I have 28 yrs of hospice nursing exp., providing sensitive care and managing symptoms for people living with serious illness. I have add'l experience working with Palliative Care, ALS, Dementia, Geriatric Care, Parkinson's Disease, Oncology, Respiratory Conditions. I am interested in providing part or full time companionship / personal care - light assistance, feeding, safe transfers, light housework, bathing. I enjoy both companion sitting and complex caregiver assistance at $18.- $30. / hr depending on complexity of care. I am proficient in all stages of ALS care, serious health conditions, the dying process. I carry certification in massage therapy, reflexology, aromatherapy and can lightly apply safe techniques in care (w/ signed consent) to ease anxiety and pain. I am equally light hearted and supportive to those living well by keeping clients engaged in self interests, the home safe and feeling a sense of independence. References available upon request!
