Elder Care in Ottawa, Ontario
I have worked with a diverse group of people, in varying settings, for 10 years. I am compassionate and enthusiastic about helping people. I believe in supporting individuals with respect to empower and maintain dignity. I am friendly, outgoing, and have a professional attitude. I enjoy working with people to attain their goals and ultimately, celebrate every success along the way.
I have my own business providing services to private clients, including cleaning, organizing, meal prep, personal care, errands, and appointment support among others. I have been doing this for about 6 years. I also provide casual support to adults with intellectual disabilities, and some with dual diagnoses with co-occuring mental health disabilities and/or physical disabilities through OCAPDD in Ottawa and in the past through a few different agencies including St.Stephens Residences of Ottawa, Innovative Community Support Services, and North Hastings Community Integration Association. I support individuals with all aspects of daily living within my developmental service worker role and have 11 years experience in the field. I also was employed casually by Hastings Centennial Manor as an Activities Aide for a little over a year prior to moving to Ottawa - working with elderly, individuals with Alzheimers,and individuals requiring varying levels of physical and emotional support.
