Hello, I'm form Costa Rica, and I came to the USA almost four years ago as an AuPair, back in Costa Rica I finish my third year in medicine school. As an AuPair I was taking care of two beautiful girls, 9 and 5 years old (now) and my responsibilities were: picking and dropping from classes, laundry, meals, showers, bed time, get them ready in the morning and of course play with them, do crafts, sports, "pretending games", board games, go to parks, museums, and enjoy with them and I know this is not the same than caregiving of our elderly but as the kids have a love for the Unknown and to eat the world with questions and hunger for knowledge our elderly have all that knowledge to share in this case with me, I personally have a grandmother that is 95 now and I use to look after her back in Costa Rica, when she was 91, and I enjoy every second of it, I know it is a lot of work and hart sometimes but also it is well pay when I was able to just sit with her and listen to all the knowledge and stories she had to share!!
