Meet Rosemary
I provided daily care and extensive oversight for an elderly couple, one with onset dementia, the other very frustrated about this development in their lives. I bridged communication between the two of them by interpreting the message and then relaying the information. I worked on encouraging appropriate responses to each other. Sometimes this required being physically between them. Mostly patience and sensitivity were required. I also prepared simple lunches and helped to keep the kitchen in order. I monitored the husband's medication, because he did not want to take the pills. I also provided his exercise, ordered by his physician, by walking with him, spurring him on step by step. His wife needed to talk as a relief. I would sit with her and primarily listen. I also was a liaison between elder couple and family members of both husband and wife. I left this job to return to school. The wife contacted me several times asking me to come back. Sadly, I had to decline. This was complex care. But as I look back on all my jobs, it was one of the most rewarding work I have done. I do not provide physical care, but I can help seniors with their other challenges.
