Exceptional Part-time Care-giver

(3)
I was my mother's primary caregiver for 4 years. She had advanced Alzheimer's Disease and needed day and night monitoring and care. I am experienced in the full bathing process, dressing, hair dressing, fixing meals, and aiding in eating. I also was her medication manager and was responsible for giving her the proper medications at the proper time, calling in for med refills, making doctor's appointments and taking her to these appointments. I was responsible for housekeeping, laundry and bed changing. I also took care of her dog as far as veterinary appointments, feeding, outside tasks and bathing. I am familiar with in-home Hospice care as well as Hospice House residential care. I have, in addition, cared for an older gentleman with Downs Syndrome as well as his Mother. I have cared for a woman who had a stroke, is wheelchair bound, and is non-verbal. All of these families have become very dear to me but due to health issues two of these individuals ended up in nursing homes.

Kathleen has provided our family with excellent care and resources in the home and in supportive care for both my mother and brother who has disabilities. She has been able to work as a "team" with the family, has offered valuable info and suggestions and is a strong advocate for those in her care. Communication with the family has been a strength and Kathleen is very attentive to details and concerns that may need follow-up. Kathleen is very respectful of the households she is entering and in supporting my mother to be as independent as possible, helping where needed. She has been flexible with her schedule when we have had care needs that were unplanned. Overall, Kathleen is extremely conscientious and committed from her heart to this work and she provides all aspects of her care-giving, whether physical assistance, daily living tasks, medical follow-ups with appointments etc, with a high level of skill and compassion.
