I love to work with the elderly, they are so cute and they need someone to talk to. I took care of my mom who had colon cancer, I also took care of an elderly woman who was 102, she was the sweetest thing but she had dementia so she got in those moods but it didn't bother me. I am a retired 67 year old and I need to get back to work. I would love to go back being a companion for the elderly. I took care of my mom and Mary the 102 woman for only about 4 years, my mother passed away. I have six children all grown up now and I have guardianship for my granddaughter who is 14 I had her since she was a newborn. I did work as a cashier for a grocery store for 10 years, they went out of business. I also worked for an Opthomologist for 13 years then I retired.
