Tessa’s Bio

My very first "job" was working with an elderly neighbor in her home when I was 13. I assisted her with her medications, prepared her meals, performed all housekeeping duties (including laundry), read and watched television with her, went for walks, assisted her with hygenic duties, getting to bed, etc. That lasted for the summer before her Alzheimer's required her to have 24 hour care in a skilled nursing facility.

I have done the same things for my grandmother up until a few years ago when she also required around-the-clock assistance.

I would absolutely love an opportunity to be a caregiver for an older adult. I understand how vital it is for members of the golden generation to maintain as much independence as possible without sacrificing safety and quality of life. I have a few years of experience in dealing with the obstacles that come with dementia and Alzheimer's, and would be comfortable working with your family member who may suffer from it.

I also have a well behaved three year old daughter who would be able to visit and entertain, if it would be an appropriate time for such activity. She visits the nursing home with me regularly, and let me just say... children can heal broken and disheartened spirits.

If my profile speaks to you on a deeper level than simple text, I would appreciate getting to know you and your family, and hopefully become an extended member myself!
