After 40 years of traditional professional employment, I was recently affected by a significant reduction in workforce. In reflecting upon my career and deciding what to do next at this stage in my life, I thought I would like to find a means to make a difference in someone's life.
I had an excellent relationship with my grandmother and with other elders in my family. I assisted with providing hospice care when my-stepfather succumbed to complications from Alzheimer's and I helped to care for my in-laws in their declining years. When my mother-in-law died, I brought my father-in-law home to live with us and provided his daily care for over 2 years and provided in home hospice care at the end.
So, I find myself in search of someone in need of companionship, help around the house, meal prep, shopping, transportation, etc. I love gardening and being outside. I also like to play scrabble, and do puzzles as well as other games.
