Thank you for taking the time to read my Bio. I am a stay at home mom of three boys. Our oldest is in college, our middle will graduate in June and our youngest is a sophmore. I am looking for a position that will allow me to get out during the day and would like to spend my time taking care of others, as that is what I do best.
I have a college degree in business administration, but aside from a couple internships at Dow Corning while in college, I have not been employed in this capacity, as I chose to stay home and raise our family.
However, I do have a long history of elderly care. My husband's grandmother lived with us for over 15 years. Sadly, she suffered from dementia the last 4-5 years of her life and I was her primary caregiver. It was our choice to take care of her at home and as many of you know, there are not a lot of respite care options out there.
I have the complete gamit of caregiver experience from changing, feeding, bathing, medication administration, companionship, etc. I am looking for a position that will allow me to use these skills and build upon them because situations are ever changing and evolving.
My best qualities are my patience and ability to care. I feel with these as a base there is nothing that cannot be tackled. Every situation is as unique as the person living it.
Please feel free to contact me any time. I am available on short notice and would love to hear from you regarding the special person in your life needing care.
I appreciate your time and consideration.
