Fifteen years experience. For the first four years I had on-the-job training caring for an MS patient who required total care (quadriplegic) and since then have worked with elderly clients doing everything from simple daily or weekly shopping/cooking, companionship, driving, bathing, dressing, etc . . . to nursing care for patients who are in bed or have very limited mobility . . . to full on end-of-life hospice care. I have worked in various capacities as a sole caregiver, a member of caregiving teams, and as a manager for teams of caregivers.

Will not work with clients or families with alcohol or drug addiction issues, a history of physical or verbal abuse. Also cannot work in an environment where there are smokers even if they smoke outside. I have chemical sensitivities to some cleaning products.
Understand some French.
None. I am healthy for being 60 years young. I would also insist on the use of a mechanical lift in some circumstances.

I also have a cell phone: 360-298-2425
This work comes naturally to me and I enjoy it very much. Finding a good match seems to be a matter of chemistry, intention & good luck for all involved and every caregiving situation unique challenges. I have a high respect for confidentiality and HIPAA regulations when working with clients in their personal environment. At this time I am able to do overnight and longer day shifts.
