Meet Edwina

Throughout my professional caregiver career since 2002 when I receive my C. N. A. License, I've provided companionship/conversation to seniors.

Experiences: I've worked extensively with seniors with mild to severe Alzheimer's/Dementia and aging difficulties, stroke, Post Surgery Recovery, Orthopedic care, Cancer recovery. I am very passionate about what I do, and enjoyed taking care of the elderly. My passion and my personality is my most valuable asset.

Throughout my professional caregiver career since 2002 when I receive my C. N. A. License, I've provided companionship/conversation to seniors.

Experiences: I've worked extensively with seniors with mild to severe Alzheimer's/Dementia and aging difficulties, stroke, Post Surgery Recovery, Orthopedic care, Cancer recovery. I am very passionate about what I do, and enjoyed taking care of the elderly. My passion and my personality is my most valuable asset. I am friendly, people oriented, detail-oriented with excellent work ethic. I am a compassionate and nurturing caregiver, after all seniors are vulnerable and may have limited mobility and memory limitations.

Families and I have devised a plan that would assist with activities of daily living for their loved ones. Bathing/dressing oral hygiene transportation, wheel transferring to and from wheelchair, toileting transportation/ Doctor's appointment/ hair salon appointment errands/grocery shopping, meal preparation/special diet, feeding, medication management light house-keeping laundry, dishes.

The clients and I routinely did specialized exercise. I always offer passive range of motion in order to maintain mobility in hands, arms, legs /program exercise. I've scheduled outings with the client/clients. I have a passion for what I do, and enjoyed sharing my times making memories and helping them lived vicariously through the stories of their lives, I also work overnight.

My hobbies are: With the client/clients and myself, reading the news paper, chatting, walks outside or at the park, watching movies/news, cooking. I loved to cook.

Thank you,

I was so lucky to have cared for your Mom, she made my day special in so many ways: from applying cream on her hands and doing her nails, to tidying her room so it always looks
