Vicki J

PROFESSIONAL CAREGIVER

Vicki has been a member of our team since March 2017. She came on board to work with a client who needed full-time care. The care the client required consisted mainly of companionship, transportation, meal prep and medication reminders. In addition to a caregiver, Vicki’s first client with us required someone to fulfill the roles of an assistant and care advocate. Strong attention to detail, the ability to schedule appointments, keep an organized calendar and coordinate outings were essential. The client also required accompaniment to events, doctors’ appointments, social engagements and other outings. Because of her attention to detail and ability to anticipate care needs, Vicki was a perfect fit for this assignment. In addition to communicating with her teammates at Private Home Care, Vicki also updated her client’s Certified Care Manager of any relevant information pertaining to her client’s care. She kept detailed notes, as instructed by her client’s family and Care Manager.

Vicki spent many years traveling and living abroad, most recently in Shanghai and Saipan. She also has plenty of custom service experience as well as general business knowledge, having worked predominately in the printing and floral industries. For a time, Vicki co-owned and operated a successful floral business. In 2017, Vicki contemplated a job change and applied for a position with us.

“After putting the desire to shift careers out into the universe, the employment ad from PHC was the first thing to come across my radar. It was a perfect fit for me.”

Vicki became a caregiver as a way of giving back, because she wanted to work with people and make them feel valued for their personality, talents and legacy. Vicki is very passionate about her clients. She knows how to organize her days so that her work is as meaningful. Vicki believes,

“The trust built between client and caregiver is profoundly satisfying. It's human-scale work and uses a surprising array of skills, as well as basic common sense and compassion.”

Vicki loves learning and is an avid reader. She enjoys spending time with her family, playing board games and cooking.
