I would very much like to give my time and help people in need of care as my father worked in a hospital for mental illnesses for more than 35 years. I have been exposed to people in need since I was 6 years old and leaned that helping people in need is the best deed one can do in life. Then my father now 82 developed Parkinson disease. I have been a long distance care giver for years now. Being about 12 hours away is very difficult but I help by supporting my brothers emotionally who live in the same town as my parents do. I helped out by being the communicator with some of the medical professionals and neurologists who are still supporting my father to get through the symptoms of this terrible disease. I am involved for that reason with a Parkison Foundation which by mostly provides advice to those who are care givers. I am a caregiver in a different way as well, being the Founder & leader of a non for profit organization in NYC having as a focus for the next couple of years the issue of population aging. Incapacity, many times I talked to aging people help them figure out the right need for themselves or for people they are caring for. I consider myself a caregiver because I care about people whether they are weak, old or young, afflicted with a permanent disease or just depressed about getting older or losing people close to them or the various aspects associated with aging.
