About Sandra

I am a single mother of 5 and my children are all grown now. I took care of my elderly neighbor on a volunteer basis for 12 years. I was not paid any money but had love and compassion for her. She was in a wheelchair and lived alone. On a daily basis I would collect her mail, wash clothes or sheets as needed, tidy her house, make sure she had something to eat, and wash her dishes. On the weekends I cut her grass in the summer and do a weekly grocery shopping run and put groceries away. On a monthly basis I would pick up her monthly prescriptions and take her to doctor visits as needed. I would spend some evenings throughout the week for 1 - 2 hours keeping her company which included a weekend. In addition each morning I would dress her legs with bandages to stop the fluid seeping from her legs as requested by her doctor. I arranged for her to have an electric wheelchair to help her get around better which she could not get used to so reverted back to her old wheelchair. From Age 95 - 98 she became more work becoming incontinent and I had to go early each morning to help her sit on her mobile toilet. I washed her and changed her sheets and clothes each day at this point. Being a single mother with all 5 children still at home it all became too much for me. I arranged for her to go into a nursing home which she could get the best care. Lucille had not seen her family in 30 years so she had no one besides me. As you can see I am very compassionate and considerate
