My name is Laura Hope and I was a caregiver for a 95 year old woman for 3 1/2 years in Tarzana. Even though she had dementia and could not remember my name, I was know to her as "my girl" and we had a very caring relationship. During that time, I became very fond of her and treated her like my family. My responsibilities were to assist her in making it to her potty chair, changing her diapers, administering her medications and making sure we always had them on hdd Photoand, making all her meals, getting her dressed, having the same conversations (over and over) knowing what she liked to do in her dai ly habits, getting her to her doctors appointments, and administered to all her needs. I also tried to keep her days fun for her. After she broke her hip and was in the rehabilitation center, I stayed with her and followed up on what she needed and wanted, kept in communication with her doctors and let them know the best way to handle her to get her to do what she needed to do. While at her stay at the rehab center, she got a stage 4 bed sore so I learned how to change her dressings when she was released. I have a very healthy respect for the elderly and enjoy hearing about all the things they have witnessed in their lifetime. I always treat them with dignity and respect. ... more
