Available For Prompt Care During The Week For The Elderly
I currently help my mother on a daily basis. She has COPD and dementia and has a lot of trouble getting around. I help her with her meds, all of her Dr. appts, meals, bathing, getting dressed, cleaning, laundry and any phone calls that need to be made pertaining to her care. Before caring for my mother, I took care of my father until he passed. I also have had 9 yrs experience working in the healthcare field as a phlebotomist at a local hospital. But even with that experience of working in the hospital I never knew how hard it was for families to take care of a parent in the home until my mother had to have 24 hour care. I would like to help other families out with this. It has truly become my calling and have so much respect for the elderly. I love to hear their stories they have to tell and just to try and make their lives a little easier as they age.
