Meet Jerome
I have worked in a private senior living facility, nursing home, private care and through an agency as well. I am well experienced in Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson's disease, minor and major health issues, trauma and/or accident recovery. I also handled patients who have bipolar disease, hospice and respite care, patients with catheter, patients using hoyer lift, motorized wheelchair, g-tube feeding, medication management, insulin injections, etc. I have worked in the LA and OC areas and did live-in and live-out, 24/7 care and also shifting schedules. My duties include performing supported walking, exercises programs and monitoring of symptoms associated with medical conditions under doctor's orders. I have experienced performing duties for patients, such as assisting them in and out of bed, bathing, dressing, grooming and administering oral medications under doctor's orders. My duties also include performing household duties, such as laundry, grocery shopping, other errands and meal preparations. I also have experience driving patients to doctor's appointments, family gatherings and special occasions. A professional caregiver possesses two key qualifications: A compassionate heart and home care experience. The first and most significant caregiver qualification is the compassionate heart. No training can create this uncompromising required quality. It's simply part of who the caregiver is. This is a mandatory prerequisite for every one caregiver. And still, experience is the best teacher. As of now, I have over 8 years of experience working as a caregiver and/or in geriatric management. As a private caregiver (mostly Care. com clients), My duties and responsibilities are; companionship, assisted living, ADLs (activities of daily living), experienced also taking care of patient with extreme level of depression and anxiety issues, companion care, home care, muscular dystrophy/atrophy, disabled, recovery after serious injuries or surgery, limited mobility, chronic illnesses, and any other conditions that requires extra assistance at home. I have some great and challenging experiences also, taking care of patients (young and adult) with developmental disorders, autism, Asperger's & ADHD respectively. I'm still trying to attend programs and seminars, to attain more knowledge in this field, which will surely help me more in the future, especially helping the elderly and those with special needs. Because I treat them as my own family, this is not just a job or responsibility that I have to do. But instead, it's a mission in life that's truly makes me happy and fulfilled. This is my life, and this is a gift from above that I will forever cherish.
