I have 3 years experience working with, and caring for, a wonderful woman in her 90's with Alzheimer's. I started off a few hours a day. As her disease progressed, and need for more assistance grew, I was able to Put together, and manage, an amazing team for 24 hour care. This consisted of Meal preparation, grocery shopping, assist individual with Daily activities, such as showers, dressing, brushing teeth, caring for pets, changing depends, house cleaning/upkeep, Dr. appts, hospital stays, medication management, talking, to and working with, medical personnel; Dr., EMT, home care nurses, PT, OT, skin tears and wound care.
