Profile

I have been a caregiver for three years, working primarily with individuals who face memory challenges, both male and female. My experience includes working with clients with mobility difficulties (wheelchair bound / walker) and those with none. Previous caregiving duties have included offering companionship, meal preparation, medication reminders, bathing and dressing assistance, light housekeeping, driving on errands and to doctor’s visits, accompanying on walks and a variety of other practical tasks. I enjoy spending time with my clients and find it a rewarding job.
