Personal Care Attendant, Companionship, Housekeeping, Meal Prep, Groceries Looking For Part-time Work

I've had the pleasure of caring for individuals in a group home when I worked for Coast Rehabilitation Services 1/2011 thru 6/2911. I provided personal care, medications, monitored health, cooking, housekeeping & companionship. I cried when I left this position and cry every time I see these individuals in public. They have touched my heart in a very special way. Since then I have been an advocate for my mom during her last 2 knee surgeries. It's been quite the journey. I was by her side as her voice and still am her voice with her health care. I brought her homemade meals when she was in the hospital and was present with every Dr. visit. I learned from physical & occupational therapy how to care for mom and guide her to be mobile again. After she was in the care center for rehabilitation for 6 weeks before I brought her home with me for 5 months. I was at her side 24/7 assisting her with personal care, physical and occupational therapy, cooking, housekeeping, grocery shopping, medications, exercise & supplementation. After 5 months of care in my home she was able to go back home with her husband. You see when my mom was at my home for rehab, she came with a hospital bed, bedside commode, shower bench, electric wheelchair, and a walker. She had an external brace on her right leg to keep it straight because she had no knee nor hardware in place of a knee. It was painful and hard for her to walk. Basically she had to learn to walk all over again. She could only walk a couple steps forward and backwards when she came to live with me. When she left she was able to walk 50 feet to bathroom and back again. She had also asked for my help in getting off her excessive weight. She lost around 70 pounds during the 5 months at my house. And another 25 to 30 within the year. So approximately 100 excess pounds. She looks great and feels great. Her main challenge through this besides the physical has been her dementia. I didn't realize my love for caring at this level until I did it. I am passionate when I am able to enrich other people's health and wellness.
