Who better to care for your elderly loved one than someone who has done it day in and day out for years? I lived with and cared for my grandmother for 9 years and we were able to keep her at home until she passed away a few years ago. She had cancer and was a diabetic. I did 100% of the cooking, cleaning, and errands for her. Our family was so thankful to be able to keep her out of a nursing home so she could spend her golden years in a place where she was comfortable. I also have a college degree in Social Work and have worked as a case manager for the elderly - making home visits, helping them sort out their paperwork, apply for benefits, etc. I have also held a job with low-income elderly in a residential setting, taking care of their day-to-day needs. I am certified in First Aid & CPR and have also worked alongside of Hospice to provide the best comprehensive care. At this time, I have a young daughter at home so I am unable to do live-in care. I'm looking for a family who needs occasional help in the evenings or weekends (unless it's errands or something similar where I can bring my daughter during the day) with things like cooking, light cleaning, hygiene, and just keeping someone company. I can also do daily check-in calls for a small fee if you're going to be out of town.
