I am a mom with a lively 4-year-old. I have been care-taking for almost 25 years starting as the oldest of four siblings. I have 17 years experience babysitting kids of all ages and needs. My own daughter has severe food allergies so caring for her has been a worth while challenge. Paying attention to details and following specific instructions are my specialty.
About 6 years ago, I started caring for my great grandmother. I cared for her for 5 years until she passed. I have a lot of experience working with an elderly woman. My great grandmother declined quickly so I went from helping her walk to the bathroom to caring for her completely bedridden. I have always been a compassionate person but caring for my great grandmother and caring for her daughter (my grandmother) during this painful time deepened my understanding of other's dignity.
I also worked hard to be my great grandmother's healthcare advocate as well. I was well researched to be able to ask the needed questions.
