I am a certified massage therapist, although most of my work career has been in retail, I still do massages for some friends and acquaintances.
My grandfather had Parkinson's Disease, and I helped with his care, although he also had nursing care, it gave me an awareness of the disease and the care that is required. He died when he was 89. My grandmother lived to age 95 and needed help as she got older in shopping, cooking, going to the beauty shop. She could no longer see well, and couldn't go anywhere by herself, so I helped with that. After she was 90, she began to get dementia and needed constant care. She was cared for by family members including me, and lived at home until a week before she died.
I have an 8-year-old daughter who lives with my father and me, so she is main interest.
