Elder Care in Salt Lake City, Utah

I'm an
Individual
Overview: Hi, my name is Heidi, nice to meet you! I am searching for a companion caregiver job in Salt Lake City, Utah. or close by area. I am a reliable, compassionate individual. My experience caring for elderly, disabled, and health compromised individuals, has qualified me in a unique way, to help care for your family member. I would prefer to work with a female if bathing and bathroom help is needed. I am looking for a daytime or possibly overnight schedule, mainly Monday through Thursday with most weekends off. I am not concrete in this as I have some leeway in rearranging my schedule and I would try to meet your needs. I also would be willing to travel with clients if necessary from time to time. Services And Training: I am looking to find a position in elder care or companionship for someone who may need help with preparing/ serving meals, bathing, dressing, light housework, transportation to appointments, post-operation care, help with medications, and or other light duties. I do have personal transportation available. My Previous Experience: I have been helping take care of senior family members and friends off and on for years. My late husband was ill with diabetes, congestive heart failure, dementia, and other health issues, and was mainly home-bound for 25 years, I was his sole caregiver. I took care of my best friend for months when she was ill from cancer, and then on hospice. I learned how to feed her with a feeding tube, and in general, took care of her as her children were teenagers and her husband had Alzheimer's. After my friend passed away I took care of her husband. I have also taken care of an elderly neighbor lady who fell and broke both of her arms and needed someone to feed, bathe, dress, and in general take total care of her for a few months while she recovered. I took care of my father when he was on hospice after a stroke and my mother could not care for him. and I also took care of my brother-in-law for 5 years as he has diabetes, congestive heart failure, and lost use of his right side, and other self-care,s because of a stroke until he went into the hospital form more complicated issues. Even though I am not a nurse or CNA, I do have a little bit of education in the health field with my associate's degree in health sciences - health information technology. But as you can see I am very experienced at helping and taking care of people who need help because of age, mobility, or health-related problems. I also have a background in childcare through the experience of raising 4 children, running my own daycare for years, having numerous nieces and nephews, (some with autism) as well as having been a foster parent. If you feel I would be a good fit I would be pleased to hear from you. Let's Connect: Call or text even better, and I'll respond ASAP!
