    Caregiver Private Home Care

    Oct 2009 - Aug 2012
    Live-in with family
    I provided care for a lovely lady at the age of 99 years old and she left us as the age of 102 years old. During the time I lived with her I provided her with assistance of activities of daily living, from bathing, dressing, grooming, and other hygiene care. Also, she needed assistance with toileting, bed baths when she was too weak to walk. I cooked her healthy meals, made sure she was hydrated with adequate amount of water. Assisted her with medications. She was a lively lady so she enjoyed pool side activities with her neighbors, sitting at her patio door, she enjoyed wheel chair rides around the neighborhood and occasionally watched television game shows. Getting to know her over the years was rewarding and It was a pleasure to live with her for 3 years. I continued to work with other family members providing the same level of care as a Live-in for the next 2 years..
