Currently in the past 6 months, I worked Respite care. Lived at patients home 24/7 for 2 months with 2 separate patients that had shoulder replacement and hip replacement. Provided total care, cook, clean, and drive as needed.
One other patient, the husband has a stroke and the wife had a broken shoulder. Provided care and assistance with daily living and moving to a new house.
For the past 12 years, I've had a male patient that needed care because of a broken hip, when he passed away from cancer his wife, that had macular degeneration so she needed assistance. I drove her to doctor appts., shopping, visiting friends, and lunches. worked 4 hours a day 5days a week, 12:30 - 4:30. I also worked holidays, weekends, and family events.
With another patient, I worked the weekends. she was in a car accident and is in an vegetative state due to a lack of oxygen to the brain. I provided total care, physical therapy, standing, and compassion. This is What I am, and Who I am.
