I have always navigated towards seniors. Anywhere from neighbors to family members at reunions. I have been told I have an old soul.
In previous years, I have had paid experience in Texas. A rewarding experience was with an easy arrangement for a neighbor and across town family. Then when I moved to Indiana I was fortunate to be able to help a neighbor with the same situation.
Unfortunately both parties and their sisters are now deceased.
I became the primary caregiver for both my in-laws when they were with us. I found it was important to care for them as adults so many times people treat them as children. In some cases this takes more patience because naturally their response times are slower. During their senior years they have more than earned that level of respect.
The term assistance is sometimes lost. I love to engage them on different levels, pending on the individuals coordination and motors skills. Not only with daily chores but with puzzles, card games and crafts of different kinds. Walks are important if possible.
Also one needs to be aware of physical symptoms that they may present without being vocal. Must be vigilant of meds and appointments. Close attention to dietary requirements for diabetics, high-blood pressure and heart heath, just to mention a few.
I am a very compassionate soul and would welcome the opportunity to work with your family.
I am over 50 and in good heath. I have transportation and willing to travel. I charge $10 per hour, open for discussion.
My availability of hours are very flexible.
Thank you, Susan
