Hi my name is Camille. I am a non-smoker who has a great sense of humor. I do not text.
I enjoy listening to the elderly. I'm trustworthy and responsible.
My nursing background allows me to provide excellent care all around. You can be sure if you need an Adult Sitter for date night; your loved one will be well taken care of.
I have a background in Music Therapy for any families that need care for someone with Alzheimer's/Parkinson's or Dementia and Cancer.
I'm reliable with excellent references; and can provide a resume on your request!
I am up to date on all flu vaccinations and have a reliable car. I am available full or part time or for adult sitting. I speak English and I am able to follow diet restrictions. I enjoy cooking and preparing meals.
I have worked privately and in groups with Alzheimer's/Parkinson's patients doing Music Therapy, as well
as general care.
I can administer medications, handle g-tube feeding, and all aspects of oncology, wound care, diabetic, post-stroke management, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, brain damage care, depression, asthma management, and tracheotomy care.
With my Music Therapy/OT skills I am able to provide speech and cognitive therapy. I have a bubbly personality and have helped many with depression and weight loss.
I attended UCLA for Music and BOCE in New York for Nursing
I also hold certification as a Mental Hygiene Therapy Aide I have had the pleasure of using my Music/OT skills working with stroke, cancer, and many forms of dementia.
My references would be happy to talk to you, just ask me for them.

Skills & Abilities
My relative has been declining from dementia for about ten years now. He is approaching the end stages. We were looking for a companion caregiver to feed him solid foods (takes longer so the nursing home just provides processed foods) as well as give him reflexology massages.
She is patient, gentle, talks to him, feeds him slowly - which he enjoys - and rubs his hands and feet. He hasn't had facial expressions for about a year now, but I've seen him smile when he heard her voice!
This is a big deal. For the first time in a decade of decline, he has improved! He is more focused, alert, and interested in this life.
I'm not with them when they are together, but if you ask me, that's the best reference of them all.
Thank you for the review Barbara, I truly enjoy spending
the time. So many days I have cried happy tears as his face lights
up with smiles when he sees me. The last day we spent, he
smiled straight for 3 hours and it was a joy.
I know there was a reason to have met him, blessings to him.
We were looking for someone to assist my mother with managing medications, arthritis care, and skin care and to provide companionship and social interaction. I believe that Camille's patient and understanding companionship for the past three months have been responsible in no small part for my mother's greatly improved mood, alertness, and engagement.
Thank you U.L,
I love being around your Mother, she is just full of life and
fun and always has a big smile.
