Personal Caregiver Available Full Time Or Part Time
Hello, my name is Shelly, and I am new to care. com. I have always been a caretaker. It is my nature and also my passion. I took care of my father for six years. Assisting him with his medications and doctor appointments as well as daily care. After his passing, five years ago, I cared for a woman named J . She has dementia and had become extremely reclusive. I assisted her with her bathing, grooming, dressing and medication. I also helped with her laundry and light housekeeping. I accompanied her at meals, and got her involved in activities that she used to love. Church, communion, sing alongs, walks outdoors, and social events. It was extremely rewarding to see her enjoying life again. All she needed was some confidence and a compassionate hand to guide her.
I've lived in Granite Bay for 17 years. I'm married with 2 children, one in college, one in high school. I'm comfortable w/pets. Available Monday thru Friday 8am-5 p.m. References and referrals available upon request.
