I work 12 hour shifts. This is my current job. I care for one 89 year old lady, in her home. Showering, toileting, medication & insulin are done daily. I plan and make her meals. I spend time watching shows with her ( just finished the whole series of Dowton Abbey) & many other fun things. I help her get dressed and assist her to bed. I change her diapers if needed, sometimes she doesn't make it to the toilet. I do many household chores. I do everything required to live for her while I am there.
