Mother And Caretaker
I am a mother to 2 sons (22 and 25) and for 5 years I was a stay-in caretaker for a now 19-year-old special needs female, but also took care of her brother (now 13). Now, I am an extended day care taker at Tuckahoe Elementary School where I care for kindergarten and 1st graders.
As a caretaker, I woke her up every morning and would follow her through the entirety of her morning routine. I helped her brush her teeth and face, use the toilet, wash up, moisturize, and change. I would prepare her breakfast, vitamins, and help feed her if she isn't eating, or doing so too slowly, then make sure she had everything before I saw her off to the bus. I'd wait for her to arrive from the bus after school, change her clothes, and prepare her meal and vitamins and do the same for dinner. Every other day I'd give her a shower. I'd also be with her during activity time and encourage her independence when I could.
