I have always been drawn to people much older than me. I'm not exactly sure why, but it may be because my grandmother died when my mom was only 9 years old. I'm like a magnet to elderly people because I love to listen to stories they share and it gives me wisdom beyond my years. I just love, love, love elderly people! I've worked for in Memphis for about a year and I kept my pastor's mother for the entire summer before I left Memphis to move to Gallatin, TN in the Fall of 2012. When I worked for Comfort Keepers, I primarily picked clients up from their home and carried them to and from doctors appointments, carried them on various errands, etc. When I cared for my pastor's mother, she would drop her off at my home in the morning and picked her up around 5:30 in the evening. I fixed her breakfast, lunch and a snack and we pretty much laughed, talked, watched TV, and enjoyed each other's company everyday. She has dementia, but she was a joy to have her around.
