I have over 10 years experience with Cargiving. Im so passionate about quality care of disabled kids and Seniors or even Seniors whom need just a little help. My outlook is, In order for us to becoome Seniors we have had to do something good. Even the worst person has done SOMETHING good from giving a stranger $1 because they were down and out to holding the door for someone out of courteous. Whatever that good was, as a caregiver we have to show them that we thank them for whatever it was by giving them quality care, not a rush job, not because you need money to pay your bills, but because you care and nurturing is all you really know how to do! My mom had Cancer. Its important to know, you never frown or make a stinky face when changing an ileostomy bag. Knowing they can become fatigue 90% of the time is important from Chemo to their bodys trying to fight take alot out of them. Understanding alot of days they may not want to eat ANYTHING but you have to ensure to get nutrition by giving them a boost ensure or something because they must drink and have liquids. Im comfortable and confident with all parts of care from insulin, to checking blood pressure, oxygen machine, inhalers, suction machine, hoyer lifts, wound care, G-tube feeding, Dementia/Alzheimer, Diabetics, and much more to fun activities, bingo, crocheting, card games and a day out into town.
