Hi my name is Hilda. I am a dedicated caring wife and best friend of over 34 years and a mother of 11 wonderful children who 8 of them have grown up to be strong loving adults and my younger three athletic and very involved with sports and art. I have devoted my time on the care nurturing for my family as all mothers do but the past 4 years had an unfortunate turn of events. My husbands knee implant was a failed prosthetic and cause him to become extensively disabled. Since 2012, I gave all my time in my husbands personal care, medical appointments, medication assistance and appointment scheduling. Asid e from the basic help, I stood by his side listening to his concerns of pain, his inability to provide as he used to and him feeling lonely and limited. It's one thing to be a wife but it's a whole new ability to have when you need to separate that relationship and be strong for your patient not your husband. This taught me to encourage him, give him small goals with doctors approval that he'd want to reach and also to help him to focus on positive from the experience and not negative setbacks but to hope and push for a brighter day coming. I wasn't prepared for this but I was trained well. My caregiving isn't a job to me, it's the opportunity given to me to help others to improve their lives and assist as much as I can to help ease the pain they suffer in their recovery period. No one expects these setbacks but it doesn't mean they have to deal with it alone, confused, scared or sad. I know this walk because I walked it with him Today after advocating and reaching all options available for his recovery and proper food choices my husband has lost substantial amount of weight and he is almost diabetic free, no more high blood pressure and walks and cares for himself independently. That's the purpose to give - great outcomes for the ill. ... more
