Recently I've had the great opportunity to take care of an 88-year-old man who is now in a facility. Duties included bathing, toileting, dressing, medications, housekeeping and organizing (beyond tidying), meal prep, running errands and taking to Dr. appointments. We experienced many hours of chatting about life, current events, looking items up on the internet and figuring out what music to listen to. Length of time 8 months. I also had the honor of taking care of my 92-year-old mother in law for a short time who had dementia and has now passed on. The experience, warmth and love far outweighed anything I have done in my life. We laughed and cried about life experiences and she needed some assistance getting dressed, bathroom needs, combing hair, dealing with her medications and meal prep. housekeeping and organizing, pet care, keeping her active and taking to Dr. appointments were other aspects. Length of time - 1 month. Flexible on start/end hours, able to work every other weekend.
