I became a Care Companion after my Daddy was placed in a long term nursing facility, due to dementia. He is still a resident. Spending large amounts of time, doting on and petting and pampering , not only Daddy but, the other residents, as well, gave me such a greater appreciation for the elderly.
I am not a CNA, and therefore forego some of the duties associated; such as toileting and bathing . I do assist with ambulation, staying with the elder as they do their self-care. I’m there to hand a towel or help them dry off and apply lotion, if that’s their desire. I remain within reach, should a problem arise and focus on the client’s safety.
I do laundry (no ironing) and light housekeeping within the client’s home.
I don’t mind pets, as long as they are not mean. I will assist the client in their care, if requested.
I have never been employed by an agency.
I have worked for various clients in their homes, during the last 5 years. I have been a sitter, driver, shopper and anything else the elder asked of me.
It is my belief, that we can learn a lot from the elderly.
PLEASE NOTE...I do smoke. However, I do not smoke around a client (unless requested to do so.) I smoke outside! I do not smoke in my own home and certainly wouldn’t in someone else’s.
