Special Needs For Special Needs!

Being someone who was born with hearing loss that I struggled with as a child, I know how frustrating and beautiful it can be to be different. I've worked with those with Aspergers, Parkinson's, Dementia, and many others both in the private care sector and in my personal life. My most recent long-term care job was with a little girl with psychogenic blackouts that was linked to her panic and anxiety disorders. I hope to hear from you and whoever it is that might need care so that I can help in whatever way possible.

While I was getting my Masters in Counseling, I lived with a woman that had MS for 2 years. I oversaw her medication, the HHA's that came into the home, shopped, did cleaning and cooking and other various tasks. I cared for clients with Stage 7 Alzheimer's, a woman who has Parkinson's and one with Depression and Complex PTSD. I was a Live in Caregiver for an 82 y/o gentlemen with Stage 7 Alzheimer's. Presently, back caring for my client with Parkinson's and a couple with many complex medical issues between the two of them. Apart from all of the above, I cared for my g'parents and my mom for 3 separate procedures. I work as a Senior Caregiver, but if the person is a young adult, I would be willing to consider that.

I have worked with special needs students as a school bus driver for five plus years. I have had many different types of children in my care. I have worked with the elderly over 20 years now, and have taken care of many family members. My grandfather had Alzheimer's and my grandmothers both had cancer. I have also cared for four other elderly people and help in all ways within the household. I'm very happy when I can help people in need. I enjoy talking to them and listening to all their great stories and helping with all their needs.
