I find it necessary to work as a caregiver because the rewards are immeasurable. I enjoy working with people who appreciate the help of a health care team as the two strives to make the necessary health improvement or to maintain some measure of balanced well roundedness within ones own health care. I am most proud of how my son carries the tourch of compassionate forward in helping others. I have been a caregiver since I was very young. My Daddy had Parkinson's for 30 years and helped to care for him until his death in 1991. In the last 10 years if my Daddy's life we had to help feed him, administer medications, bath him and dress him. Then in 2001 my Mother was diagnosed with dementia and congestive heart failure. In about 5 years the dementia progressed to full blown Alzheimer's with all of the side effects. In the last 3 years she couldn't feed or dress gerself, so, I performed all if these tasks for ger until she passed in 2015.
I now help on the weekends take care of my uncle in Greenville, SC . He has Alzheimer's, Diabetes, COPD, Congestive Heart Failure. I administer meds, take blood counts and blood pressure, feed him, clean his house and wash his clothes.
