Experienced Senior Caregiver / Companion
Being very kind and respectful is very important, to me, in caring for seniors. Throughout the years, I have experience taking care of the elderly with various limitations and disabilities. I have always been a very compassionate caregiver, companion/aide, and personal assistant, providing seniors with a broad spectrum of personal services, as follows: Daily personal hygiene, bathing, dressing, light meal preparations, prescribed physical exercise, companionship, keeping them mentally engaged with conversation, computer games, card playing, puzzles and other activities, administering prescribed medications, taking of blood sugar & blood pressure, preparation of foods while adhering to special dietary restrictions, rotating of refrigerator staples, errands, grocery shopping, doctor appointments, personal transportation, banking, mail review and follow-up, scheduling appointments, social engagements, responding to phone inquiries. I am very caring, dedicated, responsible and intelligent, as well as having excellent references. In earlier years, I have also cared for my disabled parents, several children, nephews, and nieces.
