My journey in caregiving began 8 years ago. During this time, I have worked with various clients with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, MS, colostomy, diabetes, hospice, dementia, etc. I am compassionate, reliable and patient which I think is important when taking care of the elderly. I enjoy taking care of the elderly as it is gratifying. It makes me feel good to know I was able to help an elderly person and make a difference in their life as they are in their sunset years. My favorite client was a sweet 84-year-old lady who I took care of for four years. She was alert and able to do most things for herself. I basically made meals for her, reminded her to take her medication, took her to doctor appointments and just enjoyed being her companion, watching TV together, having ice cream while watching movies, etc. Unfortunately, her health declined and she had to go to a nursing home where her daughter felt she would have 24-hour skilled nursing. A little about me, I love to travel, enjoy reading, meeting new people, dancing and listening to music.
