Part Time Care Giver
I am a wife, mother of 2, and only child to visually impaired parents. Mom is totally blind since birth, on dialysis & a diabetic. Dad has less than 5% vision due to muscular degeneration, has dementia & poor mobility. We've lived in Rockland for 26 years in a mother-daughter home. This enables me to help my parents on a daily basis
I worked in food service in a local school district for 20yrs, a director the last 11. 5 of those years. My love of cooking & the convenience of working around my family's schedules led me to work in this field. My children are grown, so now my career path has changed. I have been a personal care companion for the last 5 yrs assisting with the needs of the aging. I've cared for seniors who were bed ridden, had dementia, Parkinson's, those needing transportation to appointments or shopping, and meal prep. I am used to the daily struggles that seniors may encounter and I look forward to being a companion/caregiver for your loved one.
