I am a registered Medical Technologist and worked in the medical field (laboratories) for 17 years. The rest of my working career(18yrs)was with elementary school children. I would love to be a companion, run errands, and possibly do light housework for someone. My ideal position would be to provide company and assistance several times a week, helping someone to continue living in their home. I realized how important this is while caring for my 80-year-old dad. While living alone and running errands, he fell, suffering a head trauma and ultimately having to live out his life in a nursing facility. I wish we had help to do routine chores and be company for him (both my brother and I lived out of town) to prevent these circumstances. Hopefully, I can be that person for someone else, helping them maintain their independence and integrity.
