Compassionate, Loving, Patient And Dedicated To Senior Care
I have a total of 13 years combined experience caring for seniors. I took care of my father, age 79 who succumbed to cancer and my mother, age 70 who battled emphysema and COPD. I took care of my best friend's grandmother, age 70 who passed away with cancer and most recently for the past 9 years, I lived-in 75% of my time with an elderly senior, age 87 that was part of my extended family, who suffered from Alzheimer's and COPD. My responsibilities with each included; dispensing daily/nightly medications, breathing treatments, bathing, changing diapers, grooming, dressing, cooking and feeding. I also have experience with using a lift. I drove all to their scheduled doctor's visits and have accompanied them to many emergency room visits at the hospital, including staying overnight with them. I also do light housekeeping and laundry. I am a single mother, with an understanding teenager that relates to the work I do. I am compassionate, loving, and have a gentle spirit that will treat your loved one with dignity and respect.
