Home Caregiver Available Full-time. Personal Care, Housekeeping, Meal Prep, And Running Errands.
I'm 36 years old and a mother of two teenage boys. I was raised by my grandparents in Stone County on a dairy farm. My grandmother developed Alzheimer's and also had diabetes. My grandpa developed Parkinson's and ALS. I was a full time caregiver for both until they passed away. Care included checking blood sugar, drawing insulin, helping with all personal care, housekeeping, and meal prep. I worked as a team with my mother care for a patient on hospice for over a year doing same tasks and also working with hospice nurses. I worked for a year and 3 months caring for a lady with dementia and had suffered from 2 strokes, also caring for her husband also in their home, who had Alzheimer's. I did grocery shopping for them, drove them to doctor appointments and salon appointments. She needed total care but her husband only needed part care. Housekeeping, all meal prep, bathing, and outside yard work was all included. I enjoy giving one on one care that I believe everyone deserves.
