Hello, my name is Jenny ! I am 30 years old, I have my own transportation, am responsible, and love caring for others. I am completely dedicated to providing a fun, learning, and safe environment.
I Currently I volunteer at a senior care center where I help with many aspects of their daily lives. I walk with the residents while we converse or push their wheelchair. I help with serving meals, eating assistance, and with managing difficult behaviors. I also help manage the gift shop inside of the center where many residents come to talk to me while they get a greeting card, snack, or gift.I love being there and I'd like to help families who need care in their homes.
I am more than willing to help with any aspect including, laundry, food preparation and cooking, meal planning, medication, driving, running errands, and any else.
My grandfather has Dementia and I also help my grandma take care of him. I have also helped with many cancer patients, mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as the normal aging process.
I am CPR certified, First Aid certified, I have a Fingerprint ID Card, and have certificates in educational and various workshops including mental health, education, nutrition, medication, and many more! I have majored in Psychology, Education, Development, and I'm going back for Nutrition and Nursing. I am also fluent in Spanish.
I love spending time with and caring for others of all ages. I consider it a privilege and I'm so thankful for the opportunity to have been and still be a part of such wonderful families.
Please contact me to see if I might be a good addition in your loved ones care plan.
