Hello! Looking for a caregiver for a loved one is a big decision. I understand how important it is to find someone who is experienced, kind and trustworthy, and who will treat your family member with compassion and respect. That is what I believe a caregiver should provide, and I do my best to live by these principles. I've cared for a man with MS, with very limited mobility, I provided all aspects of his care, meds, bathing, toileting, feeding, cooking, managing and wheelchair transport to Dr appointments, housecleaning, regular stretching and muscle care, and assisting the physical therapist during his weekly appointments. I have also been a Residential Youth Childcare worker, and am certified as such. Supervised day to day needs of mentally challenged adolescent boys, in a trauma centered care facility. Encouraged and modeled healthy communication with staff and peers, training and experience in conflict resolution and de escalation in a crisis situation.
