Meet Monika

I have 4 years of live-in caregiver experience with two very different female Alzheimer's patients. Both families were fully relying on my responsible and life improving work and gave excellent references.
My first patient Daisy T. was having strong "Sun-Down syndrome" with hallucinations and confusions. She needed to be placed into a residential care facility.
My second patient was diagnosed at Stanford. She had very little capacity to speak and understand. She was in her later state. I cared for her until she passed away this January, from March 2010.

I have 4 years of live-in caregiver experience with two very different female Alzheimer's patients. Both families were fully relying on my responsible and life improving work and gave excellent references.
My first patient Daisy T. was having strong "Sun-Down syndrome" with hallucinations and confusions. She needed to be placed into a residential care facility.
My second patient was diagnosed at Stanford. She had very little capacity to speak and understand. She was in her later state. I cared for her until she passed away this January, from March 2010.
I enjoyed taking care of them and treated them like my own mom. I have assisted in household chores, medication in-take, daily reports for insurance, supervised hygiene, prepared healthy and delicious meals, companionship, playing games, reading stories, watching children at the playground from a park bench, or baking the favorite apple pie to bring to potluck dinners at social events.
Provide services for transportation, errands, shopping, doctor appointment, family events, church or other senior programs.
100 % trustworthy with excellent references, non-smoker, no drugs anyway, love besides elderly also children, pets, nature, and philosophy. I'm musical, empathic, patient, calm, a good listener, independently as well in team work very proficient, tidy, pleasant to be with. I have a Bachelor degree in sociology, several years experience of being a kindergarten teacher as well as educator with older (foster) children, have a valid CPR / First Aid license, a clean driving report, took a course in nutrition for elder people at the Baumann College in Capitola, CA. I served for over 25 years as a religious worker in an international renowned Yoga organization, who brought me in 2000 to the U.S. I taught Yoga also to elderly and children in many countries. I'm German, single, having all my family members living there. I'm happy to grow into a new family!

Heidi B. says:
Monkia was very good with our 5 year old daughter. She spoke German to her and was very involved playing games and creating art projects and helping with homework. We enjoyed having her in our home and recommend her.
