I was main caregiver for client with end-stage Alzheimer's disease for two and a half yrs until she passed away. This consisted of meal preparation and feeding, bathing and skin care, incontinence, well being, supervision and scheduling of extra help coming into home, concise medication schedule and medical visits to doctors, physical therapy and breathing therapy, and worked with skilled professionals when needed, i.e., speech therapist etc. I have also been a care provider for a client diagnosed with bi-polar and dementia assisting with meals and housekeeping. I have cared for a stroke patient, assisting with personal hygiene, meal preparation, laundry, medications, and housekeeping. I am very compassionate and loving, and find caring for the elderly and disabled to be very rewarding!
