Personal Companion At Community, Home Observationalist
Loving a parent through the transition of aging can be very stressful and time consuming, leaving the family drained and spent emotionally.
As a Personal Companion it has been my personal experience to assist the family through this process by taking on the burden of spending time, learning about, and helping their parent enjoy life despite both not knowing what to do, or where to go to for relief and answers to this dilemma.
The fear is real and having a companion offers a friend, and comfort during a tough process that is just as difficult for both.
I have enjoyed serving in this role because I have been instrumental in both inspiration but also empathetic counseling helping all involved enjoy this end of life pinnacle with meaning and purpose.
