I Am A Caregiver/Companion For Elderly Women Who Need Help
Avg response < 7 hrs
A few years ago I cared for a lady whose dementia got progressively worse. I was her daily (M-F) companion and helped her with meal prep, housework, cat care and shopping. I engaged her in conversation and became someone who she looked forward to seeing each day. I also worked, in conjunction, with a local care-giving agency, helping provide caregivers for her during other parts of the day and on weekends. I was considered her "care coordinator".
Prior to that, I've cared for a few ladies who lived in Madison. They eventually moved to be closer to their families.
Recently, I was caring for an 89-year-old gentleman with Alzheimer's four days per week. I was with the family for the past two years. Unfortunately, his disease had worsened...
In addition to senior care giving, I've also helped out with children after school, providing rides to activities, helping with homework, running errands and whatever else the family needed.
