About Me

I was a nurse back in my country, the Republic of Georgia, and I worked in the emergency room. I loved to see people happy and well after an urgent visit. I also used to take care of my grandmother who had dementia. I made her feel very comfortable in her own home, since she refused to be in assisted living or a nursing home. As a caregiver, I am very cautious when it comes to fragile situations, and I am very attentive to my client's medical needs. I always keep the family or physician updated by taking vital signs. I am trustworthy and very efficient at what I do. I like to keep my environment clean by doing light housekeeping and keeping my client engaged through conversations. I like to go the gym, read books, and watch movies during my time off from work. I like to go shopping, too.

Recommendations

Lela works a few hours every day with my mother and has been with us since 2016. My mom has a heart condition and really can't be left alone for any long time period, so we hired Lela to help her. My mom really loves having Lela around. Lela is very caring, loving, and responsible. She keeps the home very neat and clean. She's also a great cook. She's been great for us since the moment we met her, but we know she is looking for work with more hours. We will be sad to see her go, but recommend her highly.

Lela has been caring for my adult son, who uses a wheelchair and needs help with all activities of daily living. He has a full-time caregiver, but Lela fills in many weekends, and other days as needed. She started with us in 2014, and it's been over 4 years. I give her the highest ratings possible. She is kind, compassionate, smart, conscientious, and attentive. She is pleasant to be around and is always learning new things. She helps with my son's physical needs -- bathing, dressing, and feeding, and also is a companion for him. Lela knows how to use his nebulizer and what to do when he aspirates his food. I'm happy to recommend her.
