My duties also include light housekeeping, grocery store, cooking, pharmacy pickup, assist with reading material.
The patients that I have provided care for in the past have had COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), compressed fractures in upper and lower back, 2 hip replacements, one patient was on coumadin (medication -skin was very thin), and one required help with light exercise (walking with walker or assist without). Another patient had macular degeneration in 1 eye, affecting the other (vision); I assisted with reading material, mail, bills, paperwork.
I am a very devoted, positive and caring person. I enjoy being a caregiver and giving someone the best possible care, making them feel happy, safe and comfortable; most importantly, listening, talking and providing emotional support.
My interests are walks, spending time with family/friends and my 2 dogs!!
