I'd like to say I raised 4 children, ages 37 to 14, and cared for 4 elderly relatives. I am married to a man with elderly parents, aunts and uncles. I decided to care for them one by one in their homes, as long as I could, then eventually mine. Only when I could no longer physically provide them what they needed, did we need to place them in other care facilities. We felt strongly that being around family, as long as they could, was best for all of us. I had young children at the time, and was able to do this. This taught me how to deal with Alzheimer's, general memory loss, and loss of bodily functions.
Now, I have more free time and energy to give to an elderly adult, and would truly love to become part of someone's life, to help them out.
I love watching movies, cleaning house (seriously) and light cooking. I enjoy shopping, playing cards, watching movies, bingo and puzzles.
In the past I provided Senior care (personal relatives) for 3 people in my home and theirs. I am a Mom of 4 children, ranging from 37 to 21 and Grandma of an Autistic 7-year-old.
