Owned a concierge service for 13 years. Covering 3 states. Outstanding with those who have Dementia/Alzheimer's. Volunteered with hospice 8 years. Drove seniors to Doctors and was an advocate on their behalf. Reporting back to families to make sure "details" of visit were correct. Taught to use a computer/phone. Cooking, shopping, taking care of pets, laundry and light clean up. NOT licensed to do bathing/dressing. After caring for seniors so long I am shocked at how they're treated in offices. I never let that slide. I functioned as a Geriatric Care Manager. MANY used my service and in home care. Created memory books with many (going through photo-books and listening to stories). Got some back into gardening by planting w/them or for them. In home care givers SIT and watch TV. most of these folks are lazy. I know, I fired many. I will not do that. I will take care of your parent as if he/she was my own. I am also excellent at downsizing seniors.
