Full-Time In Home Personal Care Attendant

Avg response < 10 hrs
I began my experience caring for my father who was in dementia/Alzheimer's, typical personal grooming and daily exercise, reading and supervision of medicines. As time moved on, I assisted a retired Doctor with his housecleaning chores. Usually, I would tend to his home adding a sparkling touch of not only cleanliness and shine but much needed organization. Chores involved were stripping his bed, laundering his bed sheets, blankets and clothing, making the bed, vacuum cleaning his bedroom and dusting. Cleaning would include the tub, toilet, basin, shower, and bathroom floors. No, I did not forget the mirrors, also vacuum cleaning, sweeping and dusting the other floors and areas in the house, removal of trash and freshen receptacles, clean dishes and/or check dishwasher to put away dishes. His personal friends needed someone to clean their home on a part-time basis. I took the part-time work and ended up becoming a live in personal care attendant. I have supervised medicines, menu planned and prepared meals to include a special salt free diet. I do all the shopping and put away. I have maintained the vehicle by taking it in for checkups and lube jobs. I do all housework as previously described. I have read to my clients, driven to doctor/dental appointments, or hair, nail and podiatry appointments. I have hospice experience and registry work also. I have volunteered for a care center. I have current TB/shots and DOJ background check through Eskaton from volunteering. I have three other clients of which I have worked for doing miscellaneous cleaning and errands. One client is now deceased and she was an antique dealer. I have been a mother to three growing children who now have children of their own. I have 20 plus years of volunteer work with the Girl Scouts of America serving in a leadership capacity in one form or another to include supervision of adults. I was a senior coordinator for a volunteer program in Orange County, California. I was proactive in working with seniors at a health center and various volunteer venues. I enjoy pets if they are friendly and have a cat of my own whom I inherited from my daughter. He is a senior cat by the way and I am very patient with his moods and needs. I drive an insured truck and have therefore room for equipment which may need to be transported. I am familiar with most senior in home helpful aids such as toilet risers, walkers of all kinds, bed bars, shower seats, etc. 6 years current experience. Several licenses.

Marilyn has been a huge help with my mother since a recent surgery. She connects well with both my folks, and brings a positive vibe to their little household. Marilyn has a gift for seeing what needs to be done and sets a daily agenda with Mom, while also keeping in touch with me so I don't worry. So thankful for her expertise!

20 + Years Of Experience | Seeking In-home Care Position

For the last 20+ years I have worked with several different families including senior, child and animal care. I have a degree in early childhood development and was a preschool teacher for 8+ years. I have 3 grown children who are now adults and have families of their own! I have a passion for in- home care giving and see the importance in incorporating my massage therapy experience by offering Acupressure, Reflexology and other healing modalities to my senior clients. It has been a blessing to care for over 10 senior clients and truly become a part of the family, providing them with care and companionship in their last precious years with us. I recently completed an advanced course and received a certification to implement Massage Therapy techniques to relax and uplift Hospice patients in a time of need. Looking for a long term, part to full-time in home care giving position. Open to child and pet care as well.

My name is Alyssa P. I am a 39-year-old's spastic quadriplegic affected by cerebral palsy. As I am a sedentary individual, completely confined to a wheelchair for mobility. Reflexology has helped me immensely to relieve constipation, improve circulation, and reduce muscular tension as a result of my spasticity. For the past eight years, I have been the client of a wonderful Reflexologist practitioner, Paula S. As I have had many sessions with Paula, I find her knowledge and experience with reflexology has proven to be a great asset that continues to keep my body in balance. One of the things I personally love about Paula is her great insistence and emphasis on the importance of feedback by the client with regard to "How a client is "Physically Feeling?" after a particular session. Lastly, I cannot emphasize enough how reputable, dependable, and flexible Paula has been over the last eight years. I highly recommend Paula!
