Elder Care in Tahlequah, Oklahoma
I provide companionship and excellent personal care for our Elders and those that are home-bound. I will spend quality time with your loved ones, engaging in whatever activities they enjoy, while offering support, caretaking, and gentle redirections, when needed. See below for qualifications. I have extensive experience and training working with older populations. I worked as a Direct Support Professional providing home health support for 5 years. I cared for individuals with developmental and physical disabilities in their own homes and assisted them with activities of daily living, including grooming, housekeeping, medication management, cooking, and companionship. I have worked with people experiencing memory loss, decreased mobility or loss of mobility, dementia, Alzheimer's, mealtime challenges, and a variety of health needs. I earned my degree in Developmental Psychology, which allowed me to take several classes on the physical and mental changes we all go through as we grow older. After college, I worked for 6 years in Behavioral Health and then 6 years in education. I am transitioning into trying to work from home, building my own schedule for the needs of my family. So, I can be flexible. I hold certifications in Mealtime Challenges, Physical Assistance, Case Management, CPR/First Aid, and more! Having been raised by my great grandparents and then caring for them when the time came, I have a deep respect for elders and will treat your family member like my own. I enjoy spending time with seniors and learning about their lives and hear stories about the past. If you are looking for someone that is patient and kind that will enjoy spending time with your loved one, but also has experience, I would love to speak with you!
