  About Me
 
Graduated with a Social Service Diploma. Trained in working with Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinsons, Aphasia clients and people with special needs. I have 10 years of experience working with seniors in their home providing a range of client services and care. 14 years experience as a Coordinator of volunteers working with seniors.

Have raised 3 children. Hobbies are kayaking, hiking, biking and rock climbing.

When I am with a client I focus on getting to know their needs and interests. Some ways I engage with a person is playing music they love on CD's, conversations, companionship, discovering their interests, playing games, going for drives and visiting places of interest. Will do errands, appointments, buying groceries and outings.

Can prepare light meals, light cleaning.

If you want a part time (several hours a week) compassionate trusted companion/home care provider who truly spends quality time with your loved one then we would be a good match.

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
5 years experience, 2 references
I oversaw 250 senior volunteers in a non profit company for almost 14 years. For the past 5 years I have been working with seniors and also adults with special needs in their own homes, retirement homes, and in adult day centers. I also work with adults dealing with dementia and Alzheimer's. Depending on each person's needs and requirements, I try to create an environment of interest, activities, games, conversation, outdoor walks, programs and community involvement. I also worked as an interim Pastoral Care director doing hospital and home visitations.

I also provide personal care and companionship. Light house work, shopping, laundry transportation to appointments, light garden work, light meals, hygiene care and toileting.
