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.

Well. I had been texting back and forth with Mr Steven for a few days and had asked if he would be available for a meet n greet. He said yes and we set a day and time for Friday March 26th at noon. Which happen to be the next day from when I had asked him. I replied that I thought that time and day was good but wanted to make sure no one else in the house had plans I wasn't a where of before I confirmed and said I'd get back with him soon. Well of course my phone went out and didn't get back on until after midnight but as soon as i had realized it was back up and running I sent him the okay that everyone was a available and sent my address. I see that it was read 614 an (day after we scheduled and same day of meeting) but still haven't heard from Mr Steven. So not sure if it was my unintentional late response (phone wouldn't turn on) or that I had told him not to be offended if B was in a bad mood as he has been having more seizures lately and it makes him mad or that he didn't realize B has seizures and decided not to peruse the position. But for whatever reason he hasn't responded to any texts via care.com app. Had hoped it would work out but guess not to be. Just would have been nice to know he wasn't coming so I Could go run errands earlier than was able too as I waited for him come by. A simple "no longer available" message would be respectful of other people's time.

Donna was a learning coach and tutor for our daughter. She is kind and patient. Our daughter had Autism and ADHD, Speech and intellectual disabilities and is extremely shy. That changed in a week of Donna being at our home daily. Donna helped her with her online classes and helped her understand the homework. My Daughters grades greatly improved and their relationship was amazing. My daughter has speech trouble, and Donna talked to her so soft and kind. Donna always showed up to work early and with a smile on her face. She helped with light housekeeping and made a hot breakfast for my for my daughter. Donna is beyond reliable, always on time and extremely dependable. Finding her was a diamond in the sand. Donna goes over and beyond, her personality and her kind heart and loving manner makes her a remarkable human being. I can only give her 5 stars. I wish I could give her 100!!

There's not enough space here to tell you all the great things about having Doris as a caretaker for my now 69 year old mother, who's been living with Alzheimer's for the past 12 years. Doris has been my mother's caretaker for the past 4 years, faithfully and lovingly tending to all her needs. She's been the most punctual and dependable person that I know. I know I can trust her with my eyes closed, even having her take care of mom for weeks at a time while I've been away. It's been a huge blessing being able to find someone like Doris. I recommend her without hesitation. Some of her stand-out qualities are having great emotional intelligence, patience, punctual, dependable, sweet personality, empathetic, kind, and hard working. When we moved we even tried to find a place closer to her in order to not lose her, but we remain eternally grateful for everything she's done for us. We love you, Doris!
