Hi, my name is Christi and I live in a community for adults 55 and over. I work from home doing marketing work for our family business. I have flexibility with my time and would like to offer my help to older neighbors in my area to companion them, help with light housekeeping, meals, outings, errands, socializing, and light nursing care. In 2016, I earned 75 hour and 150 hour CNA certificates and worked at Broadlawns and then Iowa Jewish Senior Life Center for several months before starting the family publishing business. I continue to visit former friends and colleagues at the nursing home with friends or pets about 3 times a month. I also work with families and children in the River Bend/King Irving neighborhoods on an after school junior youth spiritual empowerment program. Religion is important to me and so is respecting everyone's belief systems. I enjoy listening to elders' stories and I offer an audio/video recording, transcribing service for them and their family.
