Full/Part Time Caregiver
My work experience includes providing loving care and companionship in the home, as well as assisting as a Caregiver and as an Activities Director in a memory care environment. I have cared for residents suffering from Alzheimer's and other dementia-related illnesses so I am very familiar with Validation Therapy and sun downing. I also believe that a caring environment should include activities that meet your/your loved ones physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
As a Caregiver, I assist with ADLs, meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, medication management, doctor visits, errands, indoor/outdoor activities, holidays/special events, etc.
I am CPR, First Aid and AED certified; a college graduate; and have excellent references and transportation/insurance. I learn quickly; have a strong willingness to help others; and work well independently or as a team member.
