I have taken care of several people over the ten plus years I have been in in home healthcare. At the present time I have been taking care of two brothers in wheelchairs with muscler dystrophy for the past nine and a half years. I take care of the household and some yard work,do meals, doctors appointments. Which I have to load them in the van that has a lift. I have worked on wheelchairs some. Fixed things around the house. At the holidays I make hard candy and sell it a dollar a bag. Then a couple of days before christmas I go buy there essentials with the money made. This year I sold hundred and thirty five dollars. I give them time that I don't get paid for, but that is my choice. So I guess you could say I do a little of everything.
