes and assisted living environments. Many of my former clients have lost their friends, spouses, and they feel they have lost their independence. My job is to help these individuals keep their spirits up as I assist them with activities of daily life. I like to shift the focus onto what people can do vs. what they can't do. In addition, I find providing social support and companionship equally important as providing help with daily living tasks. My clients feel like family and I treat them as such.
I am a former CPR/First Aide instructor and can perform basic life saving skills. I also worked as a nursing assistant/medicine manager at an assisted living facility; I am well-versed with catheters, oxygen tanks, taking vitals, etc.
