After being laid off 3yrs ago from work, my father-n-law had a heart attack, I moved in with my inlaws for a few weeks while he was recovering., and then every other day for a year I continued assisting around their home with meals, running errands, etc. At the same time my brother-in-law, had a terminal illness (cancer and hiv), and I became involved in driving him to his doctor appointments, therapy appointments, and picking up his medication for the month. He recently past... and soon after, my mother-n-law suffered from a massive heart attack. I currently continue to help my in-laws in and around their home. However, there is a caregiver that comes a few days a week, hired through Carelinx, and my mother-in-law is happy to have a new face assisting her a few days per week. Through all this, I have developed several skills and have taken on many challenges. Right now, my heart is continuing to be a care giver as I work my way in becoming an administrator for Medicare insurance.
