Hi my name is Sarah Williams and since I could remember I’ve always gotten pleasure from helping others. Believing that in life everyone needs help whether young or old from time to time. I was 16 when my grandma was diagnosed with Dementia and I’m glad i was able to be there for her as family should. No money needed i helped her from just sitting and talking to taking walks, trying my best to keep her mind from wondering. Also cooking meals and the cleaning of her apartment as well as self care and making sure she took her medicine daily as well as running errands for her and with her. During such time I learned something about myself I liked helping people and seeing the smile on their face and hearing it in their voice. Since then I’ve had customer service jobs working with the public always with a smile on my face and in my voice and plenty of help to give. For the last 3 yrs I’ve worked for Help At Home LLC as a Caregiver having different clients with different health issues ranging from Dementia to bedridden and anything in between and with each client I gave the same respect, energy and care as I would anyone. I am a hard worker and dedicated to helping make life a little easier for my clients if I can.
My last client Ms.Linda Pennington was a really nice lady so we fit perfect together because so am I. I worked for her for about 1yr and a half. Her health issues included her being bed bound due to poor circulation in her legs and also being a diabetic. My duties included up keep of the house,Cooking making sure she took her diabetic medicine, accompanying her to doctor appointments,Self Care and being a companion. I also worked for her twice a day during the day I would worked for her through Help At Home. At night I worked for her she needed extra help and I was happy to oblige.
