About Patricia

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. I have taken care if 1 terminally ill patient this last year and I sit periodically with a gentleman that has dementia.
