I am a self - employed companion sitter currently working with the elderly in long term care facilities. I have been caring for my clients for 10 years and do a variety of things for them. i take them out sometimes, we do activiities taliored to the needs of each person. If they are in a home (long term care) I try my best for them to do things which will allow them to meet other to have stimulation and to be able to use anything they have not lost through age or disease. In other words I do encourage thier independence as it allows. I am also an advocate for my clients. I have had some of my clients 8 years or more. I come with many references as well. I also take course on dementia, palliative care, and alzhiemers as well as communication with elderly. I have recieved marks in the 100 percent for these courses and continue to upgade as I need to. If you think I can help you please do not hesitate to call me and we can talk about your loved ones needs. I am currently working out of Granite Ridge in Stitsville but an not afflitated with them and also Garden Terrace. I am looking for clients in the west end of Ottawa.
