I am a certified medical assistant and I was fortunate to care for my grandmother for 3 years. I was employed as in home supportive services. I had a life scan in order to be approved by the state. She was insulin dependent, had Parkinson's which caused her to become unable to walk on her own, high blood pressure, dementia, and conversion disorder. She relied on me to do everything for her bathe her, administer her medication, was incontinent, prepared meals, did laundry, take her to doctor's appointments, and minimal exercise. I also was her hospice nurse when the time came. I have to say the best part was how close we became. When she passed, I realized I lost not only a grandma but my best friend. Currently I work an hour a day as a physical therapist working with a 73-year-old who broke her hip was hospitalized for 43 days and I am getting her up and walking again. I am very caring, compassionate and hope to be able to assist you in caring for your loved one.
