About Joseph

Like most people my age my parents got to the point in life where they could not handle the activities of daily living. My mom has been legally blind for most of her adult life and started to suffer from dementia. My dad had heart problems as well as the usual assortment of age related illnesses. Being the only capable adult in California in the family I moved in with my parents in May of 2007.I cooked 3 meals a day, cleaned house, took both of them to numerous doctors appointments, assisted them in moving around as well as taking care of there personal hygiene. I also took local caregiving work in Laguna Woods to support myself. My father passed away in December of 2011 and at that time a family member from back east put my mom in an assisted living home. She rapidly deteriorated and within 9 months was put in another section of the facility for people with severe dementia. At that that time I continued to work for a gentleman in Laguna woods until he became unmanageable at which time I got the family to take over. In June of 2012 I started working for a 77 year old man in Newport Beach. I lived with him ,nursed him back to health after a stroke in June of 2012 until his sister put him in a convalescent home in May of 2013.I assisted my parents as well as my 2 clients in every aspect of living .I assisted in the sale of my last clients home in Newport Beach after discovering he was 6 months behind in his mortgage. All of my experience has been hands on real world situation
