Hi! I was a caregiver for my grandmother 24/7 for over five years. She was wheelchair-bound, severely handicapped with dementia. My daily responsibilities included companionship, giving meds, helping her with hygiene, transferring her, re-positioning her throughout the day/night so she did not get pressure sores, meal preps/feedings, working with home health care for home visits and transporting her to doctor visits. I took care of her in her final days with the help of hospice so I am experienced in the hospice process as well. For the last two years, I've been taking care of a woman with Parkinson's and dementia who lives in assisted living . Caregiving is my passion! I have a tremendous amount of experience plus my bachelors degree in psychology. I truly believe I was put on this earth to care for others. I have excellent references upon request!
