I am just back in the States from Singapore where I worked as an art teacher for 2.5 years. I am taking a break from teaching and following some artistic pursuits. I am looking for a p/t job.
I have worked as a care taker at different times in my life. One was a live in position for a woman who had cancer. I cooked, cleaned and assisted her in driving and other needs. It was a very amicable situation.
I also cared for an elderly woman I knew growing up. She was healthy, but needed help around the house and with driving.
I also took care of my own mother near the end of her life for one year. This involved more intensive medical/ health needs. Assisted with medication, personal care and appointments, to name a few.
Most recently I worked with a woman in her 80's assisting her to appointments and watching out for her physical safety.
I am a very helpful and compassionate type person and would do well working with your loved ones. You would be happy with my work.
