I'm a 47 year old, mother of a college age daughter, and an eight year old son. I have cared primarily for several family members. My first experience with providing care was in 1994. My older sister was diagnosed with cancer . I took care of her during Her treatment, Sadly, the treatments failed to heal her. I then saw her through the last 6 months of her life. Then , my mom was diagnosed with small celllung cancer in 2004. I also cared for her during treatment, then through out the last few month of her life. Also cared for my father from 2012-2014. He had congestive heart failure in May of 2014. I'm currently caring for my mother in law , She has had several back surgeries due to falls. I assist with her physical therapy and memory exercises. She was recently diagnosed with dementia. I take care of most of her general needs. Grooming, bathing, meals, grocery shopping, setting appointments. Transportation, house keeping. I also care for her dog and a cat. I love taking care of others. There is nothing more rewarding as helping those who can not take care of themselves. We will all need someone to care for us eventually . I care for people in the manor which I hope to be treated when my time comes for such a need. I'm currently caring for my Husband's parents but, in need of a second income to support our family. I share part of responsibility with his sister. I'm only available for approximately 12 to 18 hours per week. My availability is as follows. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, 6pm to 11pm. Not available on Wednesdays. Also available any time on weekends. If my schedule fits the needs of your family, please contact me. Thank you! Resa Wheeler
