Caregiver

My mother

Dec 2006 - May 2015

My elderly mother was developing dementia and became unable to control her type 2 diabetes at age 85. I moved in with her for a little over a year to be a companion. This included taking care of the household, food shopping, Dr appts, cleaning house, laundry, medication management, preparing meals, etc. this was not a paying job, as it was caring for my mother.
