Personal Caregiver Available Part Time/full Time Wide Range Of Job Duties Associated W/Care-Giving

(9)
I have over 7 years experience working with a wide range of patient types. From temporarily disabled adults, stroke victims, cancer patients to dementia/Alzheimer adults, providing companionship and assistance with activities of daily living ranging from meal preparation, personal hygiene, bathing, gait belt, oxygen tank, medication administration, nebulizer treatments, light housekeeping, laundry, transport to/from appointments, errands, transferring and fall precautions, and incontinence care. I love working with people on a one-on-one basis and always have a friendly, compassionate, and positive attitude.

I was referred to Markwita when looking for care for my aunt. Markwita started working with her the day she came home from her skilled nursing facility after recovering from a lung infection. She was very kind and patient with my aunt who is extremely stubborn and independent, set in her ways. My aunt prefers not to socialize, however, with Markwita's help through conversation, exercised my aunt's lungs so that she could breathe better without her realizing it, could walk for longer periods of time and she was able to breathe so much better and almost without her oxygen at all now even though she suffers from COPD and has survived both lung and breast cancer. Markwita helped her maintain her medications and performed nebulizer treatments, performed light house cleaning duties, laundry and even watered her many plants outside. She taught my aunt how to properly use her portable oxygen tanks so she could keep her independence as my aunt loves to drive and go shopping

Hi there, I fell in love with Caregiving years ago and unfortunately the facility closed. I went in a different direction but over the years have felt it was my true calling. I recently did a temporary assignment as a Personal Assistant/Caregiver for a disabled adult through IHSS and have a letter of recommendation. I then accepted a position back in September for an elderly woman dealing with the onset of dementia. However, her family decided to move her to a facility last month. I have a great review from them on my profile you can read. I hope to hear from you! Warmly, Leslie

Leslie has been AMAZING. In September of 2019, we hired her to take care of my 90 year old mother-in-law who is suffering from early stage dementia. My mother-in-law is not an easy person to deal with. She can be demanding and irritable. Leslie was a wonder at managing her moods. She would have to engage her every morning for a long while to get her out of bed, have her take her meds, wash her up, and feed her breakfast. Even when my mother-in-law was telling Leslie that she hated her and wanted her to be fired, Leslie responded positively and with good humor. We very much enjoyed having Leslie in our household. When time was available, she would help with basic chores. We particularly appreciated her flexibility in being willing to stay late some evenings and come in on some weekend days. We are only moving on because my mother-in-law now requires a higher level of care, and we will be moving her into a senior facility. I highly recommend her for your elder care needs.
