I am willing to provide respite care for your loved one if you need to go out, have appointments, or just need a break! I was primary caregiver for my father in the last year of his life so have experience with dementia along with physically helping the person and keeping them company or engaged in an activity. I did work at a nursing home for two years serving meals to the elderly and transporting them back and forth to their rooms. I relate very well to them even though I am a retired teacher of first graders!! Please contact me should you need help.
