I have taken care of my aunt with dementia and parents, who are in their 80's and 90's. For 20+ years I have done grocery shopping, baths, dispensing medication, driven them to doctor appts and hairdressers, etc. My parents have lived with me since their 70's. In addition to typical age related issues my father is blind. My goal in working with seniors is ensuring they are happy and comfortable. I like to see them involved in activities within their abilities. I enjoy reading to them, going for walks, whether with a walker or wheelchair, working puzzles or games. Or just a ride in a car just for fun, fresh air and a change of scenery. I have a sister-in-law in a nursing home with Leukodystropy. Just cutting and painting her nails makes her happy. I am open and willing to learn any specifics related to the care of the individual. Such as continuing their at home therapy programs. Assisting seniors is very rewarding to me when I see them smile and laughing.
