I am experienced caregiver who loves taking care of elderly people. They are our parents, grandparents and God's gift to all of us who can play and smile with them. I have 9 years of experience in this field. I have 7 years of experience as a live-in and I love the job so much. It is a step on my way to becoming a nurse, my passion. I am a warm, loving, passionate, caring, and understanding young lady who looks forward to helping care for your loved ones as much as possible when you are not able, due to work or whatever life throws at you. I am seeking a full-time job, but part-time is okay as well. I know everyone likes to be taken care of without any rush and I will provide that for you.

We were fortunate enough to employ Charila in spring 2019 as the weekend live-in caregiver for mom. Mom was battling lung cancer and toward the end went into hospice. Determined to keep her comfortable, we chose in-home hospice and began the difficult task of vetting and hiring private care givers to provide 24/7 care. Duties included bathing mom, administering medication, companionship, meal prep and feeding, diapering/changing, turning her every 2-3 hours and bedsore care/dressing. We were grateful to have found Charila whose experience and references made her an ideal choice. She provided full care to our mom competently, with a quiet confidence and humor. Sundown syndrome and dementia made her mom's evening transition and bedtime particularly challenging. Nonetheless, Charila maintained her professionalism and demonstrated deep compassion. Having to entrust my mom's care to 3 individuals was stressful initially. But Charila proved to be a team player.

I have experience working with my own elderly parents as well as other elderly individuals that are not related to me including those with dementia concerns. The services I am willing to provide are: companionship, meal preparation, grocery shopping, running errands, transportation, accompanying to appointments, cleaning, cooking, laundry, medication management, grooming, and dressing. I am very passionate about this type of work because I care for the well being of this age group and have comparable experience. Simply put: I enjoy it! Although I do not have a motor vehicle check and criminal background check through care. com, I hold a current foster parent license and have been well vetted through these checks and others.

I am writing this note of recommendation for Michelle J., who was my care taker from Care.com for two months. Michelle was always kind and compassionate. She completed light household chores, did my grocery shopping, and weeded my garden. She encouraged me to do more exercises to help me deal with my Parkinson's disease and took me to doctors' appointments. In addition, she took her job seriously and was dependable, flexible and positive. I loved seeing photos of her family and sharing my family with her as well. I would rate Michele as a first-class aide! Sheila M. August 23, 2020
