I am a nurturing person and have cared for my terminally ill father for the past five years, until his passing in November of 2009.
Effective November 1, 2012 I will be relocating to Conyers GA and will looking for a position as a child care provider or caregiver.
While In Virginia, My last position (Sept. 11 to October 9th) was as an aide/companion to an awesome 20-year-old special needs young man with Autism and Downs Syndrome. Through him I find that I am very comfortable with special needs children and adults and want to continue caring for them.
Prior to that I worked as a live in caregiver to a STAGE 6
Alzheimer's patient (She was in her 80's). I cared for her for a little over a year.
I was also an overnight weekend childcare provider to 3 children. One of the children was a special needs child. I cared for all three children. I did this for about nine months or so.
I am flexible in my choice of babysitting and also elder care. My mother used to run a child care service out of her home, for as long as I could remember and I used to help her out by taking the children on trips to the park, assisting with food preparation, etc. I have multiple years of experience in child rearing child and elder care.
