Assist my 86-year mom who lives with severe pain and limited mobility due to a back operation. Daily, I prepare dinner, ensure she takes her meds and prepare breakfast and meds for next morning. I complete shopping and help with daily tasks.
I interact with many of the complex residents and provide pet-walking and errand services. M, I spend my evenings visiting with many of them because it is so enjoyable. Prior to my mother moving to a senior center, she and I cared for my father who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 43 and lived to age 64.
My mom and I gave him round-the-clock care, ranging from preparing 3 meals a day, changing his position to prevent bed sores, emptying his catheter bag, and completing any task that would increase his comfort and extend his life. Our care kept him home for 21 years. I have worked with mentally and physically challenged young adults in a group home providing life skills, job training, mentoring, and support. The past 15 years.
