My grandmother was bedridden with rheumatoid arthritis and I assisted in her care (bathing, meal preparation, playing games, etc). My mother and father were both terminally ill with cancer and I cared for both of them as well. I have an Associate's degree in Applied Science and worked as a medical assistant for a couple of years. I had a tendency to form close bonds to my elderly patients.
The elderly and the young; they both have so much to teach us.
I would love an opportunity to help you care for your loved one.
