I am a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant who is looking to acquire a position as an in-home care-partner. I use the term, "care-partner" because providing care for an individual requires teamwork. The client, their family, and I must all work together to achieve an optimal outcome for the client. My goal is to build a personal, yet professional, relationship with my clients. Every family/person has different needs and care for that family/person should be tailored for their specific needs. I started working with individuals as a one-on-one care-partner in 2013. I have had the honor of working with people in their homes whom have had cerebrovascular accident (CVA), glioblastoma (cancer of the brain), Parkinson, and Alzheimer's. I assisted them with bed mobility, dressing tasks, toileting, hygiene, medication reminders, feeding, and exercise. It was an honor partnering with these amazing individuals to complete their daily tasks, adding meaning and purpose to their life.
