In 2011, my mother began to exhibit signs of dementia. She was subsequently diagnosed with Frontal Lobe Dementia. Her disease progressed from needing simple companionship to ensure her safety to the point that she required full time care.
After experiencing the care given by several reputable caregivers, I elected to retire early from my career in sate government to provide full time care to my beloved mother. I retired in 2015 and assumed that care.
Never once did she have a bed sore under my care. She was fed, bathed and given all the attention she rightly deserved. For the last few months, Vitas Hospice was involved in her care. I was told by many of the nurses and aides that they " have never seen anything like the care I provided my mother". I take solace in that fact!
Currently I volunteer at the Greater Lewes Community Village (GLCV) and provide bathing and dressing to an elderly man with Parkinson's.
