Stephen M.
Part Or Full-Time Caregiver Available — Philadelphia, PA
I've had the opportunity to work part-time with a gentleman with a form of progressive MS for the past 10 years. My goal is to enhance his quality of life by assisting him with everyday activities and promoting his physical well being. Daily activities include: Providing physical therapy exercises for strength and range of motion, as well as massage and acupressure; assisting him at breakfast; transferring him from bed to his wheelchair, and from wheelchair to toilet and back; hand washing, shampooing, shaving, brushing teeth and dressing; assisting him with a hand urinal; administering medications and vitamin supplements; setting up and assisting with his computer and pretty much whatever he may need at the time. I deeply value the bond and friendship that has developed over the years and have had the privilege of helping this kind, determined, and courageous man. I feel a personal mission to support his well being in any way that I can. I also had the joy of working with a gentleman with Alzheimer's, until his recent passing. My role with hm included working with his family to monitor his overall care at a memory care facility. My goal was to enhance his quality of life, encourage his interest in the world around him, and promote his mental and physical well being. Daily activities included: Walking with him indoors and outdoors to promote his balance and strength while securing his safety; engaging him verbally and with pictures and music to enrich his experience and maximize his mental ability; using my experience as a massage therapist - providing him with physical therapy exercises for strength, range of motion, and balance, as well as acupressure and massage; assisting him at meal times to encourage his independence, as well as social skills in the dining room. I would also assist with traveling to doctor appointments, grocery shopping, some light cooking, making sure he was adequately hydrated, art and music, and some personal care.

A Returning Loving Babysitter — Philadelphia, PA
Hello Parents and Guardians! My name is Briana and I am a returning babysitter. I am looking for a job doing something that I love, and that is taking care of young children and babies. I have been taking care of children, toddlers, infants for the past eight years of my life. When I was just 12 years old my brother, that is now 9, was born and I started caring for him. Coming from a large family and being the eldest of six is what gave me a lot of my experience. I started babysitting on about 4 years ago and was very successful. My first care job I started in high school, which included keeping an 18 month and 4-year-old occupied while the parents were in the house working. Once I graduated high school I started babysitting a lot more and I managed to pick up more babysitting jobs, which gave me experience with almost all ages, some that I don't even remember. During this time I also went to CNA school and received my certification in nursing assistance. Then I was able to get 2 part time jobs in a nursing home. This gave me less time to babysit and I was left with no choice but to delete my old care profile. Many of my good ratings and reviews are gone, but I am willing to rebuild my profile. I am now trying to study further as a neonatal nurse practitioner. I want to turn my passion of taking care of babies into a lifetime experience. The joy that babies bring to this world is just amazing. Their smiles, their goo's, their laughter, just lifts my spirit! Psalm 127:3 says that "children are a heritage from the LORD...." and that is how I see children, as a blessing. I believe that infants, toddlers, and children are special and I treat them as though they're special. When I babysit, I do everything, from feeding, to changing diapers, to playing educational games, putting them to sleep, etc. I also don't mind doing little housekeeping jobs around the house such as: washing clothes, vacuuming around the house, cooking, cleaning, etc. I am very responsible, energetic and young, lovable, and a very trustworthy person. I know a lot of you may not be fond of meeting new people online to care for your children, but I am very honest and I will do anything to help you know that your child is safe. I will do any interviews, provide a clean background check, which is on file with care, and excellent references. As I have said before, my experience ranges across almost all ages, so please let me be that helping hand. I am hoping to become another part of your family. So please feel free to contact me if interested. Hope to hear from you really soon! God Bless, Briana
