Professional Private Home Senior Caregiver
I am a professional and loving caregiver with a strong empathy and understanding of what my clients' situations and needs require. Over the last 15 years, my numerous long-term, private care positions have given me firsthand experience with a wide range of ailments, such as dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke victims, seizures, diabetes, insulin injections, muscular degeneration and Muscular Dystrophy. My services include: Personal hygiene care: bathing, toileting, grooming, dressing, hair, nails, mouth and skin care. Meal preparation: Pureeing foods, feeding and shopping. I can administer medications such as prescribed treatments like nebulizer sessions, light physical therapy and respite care. Session notes are always recorded to maintain accurate and accountable communication between caregivers, medical staff and family members. I happily run errands, perform light housekeeping and offer appointment transportation. I enjoy reading to the visually impaired and I will lovingly care for all pets. I'll do whatever it takes to give my client security and comfort in their everyday activities. I administer medication and I have experience with ventilators, oxygen tanks, glucose monitors, diabetic insulin, tracheotomy machine equipment, Hoyer lifts, nebulizers, tube feedings and colonoscopy maintenance. I am very dedicated and loyal to those I care for, never taking days off and working all Holidays when needed. My hourly rate is $15.00 per hour with a 4 hour minimum. My references are excellent. Thank you for your time and consideration. Less Thank you for your time and consideration.
