Meet Emily

My love of care giving started as I worked in several nursing homes as a housekeeper, and I am very comfortable with the geriatric population. I have also worked for someone caring for their 80-year-old mother recently as a CNA/housekeeper. I also took care of my husband after his stroke in 2000 (he has lupus with blood clots). I brought him back from a wheelchair state all the way back to a functioning person in society. He has now been in remission for some time. He had to learn everything all over again such as: bathing, dressing, walking, cooking, talking, bathroom... more
My love of care giving started as I worked in several nursing homes as a housekeeper, and I am very comfortable with the geriatric population. I have also worked for someone caring for their 80-year-old mother recently as a CNA/housekeeper. I also took care of my husband after his stroke in 2000 (he has lupus with blood clots). I brought him back from a wheelchair state all the way back to a functioning person in society. He has now been in remission for some time. He had to learn everything all over again such as: bathing, dressing, walking, cooking, talking, bathroom functions and eventually, we worked our way up to him being able to drive again. I took care of all his disability paperwork, long term care, etc. He was in and out of ICU for the better part of a year experiencing kidney failure, pneumonia, various organ shut downs and hematoma. I had to keep track of, regulate and understand all his medications.

The recent work I did for my client from Care. com involved all aspects of housekeeping, transfers, dressing, bathing, meals, laundry, mail, watering plants, gardening, and organizing the house in general. I did errands, driving to, making and keeping all appointments, conferring with doctors, and reporting back to her son, in detail, the goings on throughout the week via email, as he lived out of state. I believe that projecting positive energy goes a long way in helping someone. It gives them confidence that someone cares and believes in them. I tell them they can do it, and then they believe it! It's amazing how that works. I would love to care for your loved one, or just help with housework, if that's what's needed, or even simple companionship.
