Senior Helper Available
I was raised by my grandparents, who are now in their 90's and still a very important part of my life. I grew up surrounded by people of their generation, and cherish the values and wisdom I was exposed to throughout my childhood and into my adult years. While other teens were out with friends, I was playing dominoes, Rummy, and Old Maid. I still smile when I hear Etta James, Frank Sinatra or the sound of Big Band music.
In addition to a love for the senior community, I have professional experience as a senior caregiver. I worked as a home care assistant to a retired Air Force Colonel and his service dog, for over a year. During this time, I worked 7 mornings a week, 3 hours a day. My responsibilities included meal preparation, clean up, errands, grocery shopping, and assistance with getting dressed. I greatly enjoyed my time as a friend and caregiver during that time. I worked privately as well as through and agency, and for part of that year provided home care for several other seniors as well.
While I do not have any medical training or background, I do pride myself on my being professional, compassionate, kind and responsible. I learn quickly, adapt easily, and have interpersonal skills that enable me to work with many different personalities. I do well under stress, in emergency situations, and can multitask easily, but also slow down and pay great attention to detail.
The skills I have acquired both in my personal and professional life can be a valuable contribution in the right situation.
I would love to find a position in home or companion care, and will gladly take on any household tasks needed. I can assure you that I will come to work with a positive attitude, smile, and willingness to do all that is needed of me. I take my work seriously and will be punctual and reliable.
