One of my earliest positions was working in a retirement center and what I enjoyed most was engaging with the residents.
Being the oldest daughter of 6 siblings and the mother of 3 grown children has provided the ground work for being a natural caregiver. I have since worked with preschoolers, worked in a pharmacy, hearing aid center, library and the school district and all of these hats have helped to form a great knowledge base in assisting my elderly family members. I have previously assisted my disabled and diabetic father. I lived with my grandparents and provided various levels of care-giving and had my grandmother live in my home here locally. My experience includes activities of daily living, medication management, food planning and prep, medical appts, errands and money management and general companionship, to include conversation, games, puzzles, outings, gardening, drives, afternoon lunch/coffee, pets, movies and books.
I would love to see how I might be able to help you.
