Experienced Senior Care Giver Available
I received a scholarship at a nursing school for outstanding care in Geriatrics. I have spent last 3 years as care giver at an adult foster care home. I was responsible for menus, meals, showers, and any cleaning of their rooms which the ladies could not do themselves.
I initiated after lunch crossword puzzle activity that quickly became a favorite of all the ladies in residence. I shopped for them on my own if families could not help soon enough.
When I was 16 I volunteered to clean an elderly woman's apartment who attended the same church as I did. I thouroughly enjoyed my time with her. I loved hearing her stories about coming to the U. S. A. I have always related well to the elderly and enjoyed their company.
I have assisted with folks diagnosed with dementia, COP, Heart diseases, kidney failure, and diabetes.
I've always liked caring for people. My father tells about my first invitation to another girl's birthday party. I came home with my pockets full of treats to share with my sisters because they couldn't go.
