I am not an experienced caregiver as of yet. I have been unemployed for 4 months. During this time I have been helping my elderly neighbor. He is 95, and he doesn't miss a trick. I do light housekeeping and laundry. Also grocery shopping, just a few items weekly I am a single grandmother too an 8 year old girl. So I do need the flexibility to allow us to have the time we need for everyday school responsibilities , etc. I am a mature women of 58 and also a breast cancer survivor. Many obstacles have been sent my way over the years and I have still been able to keep my optimism. I've had some wonderful people in my life and I feel now it's time to pay it forward and treat people the way I would hope to be treated in my senior years.
