Responsible, Friendly Companion And Caregiver
I am a recently retired 62-year-old mother & grandmother, have been cooking / cleaning house since I was 12 years old. I am friendly, outgoing, and sympathetic to people's needs. I would love to talk to you about a position cooking, doing light housework (vacuum, laundry, dishes, etc.), driving, and companionship. No heavy lifting due to back issues
I am also comfortable around pets, including cranky husbands, children, dogs, etc.. I have at least one of each of these myself.
I would prefer to work with someone in the general Fairfax area who is mobile. Also, I need to work in a non-smoking home.
Prior to entering the workforce, I used to care for my husband's grandmother who had dementia . In addition to cooking and tidying up, I also planned lots of activities such as art projects, bake and decorate cookies, take short walks, play games, and watch TV, etc.. My goal was to enrich her life with staying busy, while ensuring that her daughter didn't have to worry about her.
