Meeting the needs of family (including a 102-year-old aunt) and friends has morphed into providing healthcare advocacy and companionship for adults in need, including post-op recovery help, offering companionship at home or in a nursing home setting, constantly looking for ways to keep individuals active and interested in life. This also includes clients with temporary setbacks who generally provide for themselves. Strong ability to anticipate a client's needs while respecting their autonomy and privacy. I assist with making and meeting appointments. I am comfortable around pets and willing to help with them, too, particularly if the client is temporarily or permanently unable to help with the pets' upkeep (sorry, this does not include reptiles, only dogs, cats, birds and perhaps a fish). I am willing to cook meals -- nothing fancy with emphasis on healthy, balanced and nutritious. Here is another thread to think about: I am handy with a needle, thread, sewing machine and other crafty type of things so I can also take care of mending things (clothes included). I'm able to adapt my client's clothing to make it easier to dress and undress.
