I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping and caring for others especially those with Alzheimer's Disease as I have an over abundance of patience. During the last 25 years I have been primarily a live-in caregiver therefore I have been with them up to the time they passed away. I have also taken care of patients on Hospice. I have been a cake decorator for over 35 years, I enjoy crafts and taking clients to senior centers for the assorted activities they offer.

Live-in caregiver for her aunt.

Dr. Mary Louise Labrucherie

Mar 2012 - Dec 2013

I was a live-in caregiver for her Aunt Mary who had Alzheimer's. I kept her entertained by taking her to the senior center recreational events for lunch and bingo, to the high schools for bingo and to various events sponsored by the mobile home park where she lived. I cooked, cleaned, grocery shopping, laundry, gardening, cut her hair, did her nails, took her to her Dr. appointments and took care of her little dog. When she turn ed for the worst and was receiving hospice care I took very good care of her until the last day of her life. She passed away at 95 years of age. ... more

Feb 2009 - Mar 2012

Her mother Mary was in the middle stage of Alzheimer's, a diabetic, took numerous medications for other illnesses. She often hid her medication and refused to take them I had to find them, crush them and hide them in her food. I cut and dyed her hair and mended her clothing. I cleaned her house, fixed some of her meals, did her laundry, grocery shopped and took her to her Dr. appointments. I also reorganized her cupboards and close ts. Her husband was in a local nursing home and I transported her there everyday and waited while she visited with him. She was eventually put in a nursing home by her son. ... more
