I have gained care giving experience these past five years through my husband's cancer. I am responsible for managing his medication, as well as coordinating his medical and chemo appointments. I have my own transportation and could run errands or shop for groceries. I know through experience, the need for gentle and positive care through illness or disabilities. My mother had dementia before passing in 2008, and I looked after her affairs for years. I was a hairdresser for 30, years and have provided my services to shut- ins and those in nursing homes and hospitals. I would be comfortable with light housekeeping. I am currently a part time companion and care giver to an 81-year-old lady, who needed someone after the death of her daughter. My services have included shopping trips, doctor's visits and personal care during illness. I frequently deliver meals to ensure that she maintain good nutrition. Our relationship spans nearly 10 years and she will be happy to provide a reference.
