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.

Your Special Needs Are My Special Needs
Compassionate, patient and nurturing special needs caregiver who enjoys working with those who need me. I have over 7 years of experience working with our senior population, Autistic and other clients with cognitive challenges. I have over 2 years experience as med tech working in senior/Dementia and Alzheimer's facilities. I have graduated from an accredited CNA school and have worked that roll over the last 2 years as well. As I start to pursue being a nurse, I've grown to realize my true calling is directly linked to healthcare. Being there for the sick and the disable allows me to operate in my gift. I am currently seeking a family or organization/facility that will allow me to give the best care to their loved one or clients/patients. I am available for morning shifts starting from 6 a.m. - 1 p.m. Monday - Friday.

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.
