Experience & Education

caregiver/companion

Dec 2008 - Dec 2011
Privare Care
I cared for my mother, live in, for three years. She had multiple health problems that I nursed her through including Alzheimers. My Mom went downhill slowly for three years and quickly at the end. Because of her pain and inability to walk, we had Hospice Care in the end. Even though I saved my Mom's life through chronic fungal pneumonia and other serious problems, I believe my biggest attribute was my companionship with her. I planned fun things each day to quell her depression. I also had to be very creative with meals as she had anorexia due to the Alzheimers. I am also very skilled in planning safety for Alzheimers patients. We had to install video cameras, alarms at house perimeters and a bed alarm. It is a skilled science to plan perfectly for each patient. Taking care of my Mom added many skills to my toolbox as a caregiver.

I cared for my mother during her declining years. It was the most valuable time in my life and I am so happy that I had those long days with her. You can contact any of my siblings to ask how I did. Just ask me and I'll provide their names and phone numbers.
