My name is Rachel and I live in Walcott, IA. I helped take care of my mom and aunt until they passed away. They were both diagnosed with stage 4 cancer about 9 months apart and passed away 11 months apart. Towards the end the cancer went to the brain which caused memory loss and behavior issues. I took them to doctor's appointments, helped with all activities of daily living and gave them there medications.
Currently my husband is dealing with some memory loss, personality issues and behaviors. This is attributed to damage to both of his frontal lobes from an accident that he was in. I give him his medications and check his blood sugar since he is a diabetic.
Thankfully we have family and friends that help out so I can work and take care of us. I am very caring, helpful, loving, dependable and organized. Safety is also a top priority of mine when it comes to caring for someone.
