Part Time Or Full Time Caregiver
I have been caring for the seniors again for about a year. I worked with Sheila's Angels going from patient to patient with different needs while I also worked nights at Gracious Living caring for 2 elderly patients. That got to be more than I could handle while I have a 14-year-old living at home and was also in the process of moving so I took on 1 patient 3 days a week for 2 hours each day. I have cared for another patient full time with supra nuclear palsey. 3 1/2 years. She had a feeding tube and was bed ridden. I also assisted with the care of my father, mother and brother. Most of my patients I have had to assist with baths or give bed baths, cook for, feed, change diapers, give and assist with meds, clean and dress peg tube, bed sores, run errands, light housekeeping, laundry, change bed linen, etc. I love to take care of the elderly and I do it with passion because they deserve it and I love them. It is a wonderful feeling to know that my patients look forward to seeing me and that I make a difference inn their lives. I hope I never need the help but hope if I ever do, I have someone just like me.
