I have experience as a caregiver, companion, and personal driver. I have been working in this field for two years. I have two amazing mentors, each with a full career of experience in social services. Working closely under them has made this an exceptional period of professional growth.
Specifically my experience is in one-on-one care. I help with ADLs, medication reminders, companionship/social stimulation, light meal preparation, light housekeeping, bathing, and whatever else needs doing. I love what I do and I'm glad I'm doing it. I wish I had discovered it sooner though my previous work experience is a valuable part of who I am.
From those previous work experiences as a Custodian and as a Lineman for the phone company, I have an additional set of skills and discipline that continue to inform the service I provide.
