My medical/health care industry background of over 20 years prepared me to oversee my own parent's care when they became ill. I was in charge as they transitioned from their single family home to retirement home, assisted living, nursing home, then hospice. During these years I gained great respect, admiration and enjoyment for the seniors in these facilities. I was responsible for my parent's medication management, injections, ECG's, and doctor visits while in their own home and in the retirement home. While in the nursing home, I spent much of my time visiting with all the residents; wheeling them around, getting them things, talking with them, attending their activities, enjoying their sense of humor, or trying to cheer them up. When I worked for various physicians, I cared for a multitude of illnesses in our office. It seemed I was the one they liked to come to because I spent the most time talking with them; I never tried to rush them, always being sure they understood how to use any new medications or instructions they were given.
