Approximately 14 years ago, I started caring for my elderly in-laws. My mother-in-law suffered from emphysema and COPD. She was on portable oxygen and confined to a wheelchair. My father-in-law, also wheelchair bound, was diagnosed with neuropathy. Later, I became a single mom caring for my daughter who had severe asthma and a rare eye disease.

Approximately 14 years ago, I started caring for my elderly in-laws. My mother-in-law suffered from emphysema and COPD. She was on portable oxygen and confined to a wheelchair. My father-in-law, also wheelchair bound, was diagnosed with neuropathy. Later, I became a single mom caring for my daughter who had severe asthma and a rare eye disease. In May 2011, I completed my Associate's degree in Medical Assisting and graduated Summa cum Laude. For approximately a year, while going to school, I cared for an 85-year-old woman with Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) and dementia issues. She was bedridden and needed 24/7 care. She passed away February of 2011, in her home. She was an amazing woman and is dearly missed. She helped me completely understand what it means to have empathy, and showed me how much love I have to give. On April 28, 2012 I lost another dear one. She was a 91-year-old woman who lost her battle with severe dementia. I was with her from the time she came home from the hospital after a bad fall until the day she passed away, one year later. Her and I became fast friends and I loved her very much. Heaven gained yet another angel. In addition, in the past several years, I provided respite care for a hospitalized elderly man with dementia who had hip surgery due to a fractured hip, a 90-year-old man with dementia, a 76-year-old woman with dementia, and a 95-year-old woman suffering with the onset of dementia. I am currently caring for a 89-year-old man recuperating from a severely broken hip, a 88-year-old woman who suffers from neuropathy, and a 92-year-old wheelchair bound man with dementia. From time to time I assist in the care of a completely bedridden 88-year-old woman with dementia, and an 81-year-old man who is wheelchair bound. This is exactly what I am supposed to do in life and I absolutely love it.
