I'm a woman in my forties with varied experience in care for seniors and those of all ages w special needs/abilities. I was a very part-time companion for a man in his nineties for a few years in the early nineties. I was also a CNA in nursing homes for a few years in PA and then in W. Mass later in the 90s. I also participated for seven years in a "Lifesharing" community for folks w differing abilities, including mental retardation and autism, from 1999 to 2006. My experience working w dementia is very limited. I'm an accomplished cook of healthy nourishing foods that taste delicious, and a gardener. I am mildly sensitive to chemicals and can clean only if environmentally friendly products are preferred and used, or if you are truly open to this possibility. (I also had an environmentally friendly cleaning service for many years part-time.)
I would consider a live-in situation if the living quarters are quiet and personal space is able to be completely respected by my companion, actual daily work hours are very explicit (other than ofcourse for unusual or urgent needs) and mutually agreed on, and there is a compatibility of mind and lifestyle - in other words given the right people and environs. I don't mind being committed to being home most or even all evenings. I lead a very quiet, natural lifestyle. I'm currently writing a book and working on an online doctoral degree. I currently hold a BA degree in environmental health, and a Master's in intercultural leadership and Community development.
