Elder Care in Saint Louis, Michigan

About Me: Hi my name is Laurie! I'm a highly experience caregiver looking to provide my services to a family in the Alma/St. Louis, Michigan area. My experience started back in the 80's when I began providing elder care in various Nursing Homes while doing my on-site training for my Nurse's Aid certification After obtaining my certification, I began working in Adult Foster Care homes as a Manager/Caregiver. In these Nursing and Adult Foster Care Homes I developed many skills. I learned how to take vital signs, assist with showers/dressing/changing, provide dementia/alzheimer's care, do wound care, give medication or provide medication reminders, cook meals, do grocery shopping, house-cleaning, laundry, etc. In the 90's I began working with developmentally/intellectually disabled individuals in various settings. I worked in residential group homes and day programs. While working in these various l settings I obtained more knowledge to enhance my caregiving skills. In addition to providing the services already listed above I also scheduled, transported, attended and followed through on all medical appointments, planned and encouraged participation in recreational activities, assisted and encouraged participation in taking care of individual personal care and activities of daily living. In addition to providing a wide variety of personal care services I also am skilled in documentation. I have experience in developing and writing up life skill plans, medical care plans and following through with the documentation of plans. I am also a highly organized person with a "can do" attitude. When I am not applying my skills in a job setting, I consistently use such skills in all areas of my personal life to maintain and sharpen my skills so as to be not only a great candidate for employment but also a valuable asset as an employee. My availability is flexible. Service Abilities: I am comfortable doing physical therapy, simple bowel care, personal care, medication administration, cooking, laundry, light housekeeping, running errands, shopping, assisting with medical appointments, etc. Regarding my history, I have many years of experience providing services as a home caregiver. Booking An Appointment: Call, text or email and I will respond shortly.

Recommendations

Michael Snarski

I have known Laurie for approximately 10+ years. We did community work together. Laurie is attentive and concerned about details and has a strong work ethic. She is easy to get along with and responds well to feedback. She has experience in providing assistance to those with disabilities and is rather patient, from my observations.

Alyson Saboe

Laurie is a strong, dedicated hard worker. She is very caring and always put her best foot forward. Laurie always offer to work extra hours and is very reliable. It was a great loss to loose her. In addition Laurie is a wonderful person and friend.
