Wren has been my caregiver, healthcare proxy and even power of attorney since 2002. It was in that year that my health began to deteriorate. Fortunately for me, that's also when we met.
I had a liver transplant, renal failure and was at death's door. Wren became my medical ombudsman, interfacing between me and the University of Rochester medical staff at Strong Memorial. With her help, concern, patience and understanding I recovered.
Now, some fifteen years later, I am still on the green side of the sod and will be 73 this July. During this time span I have survived prostate cancer, a stroke and limited chronic kidney failure. She continues to be my caregiver, assisting me during my daily activities. She monitors my medicines and food in-take, takes me to and from doctor and hospital visits, assists with my personal hygiene, exercise and social events. She has helped me with physical rehabilitation, too, when needed, following the directions of the professionals.
You will want to check out her "Dorothy." It's a personal planning and management system for home care that my doctors and all their nurses and other staff have found to be indispensable.
She is kind, caring, highly intelligent, extremely organized and sincere about care-giving. I recommend her highly and without reservation based on my fifteen years of experience with her as my caregiver (both part-time and full-time).
