For eight years, my bible study group visited nursing homes in Akron, Ohio. I would read, feed and take care of any and all needs of the patient. I would love to take care of an elderly person. Take them shopping, take them to Drs appointments. I love cooking and baking. I also am a Christian and would always be tender and loving to the person I was taking care of. I am currently seeing over my neighbor, who is dying of stage 4 lung cancer. I cook for her and do shopping for her, as she id bed ridden. Her Son Joe also helps.
