My grandmother lived with my family for 4 years before her Alzheimer's became too much. I assisted her with general mobility, showering, bathroom duties, cooking, and companionship, basically whatever she needed.
I also worked for 2 years with an elderly man that was paralyzed from the neck down. I assisted with medications, dealing with doctors and nurses, keeping a schedule and recording everything, cleaning/sanitizing everything, working with a nebulizer, a vent and tracheotomy, turning, bathing, getting into and out of a wheelchair.
I genuinely care for and get along with the older generations. I believe that they have a lot of wisdom to share, and our society doesn't give them the credit or time that they deserve. I have also served overseas in the military, and have a deep respect for the men and women that paved the way.
