I am energetic, meticulous and reliable. I have extensive experience working with the elderly, including housekeeping, providing personal assistance in managing affairs. I enjoy promoting wellbeing and physical activities. I have also worked with children of all ages. I have extensive pet sitting experience.
In my spare time, I enjoy baking, cooking, teaching yoga and going for hikes.
My children are now adults. I used to babysit our neighbor's two children (slightly younger than mine) as I was a stay-at-home mom at the time. I held this position for five years. The position included meals, activities (indoor/outdoor), naps, toilet training, etc. I also did after-school care.
One of my children was born with a disability (spina bifida).
I also have experience caring for the elderly as my mother lived with us in her final years (with Parkinson's). In addition, I was a PSW for an elderly lady, this was a live-in shared position.
Lastly, I have extensive experience in pet care - mine and other peoples'.
I always had pets: cats, dogs, a bird and fish. I currently have one cat and a husky/german Sheppard mix. From experience, positive re-enforcement is the best approach with dogs. I enjoy walking/jogging with our dog.
I have done extensive dog-sitting (neighbors and family). I am good with small to large breeds.
