About Lavenia

For myself, I have/had learn being a caregiver from my grandparents. My grandfather had bad asthma and had heart problem. I had started taking care of him since age of 6years old. I sleep side by side with him so that it is easy at night from time to time for him to awake me to get his medication, massage his legs if needed. From there I stay up between 2am-3am to assure he is okay to fall back asleep then I'll head back to bed. 6am I will be up make sure his coffee is brew ready to go. Through out the day make sure his meal is prepared. Late afternoon make sure he is bath ready for bed. This will be my task on a daily basis. Til his last breathe. My grandmother she had bad diabetes I was the only grand daughter that she was comfortable with so I will travel with her at all times, doctor visits & flights. It was a repeat of what I did to my grandfather till my grandmother's last breathe. Since they past I always have respect & passion catering to elderly people because it takes me back to how I had taken care of my grandparents.
