Hi! I'm retired, looking for a part time job to supplement my income. Even though my experience in this field is limited, I have always felt comfortable around older people. I grew up being around adults as I was the youngest of 6 children. My first involvement in this type of work was when I was in grade school and my mom used to care/stay with some senior residents when a home care provider she knew would need to go out for an evening once in a while. She would take me with her. Then eventually, my Mom lived in a senior high rise and later in a nursing home for several years. I've always been a good listener and a person with a lot of patience. Basically, I think if you just treat someone the way you'd like to be treated, that it works for all ages.
