Senior Care & Companionship
I was asked to help seniors in their home when I taught yoga and exercise at various senior centers and rehabs. I have experience with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's/dementia, frail elder, stroke victims and various other limitations and challenges that seniors may have. I shower, dress, medicate, cook, light housekeeping, drive, will do live-in and much more. Also, I have been responsible for hands-on case management for a 98-year-old man. I have had some amazing experiences and met so many wonderful people while care giving! I have a little dog, Paco, that I can or not bring with me--many seniors find him an added bonus. Formerly, I was an Expert Witness in English Language Proficiency with MA courts, teacher of English as a Second Language and, before that, a professional cook for many years. I speak Spanish and am a MA certified (retired) teacher.
