I started in home health care in 2009 taking care of a gentleman who was in his 80's. He had dementia and Parkinson's disease. When I first started to care for him he was in a nursing home with pneumonia, and had little health care. I would arrive in the morning to help with physical therapy, assisting with meals, showering, and entertainment. I followed up taking care of him when he returned home as well. After he passed away, I enjoyed assisting with the elderly so much I decided to take on a new patient. She was a woman. I was with them for 3 1/2 years. I assisted her in the same needs as my previous client but also became more hands on and assisted in the household duties, doctors appointments, along with giving out meds. As time passed on I ended up needing to take care of her husband as well as he fell ill trying to care for his wife. After about 6 months the family decided they would be better served in assisted living. Just recently I was taking care of a woman who was in hospice and very ill. This was a very short period of time but we became close and she has just recently passed. I enjoyed these jobs because I was able to use my skills and love.
