About Tanya

I became a caregiver because my grandparents started getting older, one of my grandpa's had a heart attack and triple bypass surgery, my other grandpa had a stroke and lost his perefial vision and my other grandfather developed dementia. As well, my father has had 2 complete knee rebuilds and his shoulder/collar bone surgery. Then my mother had 2 neck surgeries, major back surgery, cold and is now 100% disabled. As well, my Aunt & grandma live together and are both completely disabled and they all are on oxygen 24/7.So I was afraid of sending them just to anybody so I figured if I took care of them I know they would be very well taken care of. So when I'm taking care of other people's family I take care of them as they were my own family. Dementia is a very hard disease to deal with but it made me happy knowing that I got to spend my last days with him. I was also in a CPR training class, which not too long ago came in to be a very important training, when one of my patients stop breathing. Instantly I went right into action and started CPR on her and thank God and my training I was able to bring her back. That makes me feel very good today. On a good note when I was in college I was given the "most enthusiastic" award.
