I'm a highly experienced, independent/freelance Respite Worker (I am not an
agency worker) living and working in St. John's, & its suburbs, & Holyrood.
I've complete CPI Non-Violent, Crisis Intervention training, and I have
extensive experience caring for adult individuals with developmental delays,
anger/impulse control issues, brain injuries, and social and economic
I have experience working with children "in care" for a local agency, and I've
worked independently for Eastern Health as a "Self Directed Babysitter" for a
child with complex behaviours.
Additionally I have experience working with school age children for the YWCA
(many years), and, I've worked with 'teens/youth with complex mental needs' for
Choices For Youth.
As well, I have private experience teaching drums to pre-school children.
I have great compassion for my clients, and in caring for them I emphasize
relationship building, and working to address their primary concerns at their
personal, specific level of need, at their pace and speed, and with focus on
their interests and activity.
I make the supreme effort to offer my clients a most personalized,
compassionate, familial experience - the kind of experience I would approve of
for my own Mother, Wife, or child.
I work closely with parents, social workers, teachers, landladys/landlords,
Newfoundland & Labrador Housing, Eastern Health (Community Services), and many
other agencies and community players in an effort to obtain the very best care,
resources, and quality of life for my clients.
