Home Care Rates $11 per hour
I’m great with animals (my original profile was for pet sitting)... but I also have a 3 year old baby sister that I’ve been responsible for since she was born while my mother worked full time... and a 10 year old cousin (my mom’s sister’s son) who I basically raised while my Aunt was in nursing school full time at UAH.
My mother has been a home health nurse for years, so I’ve learned so much from her as far as patient care and medication administration.... and even wound care (but I definitely do not prefer to do would care or any other nursing skill...I’’m much better at teaching and entertaining than at skills which require a stomach of steal... lol). I consider myself a fun, loving, caring person who’s dedication in life is to leave the world a better place and be the positive energy for anyone who needs it. I’m good with people. I’m good with kids, animals, elderly, professionals and nonprofessionals. I’m good with responsibility, cleaning, cooking, schedules, being on time, teaching, technology (especially Iphones) and joking around! :-)
I’m not good with ....avoiding junk food, anything grotesque (open wounds, anything else my mom does in her job, lol), long lines, keeping up with my debit card, rudeness, or car maintenance.
I have been a tutor for the last 3 years.... teaching everything from English to Math to Chemistry. Math is my favorite... and I enjoy teaching it the most.
I believe in teaching. “If you catch a child a fish you feed him for a day.... if you teach a child to fish you feed him for a lifetime.”
This has been my mother’s most revered quote raising my brother and I... we both were in the Talented and Gifted program throughout all of elementary and middle school, and received multiple honors, awards and scholarships throughout high school..... which led to the full rides we’re enjoying now! I haven’t enjoyed assisting her with this same philosophy raising my baby sister and I know that having this mentality is not only beneficial to the child, but also imperative to our society as a whole.
I’m extremely responsible and dependable, and can provide references. Kids and animals seem to love me and have no trouble adjusting to my presence. I’m honest and have dedicated work ethics... and I come from a great, close family of loving, dedicated, empathetic caregivers!! :-)))
All pay requirements are definitely negotiable...
