I have no professional experience caring for the elderly, but I have personal experience caring for grandparents and friends from church. I suffered from an AVM (similar to a stroke) when I was 6 years old, so I can identify with rehabilitation. I am 18 years old, but due to the AVM, I will not complete high school until next year. I have a driver's license, have my own vehicle, and only have slight problems using my left hand. I have excellent references, and am seriously considering going into elder care as a profession. My hours and days/nights available are flexible during the summer. During the school year, I am available after 3 p.m. weekdays, and weekends. I also do pet care, and have experience caring for dogs and cats. I am kind, easy going and good-natured. I am active in "connecting classes", working at Saline area grade schools with elementary age children, many with special needs. This will be my third trimester working in the schools. I have references and evaluations of my work in the classroom.
