I love elderly people and believe they have earned the right to remain in their homes as long as possible. I enjoy providing assistance and companionship to people who can no longer get by on their own. I recently lost an Alzheimer's patient I took care of for six months and her final words to me were "You're my favorite. You listen to me. I wish we could send all the other girls away and take a walk around the driveway like we used to." I have a lot of patience and know that I can't take negative remarks personally. Those who need care may feel cranky and negative and that is perfectly understandable. I'm blessed to have my parents with me at the ages of 83 and 86.
