I was a stay home mother of two girls and had to become a caregiver for my older daughter, who was hit by a car at age 14, and left with a severe traumatic brain injury. She had to relearn how to do everything from waking, talking, reading, and writing, to caring for herself. She is 22 now, and self sufficient.
I also spent several years helping my elderly grandmother on a regular basis with everything. Took her to medical appointments, medical procedures, took her shopping, did her shopping, prepared meals, did laundry, helped with light housekeeping, made sure she took her medication and more.
