Recently I looked after a 91 year old man with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's and dementia. Specifically: I drew up, reviewed and adjusted his care plan to ensure he had the best of care at all times. I was attentive to his needs and very patient as his thinking and verbal skills were affected. He was non verbal but did communicate clearly from time to time. I prompted him to swallow and was patient as often it would take 30 minutes or more to feed him. I spoke to him clearly and slowing using very few words so he could understand what was happening. I learnt his signals for when he wanted a drink, needed personal care, sleep and rest. I made sure he was in a comfortable environment at all times. Initially he had some limited mobility and could walk short distances with support. In time I arranged with the occupational therapist for him to have a hoist. This helped with transfers from bed to commode and commode to chair for his morning routine and with transfers for his bedtime routine. I supported him with feeding, personal care including showering, dressing and grooming. I carried out a range of housekeeping tasks like cleaning, washing, laundry, cooking and preparing his meals, administering and ordering his medication, arranging doctors' appointments and medical checks. The feedback from the family was that I provided outstanding care. My hobbies are cooking, reading and writing. I look forward to meeting you and discussing with you how I can help deliver exceptional care for your loved one/s.
