After working many years for a health insurance company, I made the decision to leave and begin a new career. I wanted a job that would allow me to enjoy my work while helping others. I have always enjoyed spending time with our senior population. These folks have made significant contributions to our society and still have so much to offer. Their perspective on life is refreshing. Over the past 10 years I have helped seniors that were close friends and family by spending time with them. I ran errands, prepared meals, and watched TV with them. I also spent time with them in a hospital emergency room to help them get the attention and care they needed. Over the past few years, I have helped a 77-year-old woman with daily activities after knee surgery. This included meals, errands, laundry and spending time with her. Another opportunity was being a companion for a few hours a week for a youthful 93-year-old woman. We have baked together, planted flowers, gone shopping and gone out for ice cream. I prepared meals, did laundry, and spent time with an 86-year-old. I have also worked with a 94-year-old woman assisting her with showers, running errands, taking her to appointments, going for rides in the car, and spending time with her doing the things she enjoys. I recently had the honor of working with a woman on hospice care. I was able to be a positive influence during the last few months of her life. We played games, went for rides in the country and had some wonderful conversations. What I can provide is exceptional care while being a kind and positive friend to your loved one. I would enjoy spending time with this special person by engaging them and participating with them in their interests such as games, reading, music, and other activities.
