Part-Time Care Giving Help For The Holidays
Avg response < 24 hrs
As a college graduate in the field of education and granddaughter of four grandparents who had conditions from dementia to emphysema, I enjoy being around people and appreciate the opportunity to make the world a better place by doing what I can to improve the lives of others. When a friend of the family was in a pinch for a caregiver in January of 2014, she asked if I could step in. For a year and a half, I provided companionship, transportation, and care for a woman in her 90's with COPD and vision impairment. Tasks included administration of daily meds, routine housekeeping tasks, basic food preparation, and lots of reading to her. The other caregivers (there were six of us around the clock) jokingly referred to me as "Rebekah of Sunnybrook Farm" due to my seemingly unshakable pleasant nature. My availability is limited, as I teach music after school and travel frequently, but I like to fill any excess time with care-giving.
