I am a very caring and compassionate individual who loves helping people. I am hardworking, dependable, and trustworthy. I became a full-time caregiver to my ailing father who had suffered a major brain aneurysm that left him immobile and unable to speak. I spent a lot of time teaching him many basic life skills after his brain injury. I was able to teach him some things, but he never was able to speak or walk again before he passed away recently. I have experience with full care of a patient such as bathing, feeding, tube feeding, using a Hoyer lift to get patient in and out of bed, dispensing medicines, physical therapy, companionship and more. I love caring for people, I am patient and kind, and my heart truly goes out to people and families in need. Prior to caring for my father, I owned my own house cleaning business for 12 years. I have many references available if needed.
