I am a compassionate, skilled caregiver with 8 years experience in senior assisted living. I've worked in facilities as well as private situations. My experience includes:
- companionship and social activities, taking walks, and excercise
- cleaning, cooking, laundry, pet care
- medication monitoring and safety monitoring, bathing, personal care
- driving to appointments, making appointments, keeping a calendar
I also have extensive experience working with the challenges of dementia and Alzheimers, and appreciate the patience, strength, and kindness required for that special work.
I took care of my own parents in their last years, so I understand the joys and difficulties that come with that role.
As a caregiver, I am calm, reliable, and an especially good listener. I enjoy learning about people's lives, sharing stories, talking about current events, listening to music, and sharing a good laugh.
