Compassionate, Experienced Caregiver With A Special Interest In Dementia Patients
I'm a registered with the State of Washington as an NAR and I've completed the CNA course, fundamentals of care giving. I have Nurse Delegation certificates that qualify me to administer medicines and to care for individuals with diabetes. I have quite a bit of experience, both as a paid and unpaid caregiver. While I was in college, I was a part-time respite caregiver. Later, I was one of the people providing personal care to my dad after he had a stroke. I did this for about seven years. I was a clerical worker in a hospital for 10 years and in 2011 made a career change to being a caregiver. I love working with my clients and enjoy connecting with families around the care of their elders. It's rewarding to know that what I do enhances an individual's quality of life. With just a little extra assistance, many seniors can maintain their independence and continue to do the activities they enjoy. I have a special interest in working with people that have dementia. I have the ability to enter into the affected person's vision of reality without trying to impose a different version that might "make more sense." My greatest satisfaction is when I can make life fun for a person whose condition can sometimes cause them to be frightened and confused. I have an ongoing commitment to learning about this condition and I am intent on the goal of accruing the interpersonal skills necessary in dealing with dementia patients. I love working with my clients and enjoy connecting with families around the care of their elders. It's rewarding to know that what I do enhances an individual's quality of life.

Part-time Friday Gal
I enjoy working with the elderly because they are the story keepers from years past and should be well taken care of and respected. I owned a business in which we sent caregivers out to do non-medical care. I now work in a nursing home taking care of veterans.
