My name is Gina, and I am seeking a live-in caregiver/companion position in Toluca Lake only. Will consider nearby Studio City or West Burbank. I have some medical training (I was in my 4th year of pre-med when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, so I had to quit). I am seeking room and board in exchange for housekeeping, cooking, pet care, driving, shopping, errands, and personal assistance (bathing, dressing, etc. if needed). organizing, and general companionship (movies, activities, etc.). I am flexible about salary if I'm allowed to work outside of the home occasionally. I am also fine with either a TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT arrangement.

I'm a 49 year old female, college educated, responsible and honest. I am drug and alcohol free, spiritual, and very easy to be around. I'm fun/funny, and I enjoy the company of seniors. I have a lot of experience with seniors, as well as chronic illness. Although I do have some medical training, I am not a licensed medical professional. I can help administer meds, but not intravenously. I can prepare healthy meals and nutritional guidance, as well as accompany to doctor's appointments. I am not a nurse, and I would prefer to be treated as a friend and companion instead of a medical live-in.

On a personal note, I have survived cancer twice, so I know more about the treatment than the average caregiver. I am happy to provide assistance to someone who is going through aggressive medical therapy. I understand the emotional toll, therefore I am more equipped to deal with mood swings. I want to provide friendly, light-hearted friendship/companionship which includes activities and outings (if possible), or I can respect someone's privacy and solitude and keep to myself unless needed.

I have been a business owner for the last 17 years in Los Angeles, and I recently lost my business and my home. I am a bit down on my luck, and want to change direction. My background is in the Arts and Entertainment, specifically the music and film industries, so I am versed in that language. I would like to find a safe, positive environment that will allow me to write during the evenings, after my work is done for the day. I am a very quiet and respectful person, and will stay in my room and out of the way. I am single and have no children, but I do love kids and they love me. I am happy to help with the little ones too!

I must also be very upfront about the fact that I have a cat, and she is my "baby." I will not consider for one minute giving her up. If my host is OK with having a cat in the home, even if just in my room only, I am flexible about everything else. I have experience, I can provide references, and I'm happy to submit to a background check and drug test, of course. I have a driver's license, but my car is not reliable. I'm working on that :-)

If you or anyone you know is looking for someone like me to take care of your elderly loved one, please pass this along. I am available immediately. PLEASE DON'T RESPOND IF YOU ARE NOT LOCATED IN TOLUCA LAKE/STUDIO CITY/WEST BURBANK
