Caring for the elderly has been a life changing experience and a duty for which I am proud of. I've been in the health-care field for about 5 years, initiating as a part time summer job while in college, for an elderly patient diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Caring for my patient made me realize I wanted to have a career in the health care field, motivating me to attend college to become a registered nurse. Since then, I've been caring for the elderly with health issues like; Dementia, Alzheimer's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, cardiac issues, Diabetes, etc. I am 5"11 and 200 lbs, which has come in handy with helping heavy patients to transfer from wheelchair to bed, transferring to vehicles, traveling in an aircraft, etc. Also, I have done light housekeeping, easy meal preparation and helped the patients spouse in anyway possible, for I know the difficult it is. The last family I worked for, I cared for an elderly gentleman with multiple sclerosis and mild dementia, and handled house duties as well. Unfortunately the patient passed away, but it was an honor to work for such a wonderful man who was a scholar and entrepreneur. It's time to help someone new.
