Part-Time / Full-Time Senior Caregiver
My first job was taking care of a family friend, she was 89 when I started caring for her. During our time together we would share stories on our lives, hers' far more interesting than mine. I went from calling her Ms. K. to grandma in a short amount of time seeing as I spent more time with her than my own grandparents.
By the end of our time together, she had developed dementia. I learned at 17 how to properly care for a dementia patient. I like to care for seniors because I like to know for sure what care this person is getting. Patient, understanding, and loving care.
