I received my Home Health Aide certificate from Comfort Keepers and shortly after that, I was asked to take care of my 98-year-old mother-in-law in my home. She had advanced Alzheimer's, coupled with Sun downer's Syndrome. I was her 24/7 caregiver who encompassed every possible need a person could have. After 11 months, she passed away with her family at her side. I feel my life was enriched for having had the experience of making a difference in her life and allowing her to be cared for in a home setting, with her family around her, rather than in a nursing home. Prior to this, I had taken care of my fiancee for 3 years, who was a disabled veteran who ultimately died of lung cancer. I am a compassionate person with a heart for the sick and elderly who sometimes just need some help to remain in their own homes. Care. com reflects I have worked for one family...... when in fact I was hired directly off this site for 3+. I have worked for others, as well, privately.
