It was my awesome pleasure to move my mom into my home and care for all of her needs for over 2 years while she suffered from cancer. Currently, and for nearly 3 years on weekends, I have been caring for my aunt, who has Alzheimer's Disease. I love listening to elderly neighbor's stories during visits to their homes and I have helped them in various ways. In care-giving, I accept challenges, along with joys, and learn from them. I believe the diverse caring situations within my family have prepared me well to be a calm, kind, careful, responsible, and compassionate caregiver.
For 34 years, I have also had the privilege of being a stay-at-home mom raising and caring for my 8 children. Caring for my 21 grandchildren is my joy and delight. My experience with children has enabled me to manage anything from health needs to tutoring, and more! For 6 weeks, recently, I was a fill-in nanny for a family with 4 children and have done after-school care for 2 neighbor children.
