I worked as a personal assistant for the same gentleman for 9 years. He became disabled, and bed bound, after 5 years, due to an injury. He also had COPD and was an alcoholic. My duties included managing medications and doctors appointments, obtaining Medicare and home health services, monitoring his vital signs, wound care management, daily self care like dressing and bathing, and most importantly supporting him in a respectful and compassionate manner so that he could live each day with dignity and companionship. I was also responsible for household maintenance/management, paying bills and expense reports, grocery shopping, cooking, and personal shopping.
I listened to, and anticipated, his needs, specifically with his chronic health conditions and business matters. I regularly problem solved and organized to achieve outcomes that decreased financial, emotional, and mental stress for him, and improved his quality of life.
