Experienced caregiver - 15+ years as a Speech Therapist working with adults and elders, including stroke recovery, Parkinson's and dementia. Prior to being a Speech Therapist I worked a few years as a caregiver and for adults with a variety of disabilities.
I'm taking a break from speech therapy and am looking for consistent hours as a companion. I am patient, reliable, and a good listener. My professional experience includes adapting communication style for the client's needs, helping to adapt the environment for cognitive and communication needs, as well as developing cognitive stimulation plans. I can cook and do light housekeeping/tidying as needed.
