Exceptional Part-time Care-giver
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.
