I did senior care for over a year, through Care. com. Most recently I provided transportation and scheduling of appointments for an elderly couple, even after they moved into an assisted living facility. The husband had been in and out of the hospital and the wife had early signs of Dementia. My mother & mother-in-law also had/have Dementia and I have cared for them, so I am very familiar with it. Prior to that, for 7 months, until she moved back home to Illinois, I took a lady to doctor appoints, the grocery store and any other place she needed to go. I would also help her with things around her house. I got to know the couple and the lady's families very well, who all lived out of state. In-between the senior care, I did pet care for close to 1 1/2 year, so if you have pets, that is fine by me.
Prior to all this, I did volunteer work for a man with Alzheimer's, Meals on Wheels and helped out and brought a 95-year-old lady to our Bible study, weekly. I enjoy caring for seniors.
