Caring, Nurturing And Responsible Person Looking To Help Out.
I currently work as a PCA. I have experience working with people who have Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's Disease. I will take on any errands that are needed, as well as housekeeping, pet care and doctor appointments. I also have had a hairdressing license for 10 years, and would be able to give haircuts, perms, etc. inside the home if ever needed. I will tell you just a little bit of why I have such a strong passion for this line of work.
My Grandparents were (and still are) my world. My grandfather was a firefighter, and a plumber. After many years of working with asbestos and working for the fire department, his lungs became weak, and slowly started to shut down. My grandmother took care of him through thick and thin, and helped him physically and mentally ever second of every day. Words can not explain the pain we endured watching him go through such agony. I knew I had to stay strong and give him every bit of happiness that I could...he was the rock and the hero of our family. It got to the point where I would do and say anything just to see him smile or hear him laugh (as he used to.) My grandfather passed away. Shortly after, my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. With all of that being said, I have realized that this line of work is my passion, my whole heart is in it. I promise to give you or your loved one the same respect, loyalty and care as I would my own grandparents.
