I have shared great joy working with seniors 80/90's, struggling with Alzheimer's and Dementia, for the last six years. I have been their light-hearted side kick, as a personal assistant and companion. My responsibilities included: medication administration, meal prep, feeding, hygiene needs from bathing/dressing/bathroom, housekeeping, laundry and transportation for appointments/groceries; allowing them to live safely and comfortably in their homes. We shared adventures organizing transportation, to meet their personal interest venues from music, art, hobbies, senior lunches, weekly day trips, vacations to family - friends' events and visits. I implemented an in-home medical, podiatrist, physical and occupational therapy team. I worked with various medical equipment as needed, which included the Hoyer Lift accompanied by companion transfer chair equipment, Sit to Stand lift and various wheel chairs.
