Experienced Senior Care Provider
Hello, my name is Sarah and I'm 20 years old. I have 2-3 years experience working with and helping the elderly. I was a consistent volunteer for a local senior living facility for 2 years. I assisted in bathing and changing, reminded seniors about their medication, cleaned and cooked for them, fed them if they were unable, kept food company, helped get out of bed and into wheelchair or walker if they needed it. I also became my great grandparents part time nurse for a year; fed them, got my grandma to dialysis, gave her medication, dyed her hair when she realized it was going white lol I tried to maintain the happiness they were losing sight of since they had both fallen ill and I believe I did just that. They smiled when I arrived and laughed until I left, they always told me how much they loved my company alone and may their soul rest in peace, they were the greatest loss I've experienced. And since then I've always tried to develop healthy relationships with local seniors. I recently had two elderly neighbors, one couple who I visited with often and just kept company and the other a widow in her 90s. I would run errands like going to the bank for her, grocery shopping, household chores, occasionally cooked for her and constantly checked in on her. Although I am not in any way certified to be a nurse I hope you'll consider me for a less vital job as I listed above. I'm very respectful, well mannered, light hearted, honest and kind. I've always been complimented on the company I keep so I'm sure you won't regret considering me. Thank you for your time.
