I believe all of us need a little help at some point in our lives. I have always loved working with seniors. I learned early on that compassion, understanding and empathy is due to everyone we have the pleasure of coming in contact with. Many years ago, I had the honor of caring for my husbands grandmother, through her gradual memory loss and Parkinson's. Once Alzheimer's disease and Dementia completely took over, this frail woman needed me more than anything else in this world. I enjoyed my times with her and know she enjoyed her time with me, despite the fact that I needed to continuously remind her who I was. That didn't matter to me though. I have an innate love and respect for the elderly. Besides patience and understanding, I feel it is more important to allow people to keep their pride and dignity in tack. I am humbled by elderly people of my community. They each have their own struggles and issues, but they are alive and continue to thrive and I just want to be around to make it a little easier for them. I'm a mom of 3 (18, 9, 8) and my dad (a senior) is a Veteran. I'm very well aware of seniors needs and would love the opportunity to assist you. Thank you and be well.
