I spent 3 months living in with my Grandmother for Hospice, my self and one other took shifts caring for her, housekeeping, meals, medication management, lawn work, and paying bills. In three months, she improved and moved to assisted living.
My mother in law had surgery and contracted a serious infection. She lived with me for the next 3 months. She suffered from dementia and C-Dif. She needed meals, bathing, medication management, and companionship. I provided housework, meals, payed bills, groceries, travel to appointments, personal care for the next several years.
My brother in law passed from cancer, I supplied respite care for my sister. I offered housekeeping, errands, cooking, pet care, lawn care, and sitting up during the night. For 4 months.
My friend moved into my home for hospice care for 10 weeks. I provided personal care and companionship.
Sometimes, life offers you an opportunity to find your passion. I was fortunate to find mine.
