I've had a lot of experience as a companion, caregiver, and a person to run erands for a senior citizen. My mother lived with us for the last 15 years of her life. She lived to be 102 and was able to pass on in her own bed at home surrounded by her family. I was her best friend, companion, caregiver, and the person who ran errands for her. I took her to church, her circle meeting, the doctor, shopping, and outings. I believe in encouraging a person to keep her dignity and enabling them to have as normal life as possible. I would like to do that again.

Visiting Angels

Jul 2016 - Jul 2016

I went into homes of elderly people who needed companionship, help with bathing, personal care, meal preparation, taking them to the hair dresser, errands such as going to the grocery store, or buying groceries, going out to eat, whatever they needed. We became friends.I truly enjoyed this. I was forced to stop for a while because I was in a car accident. I was in t-boned by a drunk driver and had to stop for a while because of my injuries. I am now back to normal and very anxious to be a caregiver again. ... more
