I have a master's degree in special education. I have provided direct care to persons with disabilities in a group home setting for the 9-10 years. I took care of an adult with disabilities in a group home setting while receiving hospice services until he passed away. I took care of my mother for a year after she had a stroke and became paralyzed. She had a second stroke and passed away. I took care of an elderly lady with dementia in her home and assisted her husband with household maintenance, for a year until she had surgery and had difficulty recovering from surgery and was moved to a nursing home. I have been providing on going care for my elderly aunt and uncle and lived with them for awhile assisting her after she had a heart bypass. He has dementia. I provided assistance with transportation, grocery shopping, cooking, medication management, hygiene, making appointments and transporting and assisting. I assisted with paperwork necessary for him to go to the Veterans home.
