  About Me
 
Hi, I am Natasha. I just got married this year. I have lived in Calgary for about a year and a half. I work for a Trucking company online. I put orders/rates into the system. I also dispatch orders to 50 truck drivers.
With this job, I work from home. This flexibility allows me to have a second job. Home care is something I absolutely love to do. Being able to provide care, and companionship is so rewarding.
I have a passion for working with the elderly. I have always been very close to my grandparents. In high school, I started volunteering once a week. I completed 250 hours before I graduated. This is where I found my strength for connecting and helping the elderly. Not only have I worked doing private homecare for over 5 years, but I am also a Registered Massage Therapist and Natural Health Consultant.
Elderly deserve the best care and respect. I love hearing the stories, or playing cards, making meals, cleaning, personal care. I have taken Alzheimer’s Disease Course, and personal hygiene, lift/transfer course, etc. I have worked with special needs, Alzheimer clients, and clients with mobility limitations. I feel very comfortable with lifts and transfers, as I have competed in 2 bodybuilding competitions. I love to learn new skills as well.
