I had the honor of being a full time live-in caregiver for a special needs child (Rett Syndrome) for quite some time (6 years). I also work in Senior care & have experience working with clients dealing with Alzheimer's/Dementia (3 years). It isn't just a job for me, it's a rewarding experience that I want to continue. People will often say to me, "Wow. That's a lot of responsibility. I couldn't do it...". My response is always, "We tend to take for granted the little things we are able to do, such as feeding ourselves. But trust me if they were also able to it, they would. So I'm just here to help". I would love the opportunity to work with your family. Hope to hear from you soon...
