Hi my name is Ruth. I was recently caring for a man, for 3 1/2 years. He passed away 2 weeks ago, 2 weeks shy of his 103rd birthday. I also cared for his wife, she passed away a year ago. I love caring for people. My job responsibilities for them were to, get them washed and dressed for breakfast. Feed them breakfast. During the day I did light housekeeping, ran errands (went to pharmacy, food shopping, took them to appointments) I then fed them lunch, then at dinner time cooked a light dinner, washed and dressed then for bed. I am looking forward to helping you with your family member. Thank you Ruth
