Dependable, Honest And Attentive Part-time Caregiver Available
In college, many years ago, I was part of a campus ministry to senior citizens where I listened to their reminiscences, held their hands, read to them, and savored their hugs. It was the beginning of an enduring interest in the issues concerning the elderly. Much later, I joined a team of caregivers in North Muskegon to care for an elderly couple who did not want to leave their life-long home. We managed their meds, drove them to doctors and stores, assisted in daily activities and self-care, and made their meals. They LOVED chocolate cake and I LOVED baking them! I also provided care to elderly women during summers at Sylvan Beach. The experience became so beneficial when my own parents came to need my care. My father was able to remain home until two days before his death. I know well the depth of concern for those facing the care of a beloved elderly parent. I have a clean driving record and, as a former federal employee, have passed all federal, state and local background checks.
