I cared for my 71 year old father as a single parent with 4 children and at that time my baby was 2 and my oldest was 13 in 1997. My father was as a diabetic with high blood pressure and he also had strokes and dementia. I cared for my Dad for the last 5 years of his life and I enjoyed what I was doing. And after that I went on to caring for the developmentally disabled. My most achievement is know that I made a difference in someone else's life as I would hope to get the same treatment in my time of need.
