As a Senior caregiver, I understand the importance of needing some one reliable. I have a recent and completed background check and references that you can refer to on the sittercity sight. In addition, you are able to view comments on a few of the clients that I have had the opportunity to provide a variety of services to through Sittercity.
My objective: Seeking a professional caregiving positions offering on-going professionalism, and genuine care about people that translate that attitude into action that makes a difference in peoples lives. In addition, I am constantly updating myself with information in the elderly population by seeking training opportunities.
In addition, I have 20+ years experience working in the Health & Human Service field as a protective service worker (social worker). I worked with the elderly population, adults & children with disabilities. In addition, I looked after children raging from the ages of Newborn to 18 years old. As three of my children are now at school, my job as their mother has allowed me to work various hours while obtaining the goals to further my education. I will be completing my degree in the Masters Program of Social Work at San Diego State University. Hence, I am in need of a new position and for which I would be glad to enclose my resume for your attention upon your request.
I began working as a caregiver by assisting adults with disabilities case management services and working with elderly population through different senior caregivers agencies since 1992.
I love working with people and I take my responsibilities very seriously. I assure you of my honesty and integrity.
My most recent senior care giving position with sitterycity was with a 90 years old gentleman. Initially, I was hired part-time to spend time with him and assist with cooking, transportation to the store, doctor's appointment and other errands. However, he began to need more assistance than his daughter alone could provide.
Shortly after being hired as a companion/caregiver my 90 year old friend required several hospitalization and started to need 24/7 complete caretaker assistance. Was able to organize two other caregiver assistance to cover the hours that I was not able to. I had organized all the caregiver shifts to cover his needs by setting up a notebook to track his blood pressure, medication schedule, weight and everything else needed for the on going visiting nurse. In addition, a communication log was implemented that helped keep everything straight between the three caregivers.
I have cared for seniors with the following conditions or needs: Stroke, Hip Replacement, Alzheimer's Disease, Cancer, Catheter, Diabetes, Feeding Tube, Hospice, Parkinson's Disease. I enjoy providing assistance to seniors and would like to continue to develop my caregiving skills by providing one-on-one care as a professional caregiver.
I have also assisted senior clients with Activities of Daily Living. The assignments I provided were the following: Assisted with personal care, meals, housekeeping, medication reminders, grocery shopping, escorted to doctor's appointments and engaged in daily activities, including organizing mail, managing appointments, reading newspaper and exercising.
In addition, I Assisted patients with bathing, dressing, meals and medications. Maintained patient records, updated R.N. on duty and assisted patients with preparation and recovery for any additional hospital tests and services.
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at the above telephone numbers. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Thanks Wanda for helping me out on the six days of elderly care I really needed for my mom! Also appreciated you going the extra mile to taking my mom out to the local lakes and sites.
