I have cared for two men in the past three years. I cared for an 88 year old male for over two years until he was unable to live at home due to severe dementia. In November 2011 I began caring for a 52 year old immobile male. My responsibilities in these care giver jobs have included: house cleaning, personal care, pet care, grocery shopping, medication administration and pick up, socialization, and meals. I have really enjoyed my experience with care giving!

I hired Amanda to take care of my 88 year old mother diagnosed with end stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and heart failure. My mother was pleasant but also an attention seeker and could be very demanding at times. Amanda, a senior nursing student at the time, fit the bill. Out of all the hired caregivers I enlisted, Amanda was the most knowledgeable, caring and loving person! She is a doll! She made sure Mom was well taken care of, safe, and handled her with loving hands. Mom loved Amanda and within a few days Amanda felt like family to us. Amanda was responsible for bringing medications to her, nebulizer treatments, helping her to ambulate or to the bathroom, wound/skin care, some meal preparation, simple housekeeping, and driving mom to outside activities.
I highly recommend Amanda if you are looking for someone, however, she is SO WONDERFUL, I know this new nurse is going to go very far and be a great success in life!
