Profile

I have been a caregiver for seniors for longer then 7 years. I believe that our older population should be treated with respect,patience and dignity. If, as a caregiver, I can give even one senior the ability to remain in their home among familiar surroundings for as long as possible and give that person's family peace of mind knowing their loved one was treated with the respect,dignity and the patience they deserved, then I will have fulfilled my responsibility as a caregiver.

Related Interests & Hobbies

I enjoy reading, playing organ or keyboard, making things, crafts jewelry etc. I love animals and live with friends who have 4 poodles, 2 cats and 2 doves. They were generous enough to allow me to have my own little female kitten who is spayed, and in training to be just a permanent inside cat, so being around dogs, cats etc. would be fun, and I would enjoy caring for someone's pet as part of the whole that keeping an elderly or senior comfortable in their home.In the summer and fall Minnesota has a lot of community festivals and of course the beauty of the leaves in fall. If a senior is able I would enjoy sharing these times with my client.

Other Information

I have cared for members of the Senior population the majority of my adult life and find each to be a lasting memory in my heart. I also believe in looking out for those who would take advantage of seniors and would not hesitate to let my imediate supervisor know of my concern and from there if necessary the proper local and state agencies that deal with possible abuse situations to the elderly.
