My name is Jodi and I have always been in the healthcare field, although I got my start as a caregiver over ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with Dementia. I dropped everything and moved back to Chicago to take care of her. A while later my sister and aunt moved in and I continued caring for others who needed assistance due to physical &/or mental limitations. We had Grammy until she passed at 90. I never regretted what I gave up so Gram could stay in a loving environment.
I'm accustomed to a live-in or come-and-go position (for 4-5 days) as well as running errands (I drive and have my own car), setting up and administering medications, cooking, cleaning, laundry, managing finances and more, according to my client's needs and wants.
My references on here and in-hand are excellent. I love what I do and my clients and their families notice. Thinking of how I would want someone to take care of my own grandmother and couple that with my own compassion, empathy and love for people, I let it guide me with each person.
