The past seven years I have provided care for a married couple until the wife passed away from Alzheimer's, then continued on with the husband's care. Recently his daughter decided it was time for a care home. I've been doing this type of work for 20 years part-time. I like helping people and making sure they still have some form of independence and enjoyment in their lives. I usually stick with one person or family so I can offer flexibility with schedules.
