I started out as a volunteer in a nursing home during middle school and high school. I had a passion for working with the elderly and with children. During most of my life growing up my mother cared for both my grandmothers. My nana was forgetful and had Alzheimer's and cancer. My grandmother had diabetes and took insulin and tested regularly for blood sugar levels, as well as many medications and a strict diet to regulate her levels. She was unable to walk steady alone, unable to bathe, eat and move around without complete assistance. I was able to have the honor of taking care of them, hands on all the time in order to give my mother some time to relax. We shared the responsibility for many years. I am very patient, very loving and gentle. I have experience professionally caring for elderly.
