Compassionate Caregiver Experienced With Dementia
I have had the joy of working with 2 of the most precious elderly people for 5 years. The husband had dementia & the wife desired help. My days with him were spent on walks, doing physical therapy exercises, cooking together, playing games, & reading about his favorite subjects (I know more about Joe Namath than I ever thought I would!). We ran errands when we could & spent Derby together so the family could go to the races. It was a joy to care for him while providing the family confidence and freedom to get away.
For her, I was a help & support in any way that she needed. It started off as clerical help with the computer & correspondence with some basic meal prep & errands. It transitioned into research & support for her husband's changing dietary needs. Eventually, upon his passing, she asked me to stay on & help her settle their estate and work through things. It was one of my greatest joys to serve them both.
Ideally, I am looking to work 3 days a week, 15-18 hrs/wk.
