About Adriana

My name is Adi. I became a caregiver because I love working with people, and especially with the elderly. I have always been fascinated by their stories, experiences and how great I feel after I spend a day with an elderly. When I am off work I like to write. I recently published a children's book and am working with an illustrator on publishing my 2nd book, however I am between jobs and am really looking to continue my career as a caretaker since I get the most satisfaction from being around people.

    I am by nature kind and caring. When my father became ill with colon cancer I was his caregiver. I would pick up and administer his meds. Knowing I could bring comfort to him mentally and help in his physical needs made me feel better as a person. He had come to a point where he was wheel chair bound. I drove him to all Doctor appointments. I also manicured him by that I mean shave his face, cut his hair, and fingernails. Prepared lunch and served him, I did anything to make him feel good about himself. I stayed with him for many hours daily till my mom came home. I also took care of my mother-in-law and she lived with me and my husband for 2 years. She was 91 and had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her care was different than my fathers. Nonetheless, her remaining years with us were eased, The care for her was serving her meals, help with bathing, walking with her, getting her into bed and out of bed. General all around every day living and care taking. Then there was my mom. I took care of her when she no longer could walk. She had had a triple by pass and severe emphysema. A few years later, she had a serious fall which led to a slow demise . I took care of her for 3 years. I enjoy knowing that I can help one in need.
