Now the last 3 years I have returned to taking care of the elderly in their homes. I sit with a lady that was 82 and had a little bit of dementia. I cared for her 8 months. The duties consisted of making and going with her to doctor visits. I put her on bedpan, assisted with medicine, transfer from bed to wheelchair using a hoist. I fixed meals, did laundry, light house work. I also check her oxygen to make sure it was operating correctly. I dressed and undressed her to go to & from doctor visit's. She also needed to take a small oxygen tank with her to doctor visits. I would put the small tank in her caring case that she had for it, and make sure it had oxygen in tank. Then I would turn it on for her to take with her on doctor visits or were ever she needed to go. After that I took care of a lady that had fallen and broke her hip.
