After retiring with 30 yrs in a hospital facility, I got approached by different friends, to do p/t jobs: ULL Nrsg Dept (worked on a $4million grant); babysitter for over 6 years for my brother's friend (an Attrny) & his wife, until they moved to VA; drives a friend's Mom to Bingo; took care of a friend's Mom who had ALS (just passed away); Substitute teach in Laf & Verm Parishes; have our own landscaping and lawn business; cater private functions.....
I'm a people person. I love interacting with people. I have volunteered hours on hours, all my life; I was raised a Roman Catholic and my parents made sure we did for others before ourselves !!
We raised our kids with religion and education as priorities !!! My oldest two each have their Master's Degree------my youngest daughter just started Grad School at UL-Laf on June 5, 2017.
I still do the elderly sitting jobs on an "as needed" basis; thus, I am only interested in something part time, or on an as needed basis. (Driving them to appts., taking them shopping, shopping for them, etc...
I am very flexible as far as the needs of the companion.
I am a 61 y/o w/f. I have been married for 33 years to Larry, from Rayne, LA. My husband and I do handyman services for quite a few elderly customers in the Laf., Maurice and Youngsville area. They know they can trust us; keys to get in their house while they are on vacation is very common.
I also am very familiar with Aspberger and autistic children; I currently assist a physician periodically, with his two sons that have Aspb.
Thank you for taking the time to read; I hope I can help you and/or your family!
Please Note: I can provide references, privately. I would rather not list their personal info publicly. Thanks!
